MWSF: MacPlay Unveils Aliens vs Predator 2
2:59 PM | Eddie Park | Comment on this story

In a surprise announcement at Macworld Expo today, the folks at MacPlay finally revealed the identity of their heterofore secret title known previously as Project Deuce. As some readers speculated in the IMG forums, Project Deuce is in fact Aliens vs Predator 2, the sequel to the highly popular Aliens vs Predator.

Though details are slim at this point, we do know that Hyperion has been chosen as the porter of this title, with MacPlay holding the publishing rights. Hyperion was also responsible for the Mac port of Shogo: MAD and is also porting No One Lives Forever to the Mac for MacPlay.

Aliens vs Predator 2 takes you to Planet LV1201, where three diverse and bloodthirsty species battle for survival. The story-driven plot weaves together the fates of all three races, while the action is as heart-stopping as the blockbuster films on which it is based. Choose to play as Alien, Predator, or Marine as you use your physical prowess, killer instincts, or superior firepower to stay alive.

AvP 2 features include:

Single Player Mode
  • Play as Alien, Predator, or a Colonial Marine-each armed unique new weapons and abilities
  • 21 intense single player missions set in three interlocking story lines

    Multiplayer Mode

  • Play as 1 of 10 characters in 12 multiplayer levels including Species Team Maps and Deathmatch
  • Game types include survivor, Deathmatch, Team Deathmatch, and Hunt

    State-of-the-Art Graphics and Engine

  • New highly detailed environments including LV1201 landscapes
  • 32-bit animated light mapping for phenomenal effects
  • Advanced game engine using LithTech Development System
  • As for when it will be available, MacPlay currently estimates sometime in the second quarter of 2002.

    IMG will be sure to keep readers updated as we receive more information on these exciting developments.
