This game is a sequel to the 1999 first-person shooter that featured two of the most frightening movie monsters in recent history. As in the original, gamers are able to play as a human marine, an alien, or the predator in three separate storylines. Full featured multiplayer games are also supported. Many of the weapons and abilities from the original Alien vs. Predator return in this title, though some have been dropped and others added. Developed by Monolith, the game runs on the 3.0 version of the LithTech engine and is designed to provide state-of-the-art lighting and texture effects for immersing, spooky environments.
