Plot


Alien vs. Predator is a beat'em up by Capcom on the CPS-2 for the arcade in 1994. The default cabinet for the game allowed for up to three players to play simultaneously, although some smaller cabinets only allowed 2.

This game has never been "officially" ported to any home consoles or any other systems as of today, by Capcom nor Fox, and it remains exclusively an arcade game in genuine form. A port for the Sega 32X was announced for a 1995 release but it was never published

Alien vs. Predator: Arcade introduces seven stages connected via neat mini cutscenes with four playable characters each with a combo fighting move. A straight combo streak consisting of four or five consecutive hits available for each character, an ultimate attack useful to unleash punishment on all surrounding enemies and an option to grab most adversaries. Charge movements are available to, these are very useful both to change places very swiftly and to unleash powerful attacks on multiple opponents and an upper and lower level charge attack is accessible.

Walkthrough


San Drad, California has been overrun by Xenomorphs. Two soldiers were caught in the town during the initial alien outbreak and were abandoned by the rest of their team as well as their superiors, and are cornered by a swarm of xenomorph drones. Before they can be killed, two Predators appear and destroy the xenomorphs, saving the soldiers. The Predators offer an alliance with the cybernetic humans, in order to stop the Xenomorph infestation. Eventually, it is discovered that the Alien presence on Earth (and the subsequent swarm that overran San Drad) was the result of an experiment headed by an USCM colonel in conjunction with the Weyland-Yutani corporation. In the end, the Alien Hive on Earth is destroyed in a scene similar to that in the ending of the fourth Alien film Alien Resurrection - A military ship is set on a course that causes it to crash into San Drad. The story ends with the veteran Predator (Predator Warrior) breaking off his wrist blade and giving the piece to Linn and Dutch. When asked why the Predators helped, they jokingly light their Plasma Cannon sights at them with the leader saying, "They'll know." before departing into space. Indicating their hunting season is over for now.
