Development


In December 2008, a Kotaku article stated that Sega had announced that an Aliens vs. Predator video game was being developed. This meant that Sega's other upcoming game, Aliens: Colonial Marines, would be pushed back so Aliens vs. Predator could be released first. It was later confirmed that Lance Henriksen was involved as one of the characters of the game, playing Karl Bishop Weyland.

In Jan 2010 Rebellion re-release Aliens v Predator as Aliens v Predator Classic 2000 through Steam, with updated graphics and online multiplayer.

Feb 2010 Rebellion released a demo shortly before the official release of the game. The PC release was a Steamworks exclusive title, regardless of where a game is purchased from, it required a Steam account to activate and play.

Development was at Rebellion with the team consisting of Paul Mackman producer, Tim Jones project lead, Alex Moore lead designer, Phil Gresley multiplayer designer, Martin Kennedy animator, Gordon Rennie writer and James Worrall writer.

In an interview along with AvPGalaxy in Jan 2010 at Rebellion, Phil Gresley discussing gameplay awards said, "So we’ve got an XP based leaderboard, we’ve got leaderboards for the number of matches you play and where you’ve done in each of those. Also a kills leaderboard so you can see how many people you’ve killed as an Alien, as a marine, as a Predator and of course, you’re overall standing in the global rankings."

Discussing map builds Phil Gresley said, "At the end we’ve got a selection of very good maps that work and play well. As you run around it’s going to be a very fluid experience. So the hardest part of doing all that was so to keep it as each species can move around the environment in their unique way. Always allowing Predator the space to jump around the environment, giving Aliens the routes so they can move through the shadows and have open areas to jump into the battles and then back out again to a safe area. It took a lot of revision but what we’ve ended up with is something that works really well. I think people are gonna like that."

Gameplay order discussed, Alex Moore said, "They interweave. The Alien starts first, the Alien player is partly responsible for everything going to shit – although it could be Weyland’s tinkering that to blame. After that all interweave and it gets a bit muddy."

Discussing PC and console games Alex Moore said, "Asura, our in house engine, is cross platform. It’s developed on PC, therefore it works on a PC. Then we aim at the consoles as much as possible."

Discussing the most challenging part of development Phil Gresley said, "Probably the challenges of getting the navigation sorted and making that work in environments. The rules don’t lend themselves to a detailed, realistic environment but we managed to find ways round those problems. And creating environments which are visually interesting but we can still move round them as all three species. So getting that nailed on the head and getting that working right took many months."
