First Alien Vs. Predator Evolution Trailer Released, Marked as “Coming Soon”

AVP Revolutions

Today, we are getting our first look at an upcoming Aliens Vs. Predator game called, Evolution. You may or may not know this, but I am a diehard Aliens franchise fan. And yes, I will argue till the cows come home that Prometheus was in fact, an Aliens prequel. Anyways, from what we know so far, you play as either a xenomorph or hunter, while pretty much destroying humans and any other enemies that decide to get in your way. Typical AVP storyline.

The graphics looks pretty smooth, given the textures aren’t very heavy. That may change once the game gets closer to release though. And speaking of release, we have no time frame for that. Sad face.

Watch the trailer below and let me know what you think. So, what are you? Alien or Predator?

    The dead marine must be the proper Google Android experience with Wallet, timely OS updates and all and the alien must be Verizon.

    This looks like it could be a heck of a lot of fun. Here’s hoping that it lives up to the potential shown in the trailer.

    never could understand what makes people want to play games on a phone , pc screen or large flatscreen on the wall yes, but a tiny smart phone screen is just a waste of time IMHO

    HA Tim, Prometheus was marketed as a Prequel, silently till movie goers went to see the movie. Like you I am a big fan of the Predator/Alien series as well :)

    I just wish a big time director like Spielberg would do one of the films with his backing. Oh and get back to working on the “Weak Sauce” t-shirts lol :)

    Predator all the way, but Alien is right there. amazing storyline

    Alien vs. Predator was my FAVORITE old school computer game. Online multiplayer was freaking sick. The option to choose to be a Human, Predator, or Alien. And during the night, the Single Player where you’re in that dark space ship with nothing but a mag light. & gun. SO SCARY. You think slender man is freaky, wait to you play it with an Alien jumpin out lol

      Same here, I remember spending a good many afternoons playing the patched version of the game. I would find an arena that was small enough that I could hide up top as an alien and then spawn marines, androids, predators, and other aliens to fight each other. Maybe even toss in a xenoborg to finish off who ever survived :)

      You’re right about the marine missions…probably the most suspenseful game I’ve played. In fact I didn’t finish the Xbox version because it was getting on my nerves freaking me out.

      The multiplayer was probably the first on line multiplayer game I tried but my connection was so bad I would always get kicked.

    Predator is just so bad ass. On a side note tim the evolutions tag you have on the description goes to revolutions instead then to a error page

      Fixed. I thought it was revolutions, then it wasn’t, etc etc. Just me working too quick.

        Tim have you heard this game coming out bet you would like Aliens: Colonial Marines

    Is anyone arguing that Prometheus ~wasn’t~ an Alien prequel?

    • http://www.droid-life.com/ Tim-o-tato

      Even Ridley and his writers say it’s not a direct prequel. Clearly, they are liars. He said something about it carrying the DNA of Aliens, but then he said there wasn’t even going to be xeno’s. Freakin’ Hollywood killing my childhood dreams. I don’t know, it’s frustrating clearly.

      • will bartlett

        You must be excited for Aliens: Colonial Marines then huh…

        • http://www.droid-life.com/ Tim-o-tato

          I follow ‘em on Facebook! Indeed, I am excited.

      • mike

        only problem i have with that is how the girl was crushed by the very slow falling ship. Roll out of the way dammit!

        • gokusimpson

          Such a shame. She was hot.

          It seemed slow moving but at that large of size it’s probably covering hundreds of feet a second.

        Trickery in wording. There will be a sequel to Prometheus, and that will be the actual prequel to Alien. Therefore, Prometheus is not the “direct” prequel.

        • Justin Swanson

          I read something about theoretically tying Aliens, Prometheus and Blade Runner together. I don’t know how factual it was… but I thought it’d give you guys something to look up ;)

          I am not a die hard Aliens enthusiast and I haven’t seen Prometheus yet… (wife doesn’t like “scary” movies and I don’t watch many without her)

          • steveindajeep

            with blade runner….dude you just blew my mind

            The movie “Soldier” also takes place in that same universe, the battle at Tannhauser Gate is listed on the service record of Todd (Kurt Russell).

        • Dw_astor

          supposedly the sequel will just go into the legend more. the one AFTER the sequel is supposed to be the direct prequel to Alien. (gonna be a trilogy)

          • Higher_Ground

            That’s kinda how I look at it. It’s in the same universe, has some of the same characters, but doesn’t follow the same story arcs (probably no Ridley). I also think they were trying to avoid any plot holes in the aliens universe.

      • r0lct

        I just think they wanted the freedom to not HAVE to make sure everything tied into the existing Alien movies perfectly and thay’s the only reason it isn’t officially a prequel.

        It also gives them the freedom to follow up the prequel trilogy with more movies that can either replace or remake the original trilogy.

        • Higher_Ground

          Yeah there is a huge amount of back story not included in the aliens movies. Not as big as the Star Wars fan universe but bigger than I would have expected

  • EvanTheGamer

    Kick-ass!
