My copy of Aliens vs. Predator
is sitting on my desk right now gathering dust. I'm still debating if I want to play the game or just return it and use the money to buy Heavy Rain
or God of War III
Those who have purchased the game will be interested to know that the first DLC for the game is the "Swarm Map Pack" which adds two new multiplayer maps and two new survivor maps to the game. The map pack will be available via Steam/PSN/Xbox Live on March 18th and will set you back $6.99/560 MS Points.
I'm not sure that this map pack is enough to convince me to play through the game but if you want to persuade me leave some comments on this post.
First DLC Swarms To Aliens vs. Predator™
Swarm Map Pack Available On March 18th
San Francisco (March 8th 2010) – SEGA of America today announced that the first downloadable content for Aliens vs. Predator will be available on Xbox LIVE® Marketplace for the Xbox 360® video game and entertainment system from Microsoft®, PlayStation® Store for the PlayStation®3 computer entertainment system and STEAM for PC. Featuring 4 new maps for different multiplayer modes, previously only available in the Special Editions, this downloadable content will challenge all 3 species for the fight of their existence.
Two new Multiplayer maps for six different online modes (Deathmatch, Predator Hunt, Infestation, Species Deathmatch, Mixed Species Deathmatch and Domination) :
* Docks: The caustic alkali waters of BG-386 put an end to Weyland-Yutani’s planned shipping activities. But this dockyard soon became an historic battleground.
* Machine: As well as processing exotic ores, the BG-386 Refinery provided electrical power to the colonists at Freya’s Prospect. The lights may still be on, but nobody’s home. Yet.
Two new Survivor maps in which up to four Marines battle to stay alive against increasing swarms of Aliens:
* Outpost: The site of the original Weyland-Yutani colony on BG-386 was abandoned, and soon reclaimed by the planet’s voracious jungle plant life. It is now the perfect hunting ground for all manner of wildlife.
* Hive: Deep in the heart of the Freya’s Prospect Refinery lays the Xenomorph Hive. Beware all who enter here.
The “Swarm Map Pack” will be available on March 18th for $6.99 or 560 Microsoft Points.
