Sega made me very happy today by announcing that they are working on a new Aliens vs. Predators
game that will hit stores in early 2010. The game is being developed by Rebellion, the same folks who did such a great job with the license almost a decade ago. There aren't a lot of details but the original game had three separate campaigns allowing you to play as an Alien, Predator, and Human. If they did something like that and added co-op gameplay then I would be a very happy camper. Even a Left 4 Dead
type survival mode where a group of people played re-spawning aliens against a group of humans/predators would be a lot of fun. What would you like to see in the game? Leave your thoughts in the comments.
