The quartet of maps exclusive to the Special Edition of Aliens vs. Predator will be offered as DLC to everybody eventually.
That's what Tim Jones, head of art and design at developer Rebellion told VG247.
"Downloadable Content on day one for those who purchase the Special Editions will consist of four brand new multiplayer maps: two new Survivor maps and two for the other multiplayer modes," he said.
"That will become available to everybody else soon after release. As for post-launch DLC, watch this space."
Aliens vs. Predator is out next Friday, 19th February on PC, PS3 and Xbox 360. GAME, HMV and Play are offering unique pre-order deals, one of which includes a facehugger toy that surely all children will enjoy.
