Primal Alien

Aliens vs Predator 2 add-on sneaks up on Sierra

Sierra and Fox Interactive have announced that an expansion pack for Aliens vs Predator 2 is on the way. Developed by Third Law Interactive, the company behind the surprisingly entertaining KISS Psycho Circus game, the pack will feature three new single player missions for each of the three species, four new multiplayer maps, two strange new indigenous lifeforms to annihilate, a variety of new weapons and combat styles (including deployable sentry guns - oh yes) and of course all the latest patches and updates from Monolith for the original game. Subtitled Primal Hunt, the add-on centers around a mysterious ancient artifact which could hold the key to defeating the aliens. Naturally it's not long before a predator, a human mercenary and a lethal hybrid of alien and predator are all battling it out to get their hands on the prize as hostile aliens overrun the base. European release details are still unclear (indeed, the publisher's UK office apparently didn't know anything about the expansion pack until they read about it on an American news site this morning), but in the US it's due out in July for $20.
