Aliens Vs. Predator Multiplayer Modes Revealed; Demo Coming Tomorrow

February 3, 2010 Written by Zak Islam

The hotly anticipated Aliens Vs. Predator will undoubtedly give gamers a new multiplayer action experience like never before. Sega has detailed what we can expect from the shooter’s multiplayer component. Sega has also revealed that demo will be available on the PlayStation Store tomorrow.

There are some pretty interesting online modes in AvP, including the standard modes you would expect like death match and domination. Here’s the list:


It’s all about getting the most kills in the time limit set. Players can also win the match by hitting the target score before anyone else.


One player starts the match as an Alien Hunter and their task is to kill the Marine prey. When a Marine player is killed they will join the Alien Hunter team and help to kill off any remaining Marines.

Just like Death Match, but with mixed species. Two teams, made up from all three species fight to get the most kills in the set time limit or to reach the target score before the other team.

Survivor allows for up to four players to enter an arena to fight waves of progressively stronger aliens. Each arena will be set up with two main areas. One will be a platform which is relatively easy to defend; the other will be an area where ambush by aliens is more likely. Supplies of health and ammo will re-spawn in this second area.

In this mode one player is selected to become the Predator Hunter, the rest of the players take the role of the Marine prey. The Hunter must use the Predator’s stealth abilities and advanced equipment to pick off the prey and score points. The Marines will need to defend themselves from this threat and if possible, to kill the Hunter.

Species Death Match pits a Marine team, Alien team and Predator team against each other in a race to get the most kills within the set time limit or to reach the target score before any of the other teams.

In Domination two teams fight for ownership of Control Points around the level. Owning a Control Point gives the team a small and steady, stream of points. The more Control Points owned, the more that team scores. A team will win when their score has reached 100 points.
