New Updated PS3 Aliens Vs Predator Demo Now Live

February 12, 2010 Written by Zak Islam

PlayStation 3 users have had a rough time with the AvP demo recently. Now, SEGA and Rebellion have announced that an updated version of the Aliens Vs Predator demo is looking to sort out the problems.

A new, updated version of the Aliens Vs Predator multiplayer demo is now available via the PS Store. The original demo, which was riddled with problems, will not be functioning any more.

The firm apologized to PS3 gamers regarding the issues.

SEGA Europe’s Gary Knight stated:

We are confident that the matchmaking issue has been fixed with this new demo and we will be monitoring community activity closely over the coming days to ensure that it has been fully resolved. We would like to thank the community for all of their valuable feedback and continued patience.

Jason Kingsley, CEO of Rebellion clarified the reasoning behind the choice of a Deathmatch mode for the demo of the shooter.

We chose Deathmatch as the mode for the demo as it’s very familiar to all FPS gamers and minimizes restrictions on players while they are getting to grips with the controls of each of the three playable species. We have plenty of new modes in the game and players only have to wait a matter of days before they can play them when the game launches.

If you want to know how your demo is old, Sega’s released an article explaining how. Aliens vs. Predator arrives on February 16 for North America and February 19 for Europe.
