Sega press release:
LONDON AND SAN FRANCISCO (3rd February 2010) – SEGA® Europe Ltd. and SEGA® of America, Inc. can today reveal that an online multiplayer demo will be released for the upcoming FPS action sci-fi title, Aliens vs Predator. The demo will be released simultaneously on Xbox Live, PlayStation Network and STEAM on 4th February.
The multiplayer demo will allow gamers the chance to play as all three species – the Colonial Marine, the Predator and the Alien – and pitch their skills against each other in Deathmatch mode on Refinery, one of the game’s multiplayer maps.
“The team at Rebellion has created a truly immersive multiplayer experience with three completely different and compelling playable species. We believe that Aliens vs Predator offers gamers a unique alternative to the current FPS multiplayer games on the market, and sets a precedent for the evolution of multiplayer gaming in the genre,” said Gary Knight, European Marketing Director of SEGA Europe.
“Multiplayer was a huge part of our original AVP game back in 1999, and we’ve kept the spirit of that classic experience in creating the multiplayer for our new Aliens vs Predator. With the demo now gamers can get to grips with each of the three iconic species so they can hone their skills and be ready for when the game launches and battle commences,” said Jason Kingsley, CEO and Creative Director of Rebellion.
Aliens vs Predator allows players to take the role of each of the three infamous species; the Colonial Marine, the Predator and the Alien. Each of the three species has its very own distinct story-driven single-player campaign mode that interweaves with the campaigns of the other two species.
Aliens vs Predator also features unique 3-way online multiplayer, giving gamers the chance to pit the three species against each other in the ultimate battle for survival and for the right to be crowned the deadliest species. Aliens vs Predator has seven multiplayer modes in total: Infestation, Survivor, Predator Hunt, Domination, Deathmatch, Species Deathmatch and Mix Species Deathmatch.
Aliens vs Predator is set to be released on Xbox 360® video game and entertainment system from Microsoft, PLAYSTATION®3 computer entertainment system and PC Games For Windows on February 16th in America and February 19th in Europe.

Not to mention: "Multiplayer play will also earn you APEX funds (in-game currency), which can be used to purchase items and gear in the Single Player game". ME3's War Assets and Readiness feels. =( (10 minutes ago)
Also, this is a great way to start a conversation about Mass Effect 4, believe me when I say no one at EA or BioWare is stupid enough that they wouldn't believe someone would post this "survey/leak". (13 minutes ago)
Which is in line with BioWare, EA and most AAA games companies practice of re-using mechanics of a franchise into another. If EA/BioWare doesn't announce ME4 in Game Informer, it will be at E3 2015. (15 minutes ago)
@Moonwalker: Thanks a lot for the link!!! That really does look like an official PR game announcement statement, plus most of what it says Mass Effect 4 will have is on DA:I already. (17 minutes ago)
So this COULD be the next Mass Effect: [url] (2 Hours ago)
I simply can not get over how AWESOME that trailer of Batman vs Superman was!!!! [url] (4 Hours ago)
@Moonwalker: True. I really like it, but the story is slow burning. The dialogue misses that Frank Miller vibe which would elevate it to excellent (4 Hours ago)
