Aliens vs. Predator DLC set for March 18

March 8, 2010

Aliens vs. Predator hasn’t even been out a month yet, but that won’t deter Sega from announcing some DLC for their extraterrestrial combat simulator. It’ll come in the form of four multiplayer maps, but notice that I didn’t say “new” maps. That’s right, those of you who weren’t so damn cheap and bought the special edition of the game already have the maps. So for you cheapos who didn’t cough up the cash initially, you’ve got to throw down 560 Microsoft points or $6.99 on March 18 to obtain them.

Here’s Sega’s description of the four not-so-new maps, or “Swarm Map Pack” as they’re calling it:

“Two new multiplayer maps are for six different modes (Deathmatch, Predator Hunt,  Infestation, Species Deathmatch, Mixed Species Deathmatch and Domination) :
•    Docks: The caustic alkali waters of BG-386 put an end to Weyland-Yutani’s planned shipping activities. But this dockyard soon became an historic battleground.
•    Machine:  As well as processing exotic ores, the BG-386 Refinery provided electrical power to the colonists at Freya’s Prospect. The lights may still be on, but nobody’s home. Yet.”

“Two new Survivor maps in which up to four Marines battle to stay alive against increasing swarms of Aliens:
•    Outpost: The site of the original Weyland-Yutani colony on BG-386 was abandoned, and soon reclaimed by the planet’s voracious jungle plant life. It is now the perfect hunting ground for all manner of wildlife.
•    Hive: Deep in the heart of the Freya’s Prospect Refinery lays the Xenomorph Hive. Beware all who enter here.”
