Sierra Entertainment and Fox Interactive Announce Aliens versus Predator 2: Primal Hunt Expansion Pack

 

"THE SAGA BEGINS WITH PRIMAL HUNT
Sierra Entertainment and Fox Interactive Announce Aliens versus Predator 2: Primal Hunt Expansion Pack

Los Angeles, CA – April 8, 2002 – The saga continues as Sierra Entertainment™ and Fox Interactive™ announced today the development of the Aliens versus Predator? 2: Primal Hunt expansion pack. Aliens versus Predator 2: Primal Hunt continues the nail-biting terror and suspense from the award-winning Aliens versus Predator? 2. With all new single-player and multi-player levels, weapons, and new player characters, this original interlocking story is an all out battle of three of the deadliest species in the universe as the Aliens versus Predator 2 saga begins.

Primal Hunt, developed by Third Law Interactive, has the Predalien and Predator stories moving back 500 years prior to the events of Aliens versus Predator 2. Before the humans set up the research facility on Planet LV1201, Predators frequented the planet for the sole purpose to hunt Aliens. On a routine hunt, a Predator stumbles upon ancient Pilot ruins and discovers an Artifact of great power that, as legend has it, controls Aliens and keeps them at bay. That same fateful day an accident causes our hero Predator to become trapped in a stasis field. 500 years later, he is discovered and inadvertently revived by a human named Dunya who is trying to retrieve the Artifact for the mercenaries she works for. As the Predator secretly follows her back to base, he unknowingly allows Aliens access to the human facilities. While the Aliens wreak havoc, a lone Predalien searches out the Artifact to try to destroy it before it becomes active again.

As this terrifying story begins to unfold, players become one of the three heroic and deadly characters that are all fully prepared to do what it takes to take ownership of this powerful and sought after artifact. Choose to play as the Predator that becomes trapped in stasis only to awaken 500 years later, the human corporate mercenary, Dunya, or as the Predalien, a twisted hybrid of Alien and Predator.
