LOS ANGELES (November 15, 2007) – Sierra Entertainment, a division of Vivendi Games, today announced that Aliens vs. Predator - Requiem, an action game exclusively developed for the PSP (PlayStationPortable) system, has shipped to retailers nationwide. Based on the upcoming movie from 20th Century Fox, Aliens vs. Predator – Requiem, and from the creators of the award-winning original AvP for PC, the game pits two of cinema's most popular and terrifying science fiction icons against each other.
In the Aliens vs. Predator – Requiem game, players take on the role of an elite Predator carrying an extensive arsenal of exotic weaponry and equipment. Guided by an unquenchable thirst for the hunt, players have one mission: eradicate all traces of the horrifying Alien outbreak on Earth. Players will have access to all the Predator's advanced technologies via his wrist computer, including Pred-tech/thermal vision modes and cloaking – to track, stalk and annihilate both human and Alien threats.
With a co-op multiplayer mode, players will be able to team up with a friend wirelessly to play as Predator comrades, attempting to withstand hordes of attacking Aliens.
"The Aliens vs. Predator-Requiem movie promises to provide a thrilling experience, and we are very excited to get the adrenaline pumping before the big screen battle begins with this exclusive title for the PSP system," said Pascal Brochier, president, Global Retail for Vivendi Games. "Twentieth Century Fox has been an excellent partner, and we are very proud to be giving the fans of the franchise this action-packed interactive extension of the AvP series."
Elie Dekel, executive vice president of Fox Licensing and Merchandising added, "It is exciting to see such creative use of The Aliens/Predator franchise. Sierra Entertainment has done a great job at bringing fans closer to the AVP film experience."
