De preview is vrij uitgebreid en bevat naast nieuwe screenshots veel quotes van de ontwikkelaars. Het spel beloofd weer lekker creepy te worden met veel nieuwe opties. The power of Monolith's LithTech engine is certainly one of the most dramatic changes. The original Aliens Versus Predator still holds up thanks to the varied gameplay for the different races, but the engine looks awful compared to more recent first person shooters. A simple walk through some of the incomplete levels in Aliens Versus Predator 2 shows some of what LithTech will deliver: more detailed character models with higher poly counts, dynamic lighting effects, wide-open outdoor areas with foliage, and explosions and water that aren't clunky polygonal tricks. Westwater stands at the edge of a deep pool with water dripping from pipes along the ceiling. Remember the "rain chamber" where Harry Dean Stanton was killed in Alien? Remember when Newt is dropped into a shoulder-high pool of dark water in Aliens? Remember the underwater sequence in Alien Resurrection? LithTech can do all that.Je kan meer over Aliens, Marines en Predators lezen bij Computer Games Online
