In Aliens vs Predator: Extinction the three fiercest species in the universe have been locked in a bloody, galaxy-spanning battle for years.
With each new encounter it seems the on-going conflict will never end. After a small unit of Colonial Marines dispatched to planet LV-742 reveals the presence of both Predators and Aliens, it is decided that the conflict must end once and for all. After years of smaller battles, there is only one clear path to total universal supremacy: war. You must now defeat your enemies to ensure the survival of your species... or face extinction.
This is the first Aliens versus Predator game created specifically for next generation consoles. A real-time strategy game, you can create and control your forces as one of three species across 21 single-player missions with 10 upgradeable combat units per species. Decide your attack strategy; order up your own custom army from a list of units, choose your upgrades from enemy detecting vision modes to devastating weapon enhancements. Each species offers unique attributes. As the Colonial Marines, you will count on your military training and the latest hi-tech weaponry from the Weyland-Yutani Corporation to save the human population of LV-742.
The Predators must use their stealth and highly evolved hunting techniques to gain the respect of the council of Ancients. Aliens will attack in hordes to incapacitate their enemies, impregnating them, and using them to evolve into the ultimate biological weapons. Players have access to a variety of units from low-end grunts to ultra-specialised warriors like the Alien Carrier (able to bring terrifying facehuggers to the battlefront), the extremely brutal and heavily armoured Military Predators or the hydraulically powered Marine Exo-Suit.
