It would be great is Brenzor or someone could answer this question, just something I've been thinking about. Does UDE have access to the FULL Alien/Predator mythology, or just the films? Can we expect elements from the various comics, novelizations and video games as well? Is Prometheus material legally available for this game? Just curious, I'm a big Alien universe fan. I can't wait for this game!

Good, question. I'm guessing that FOX owns the rights to all of that, I suppose it would depend on what deal they have been given and what of the films it includes or whether that extends to comics etc.

X-wing minitures has started to plunder the expanded universe and that is also a fox series so there may be hope.

Fox merely distributed the Star Wars films prior to the Disney buyout. I'm assuming FFG has a deal with Disney, which owns everything Star Wars. I'm not sure who owns the right to the licensed characters from, say, the Alien/Predator Dark Horse comics or novelizations.

I know that for the AvP Miniatures Game that Prodos is producing, they had the rights to all the Alien, Predator, and AvP films, all the related comics, novels, and video games, but not Prometheus or any of it's related stuff - Fox was treating it as a separate franchise for licensing purposes. Chances are UDE will have a similar deal with this game (although that said, I can't really imagine to much EU material making it's way into the base game for this, even as much fun as Herk Mondo would inevitably be).

We have a great relationship with Fox and as such they have pulled back the curtain and allowed access to the universe that is ALIEN, not just movies.

OK, let's just cut the original series off at Alien 3 (at most) alright? Alien 4 was crap and Prometheus was TOTAL crap...

As far as the Aliens vs. Predator off-shoot series movies...well...maybe...

Whatever the execution of those films were, I still think various bits of mythology that they added were intriguing.

I hope they add all the elements from Alien, Aliens vs Predator, Predator and Prometheus love those movies and lore.
