Hey folks, looking over some of these forums and I see a lot of speculation. So I wanted to shed some light so people know exactly what top expect from this game.

1 - The game is coming to the end of the testing phase and we have played the hell out of it. I can say two things. A: UBER FUN! B: UBER different from ALIEN(But allow me to explain that one before you panic.see point #4)

2 - The game focuses on the first two films Predator 1&2 only

3 - Each game allows you to play one of two ways.

4 - You can play as the humans from both films and you can play as the Predators. Here is what that means. For Predator, you can play the co-op version the same as you did in ALIEN. You will recruit the same way, scan and attack the same way. There are objectives and everything feels just right. When you play as the "Predators", Plural, each player assumes the role of a predator hunting for the most honor (Vp's). This mode is full PVP.

5 - The second film plays the same way

6 - Once you are done playing this way, which is going to take a very long time to get through the content, feel free to take that Predator Deck and put it in the ALIEN game or vice-verse, because these two games are 100% compatible.

7 - You now have the payoff.....devil

Man, I've been waiting for a purely PvP version of Legendary. But I wanted it for Marvel!

But will there be booster packs?


Just F'n with you man, thanks for the info.

With it just coming to the end of the testing phase are you still anticipating a Gencon release?

Some previews have indicated that there is a way to play PVP with players as both humans and predator(s). Is that not the case?

I'm not too big on the fact that half the game is PVP, since I love Alien so much because it is purely cooperative...but what the hey, I'll probably buy it anyway.

No one outside of UD has seen this, so I doubt those rumors are true... Also, they just are not true.

Will you be running a similar Win-a-box event at Gen Con for Predators like last year (for ALIENS)?

If so, the missus and I might need to squat over there again. \Ha. So many games were lost on ALIENS last year, sadly never won a box in all our tries. The dice just didn't roll in our favor.

Brenzor I only play solo games and was wondering if the PVP part of the game could also be played solo or is it only for multiple players?

Damn, was really hoping the Predator version was full co-op also. Guess this makes much more thematic sense though.

Any chance this will be easier to sort than Alien was? The sorting was almost as tense and scary as the game.

Awesome. Praying for a 2015 Euro release. If not it'll still be an insta buy for me. Still playing the heck out of Alien.
