...the all-new Aliens vs. Predator allows players to take the role of three infamous species: Colonial Marines, Predators and Aliens. The game will feature a unique three-way online multiplayer experience, allowing gamers to battle for survival and the right to be crowned the deadliest species in the galaxy. Each race will also have its own distinct action-packed single-player campaign mode, with a storyline that cleverly interweaves with the other two species’ paths.
Set on planet BG-386; a human colonist mining group discovers an ancient pyramid containing a dark and horrible secret. Across the galaxy, a race of warriors is alerted to the discovery of their pyramid and a hunting party is dispatched to ensure that it remains sealed at all costs. Deep inside the ruined pyramid meanwhile, nature’s deadliest species awakes from centuries of hibernation intent on finding new prey.
The Colonial Marine’s story is an incredible fight against all odds from horrors lurking in the dark. Surrounded on all sides yet armed to the teeth, the Colonial Marine represents humanity’s last stand with the firepower to fight back.
As the Alien, players will discover what it’s like to be the scariest, most murderous creature in the universe, with the ability to traverse any surface at lightning speed in order to get close enough to unleash its deadly claws, tail and teeth.
A master of the hunt, the Predator grants the player an arsenal of exotic weaponry with which to stalk from the shadows. Earn the greatest honor by ambushing prey up-close, before butchering them for a gory trophy kill.

Sega's Still Making At Least One Aliens Game
by Brad Shoemaker on
See here, some details and a seriously brief trailer for Aliens vs. Predator.
While the future of both Gearbox's Aliens: Colonial Marines and Obisidian's as-yet untitled Aliens RPG has been in some doubt the last few months, Sega is definitely still moving ahead on at least one new Aliens game, called (stop me if you've heard this one before) Aliens vs. Predator. Here's a new teaser trailer that shows almost nothing.
The game is being made by Rogue Warrior developer Rebellion, "by the team responsible for the original 1999 PC classic." Here's some more details provided by Sega.
I was way more interested in those other two Aliens games, but you know, these screenshots don't look half bad. We're seeing the game at E3, so keep an eye out for more.
