There's still no official release date for Sega's Aliens vs. Predator game (everything still basically says "February 2010"), but that hasn't stopped them from releasing lots of trailers and promotional materials in the past few months. If you jump past the break you'll find the latest--one full minute of death scenes that Sega's calling the "Kill Moves" trailer. If nothing else, it appears as though Aliens vs. Predator should please fans of graphic violence (like me!)

I don't want to spoil any of the carnage, so I'll let you discover the joys of this clip on your own. AVP will put players in the role of space marines, Aliens, and the galaxy's most fearsome hunters, the Predator. It's a first person experience with shooting, stealth, and several other gameplay elements that will hopefully coalesce into a very satisfying whole. Lance Henriksen is even back as Karl Bishop Weyland (a descendant of his character in the first Alien vs. Predator film).

Generally speaking, licensed games aren't very good--but let's all cross our fingers and hope that this title bucks the trend. If nothing else, the gore alone should make it worth a look. Aliens vs. Predator will be out sometime next month for the PC, Playstation 3, and Xbox 360. Gamers can score a standard version of the title, or go all-out for this deluxe collector's set.
