Rebellion to release the 1999 version of Aliens vs. Predator via Steam for cheap.
While pricing and a date are to be announced at a later date, the game will include the single-player mode at first, but a patch adding the multiplayer will be released later on.
“It’ll be very cheap – and it shows it’s age a little bit, but it is frightening and it is difficult,” Rebellion CEO Jason Kingsley told IGN. “We will in due course fix up the multiplayer – and we’ll make sure it’s a free download.”
Currently, the game is to be made available only through the digital download service, but the possibility of it landing on Xbox Live Arcade or PSN is a possibility.
The next-gen version of Aliens vs. Predator will have a demo released for it, and the original game is expected to be released on Steam before the new one lands February 16.
