In the darkness of uncharted space aboard the crippled colony vessel "USCSS Theseus" there is nowhere to hide, nowhere to run, and in space, everyone will hear you scream!
“The Hunt Begins” Is a fast-paced, claustrophobic, “express elevator to hell” Miniature game of combat between three of the most dangerous races in the galaxy.
Join the ranks of the brave men and women of the US Colonial Marines and arm yourself with state-of-the-art weaponry or take command of the elite cadre of Predators, an alien race of hunters that seek the finest prey to stalk, hunt, and eliminate. The darkness holds more horrors than these two adversaries… The Xenomorphs, one of the deadliest of all known alien species with the potential to destroy and eradicate all sentient life.
“The Hunt Begins” offers two challenging game modes, which can be played by one or more players. The first of which is Competitive, in which all races battle against one another in mission and objective based combat. The second is Cooperative: A fragile alliance has been drawn between the Marines and the Predators, neither of which can survive alone against the Alien threat.
The motion tracker is off the scale, The prey is approaching, and a Queen seeks fresh hosts to birth her children!
Only YOU can decide who survives the USCSS Theseus!
Second Edition features:
All models have received fresh design and looks. Characters are more dynamic now and we are introducing built-in terrain bases as well.
Second Edition of AVP contains all the patches and erratas we have collected over last year of testing and collecting feedback.
THE LAST STAND MODE
You can play with your fiends in cooperative way using The Last Stand Mode from First Edition. Aim of the game is simple - destroy Spawning Points of Xenomorphs, while Horde of Aliens is trying to do what they do best. Horde is controlled by The Game, while your brave Marines Squad or Predator Pack are controlled by players
AVP Second Edition is now in different box, in a square shape, instead of rectangular one. It will fit stacks of your favorite board games perfectly and it's much easier to handle now.
MINIATURES ARE UNICAST NOW
Biggest improvement has been done with models - you can place them on board straight from the box! No assembling required, no gluing, no cutters - just open a game and play!
PROTECTIVE FOAM INSERT FOR MODELS
After you finish playing, you can assembly the game and put models back into the box without any risk of damaging them. All this thanks to protective foam we have used for miniatures.
We have spent a lot of time improving our assets, which results in new design of tiles, we are using for a game.
