I already have it on Steam, but I'd love to have it DRM free. Lost my AvP Gold copy years ago.

The Sale thread is for good deals on any game that people on this forum would want to play. I think free counts as a pretty good deal ;)

I've been sort of meaning to look at this at some stage so when it became free it was an instant grab. Now I just hope there isn't some clause somewhere that says I need to actually use Galaxy or anything like that.

Heh, I also thought that there might be some catch in that :)

But anyway, AvP is one of my favourites, played it a lot back in early-mid 2000s. It has huge replay value (single-player I mean; haven't tried multiplayer), unlockable levels, unlockable "cheat modes" (which are essentially quite wacky single-player mode mutators), and actually very balanced gameplay (at least, it seemed balanced to me). The game also may get scary sometimes, due to the clever use of (lack of) lighting and rapidly moving aliens.

When I had nearly every mode unlocked and all campaigns completed, I would play the skirmish mode which is lots of very frantic action and lots of fun. You play on multiplayer maps with endless waves of aliens coming after you. Players and items respawn, playing time per map can be set to a certain limit. You can play either as a regular Marine (all weapons), a specific class of Marine (you can only use one type of weapon plus a pistol, but your start with that weapon), or a Predator.

I fancy MP is equally lots of fun in this. There are quite a few different modes IIRC.

I don't have my key yet either.

I have a feeling the reason why they chose AvP as the game for this is BECAUSE it has good multiplayer.

I got mine but GOG are saying that they expect to take until Tuesday before they are all out.

Frightfan: Should we wait until GT is persuaded to release the entire Blood source code?

Matt Saettler: Don't know about the Blood source from lith. I doubt they'll release it.

Frightfan: [Jason Hall] already said he would if it were up to him, but it isn't - it's GTI's game now.

Matt Saettler: Jace is wrong. I'm the one that negotiated the contracts. Jace probably doesn't even know what's really in them....

I can't believed I missed this. I've been wanting to buy this game for 3 years and I see this thread and think: ''tomorrow i'll sign up.'' Then I remember it way too late. -.-

When this game came out it was so much fun. It still has an awesome ambient to this day.
I'm pretty sure that because of this game and it's sequel, they came up with the idea to make the avp movies which sadly sucked major ass.
If this game would get an HD remake, I would be extremely if it maintained the gameplay mechanic and sound effects intact while just using an engine like ue4 and new assets.

AvP has been around longer than the video games (of which there are more than the three FPS's). It already had a following.

This is like a dream come true in a way. I bought AVP 1 & 2 years after AVP1 multiplayer had died and wished I could play multiplayer, and here's my chance years later.

Loved both 2 games immensely and still have my copies. Maybe I'll finally get around to finishing the Human campaign on AVP 1, only one I was too freaked out to finish.

played a couple of games yesterday it was really fun was a few lobbies there, the only two problems I see right now is getting into lobbies sometimes it doesn't let me in and the other is connected when it kicks me out of the game, the game is still fun though a must get game :)

Flares are very useful when playing as the Marine. You have unlimited supply, but only four lit flares can be placed in a level at any time.
