There were three different demos released for the game before it was released, a seperate demo for each of the three species.
Banned in Germany for extreme violence.
Unlike most First person Shooters at the time, Aliens vs. Predator
uses a peer to peer system for multiplayer instead of a client / server system. This particularity has been known to cause quite a lot of problem with online gaming, even if the game played fine on a LAN.
The game's system for the predator's multiple vision modes, where they can see humans or aliens but not both at the same time, was eventually adopted into the feature film Alien vs. Predator
