Trivia

1001 Video Games

Aliens Versus Predator appears in the book 1001 Video Games You Must Play Before You Die by General Editor Tony Mott.

Demos

There were three different demos released for the game before it was released, a seperate demo for each of the three species.

German Version

Banned in Germany for extreme violence.

Multiplayer

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.

Predator Vision

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.

Soundtrack

The second, "soundtrack" disc of AvP is actually an expanded version of James Horner's soundtrack for the movie Aliens. In addition to several unreleased pieces, there are also alternate and extended versions of tracks that are on the official movie soundtrack. The full listing for AvP disc 2 is:
