Aliens vs. Predator is a science fiction first-person shooter video game, developed by Rebellion Developments, the team behind the 1999 original PC game, and published by Sega for Microsoft Windows, the PlayStation 3 and the Xbox 360. The game is based on the Alien vs. Predator franchise, a combination of the characters and creatures of the Alien franchise and the Predator franchise. There are three campaigns in the game, one for each race/faction (the Predators, the Aliens and the Colonial Marines), that, while separate in terms of individual plot and gameplay, form one overarching storyline.

 

Following the storyline of the campaign modes comes the multiplayer aspect of the game. In this Multiplayer section of the game, players face off in various different gametypes in various different ways.

Aliens vs. Predator is an extremely intensive game and most of the time we see cards struggle to hit the 60 FPS average we aim for. While the HD 6870 is right on the edge of getting the performance we need at 1680 x 1050, the XFX Black Edition with its increased clocks is able to break it.

 

When we see these little barriers broken, we understand why you would buy a pre overclocked card.
