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.

Checking out some 3D Benchmarks, we can see performance is quite strong. In the Performance preset, it's actually faster than our Z68 boards when they're at stock. When overclocked we also see a bit of a boost which helps put it ahead of the other boards. Aliens vs. Predator performance lines up pretty much exactly how you would think.
