Love Predator? Love spines getting ripped out of cocky, armed humans? SEGA has revealed developer Rebellion has been working on it, "it's fantastic".
Rob Bartholomew, SEGA's EU brand manager, has gleefully talked up the game's "trophy kills", where a Predator "caresses the spinal cord and purrs." It's something "everyone recognises".
"It’s got to be the trophy kills on the predator," said Bartholomew on a , when asked about the best moment from Rebellion's Aliens vs Predator game.
"We’ve just been trying it out now, just before the show opens, and we’re just getting familiar with it again, and getting those trophy kills right where you rip the skull off the marines and pull their spines out afterwards and the predator kind of caresses the spinal cord and purrs," he said.
"It’s such a great moment, and it’s something that everyone recognises from the films. The guys we’ve had wondering around already are screaming that it’s fantastic and it’s kind of the money shot. So that’s the perfect kind of picture moment for me."
The game has been in development at Rebellion for nearly four years now, with SEGA showing up late to the dev cycle.
"The guys have been working on it for going on three, nearly four years now," he revealed, "Sega only recently got involved in the last sort of 12 months."
Aliens vs Predator is being released on Xbox 360, PS3 and PC in the first half of 2010.
