Fifteen years ago, the best Alien versus Predator game ever was released. Featuring three separate campaigns for humans, Aliens, and Predators, it was mostly known for the fast paced multiplayer death matches that made the most of the abilities of the various classes. The 2010 re-release of that game, Aliens versus Predator Classic 2000 is currently free on GoG.com.
The give away is part of GoG’s plan to get people to sign up for the initial beta test of its own DRM-free online gaming platform. Those who want the game will have to provide an email to sign up for the testing, and will receive a download code for the game in a few days.
This also means that GoG is finally ready to begin showing the world what GoG Galaxy looks like, and whether it will be a worthy competitor for Valve’s Steam. CD Projekt, the team behind GoG and GoG Galaxy, has promised cross platform play across both Origin and Steam for game bought through their platform. Joining the beta test will be worth seeing just how this works, as AvP Classic 2000 is also already available on Steam.
With that being said, CD Projekt should really just finish The Witcher 3 before thinking about anything else. The offer only lasts until 10pm GMT on 17 October; which is about 6am on Friday local time.
