SEGA Replacing Damaged Aliens

Despite mixed reviews some gamers are still dedicated to blasting xenomorphs, keeping spinal trophies and climbing on walls in Rebellion’s latest entry in the Aliens Vs. Predator series.

Some gamers who picked up the limited Hunter Edition are finding that their Facehugger models aren’t in fighting condition. In these cases the tails (a vital part of the creature, as any Alien fan knows) are being found damaged in the boxes.

A similar situation occurred with the limited edition release of the original Bioshock. The package came with a hand-painted acrylic Big Daddy figurine, many of which ended up with damaged drill tips due to handling during shipping. To remedy this 2K sent out replacement figurines as well as giving gamers who had to wait for them a free digital artbook.

SEGA is taking the same approach with regards to the Facehugger fiasco and have already set up a website where a replacement can be ordered.

Buyers can enjoy the bonus multiplayer maps, Weyland-Yutani patch, mini-novel and 3D postcard that came with the Hunter Edition.

AvP was released for the Xbox 360, PS3 and PC on February 16 and retails for $59.99 USD (Standard Edition) or $99.99 USD (Hunter Edition, if you can find one). The game features 3 full campaigns: Marine, Alien and Predator; along with online multiplayer. AvP was developed by Rebellion and published by SEGA.
