Acheron currently aims to successfully replace the EU handheld weaponry and vehicles by that of the US Colonial Marine Corps. The first stage of the development is completed by 13%. You check the progress on the spreadsheet to get some idea of when the first release might come.

Acheron

Development team

  • Frosty98B - modeller, basic-texture artist
  • General_Bradly - vehicle exporter
  • Anthony817 - universal champ
  • Kiborg_UA - weapon exporter
  • NinjaTheCat - sound and music designer
  • Pe†eR-KuN - improved-texture artist
  • We're looking for a voice actor for Colonial Marines' voice messages and a weapon animator

Possible future goals include

  • 'Xenomorph' faction
  • Playable Alien Queen
  • Playable Xenomorph Drone and Warrior
  • Map(s) taking place in the Hadley's Hope complex

We'd love to include these among the features of the version that's currently being developed but we'd like not to make the mod too ambitious.

If you have any ideas/suggestions about the mod, please, feel free to let us know. Any help is much much appreciated.


Please, track the mod for future updates to make sure you're not gonna miss anything.

If you're interested in helping the mod, please send me a PM. We're currently looking for people who can export weapons (especially handheld) or vehicles, make animations, sounds or textures.

Thank you for your attention! :)

A big thanks to DARKSTAR from the Global AVP for mentioning Acheron in this article: Globalavp.com.
Be sure to check the website out if you're interested in the Alien, Predator or AVP universe! :)

Have you thought about adding in Weapons from Alien Vs Predator & Aliens: Colonial Marines?

I know A:CM was pretty trash, but I don't think it be a bad Idea to bring over some of their Weapons into this.

We sure did. The first version (divided into three releases) should be based off the movie but we already discussed some new content from the expanded universe that could appear in the next release (including new maps from various comics, weapons and vehicles from the USCM technical manual and possibly the games you mentioned). Although I'd like not to promise anything as we can't be sure how far we'll get with the development.

This looks really great, I hope SEGA, 20th Centuary Fox, Or Gearbox doesn't C&D this.

Thank you! ;) So far we've made everything from scratch, it has absolutely nothing to do with the Gearbox/SEGA's game. It's only inspired by the movie so the Fox could be the one but remember that's it's a free mod, we aren't getting money for using their property.

Thanks very much, bud! Actually with some extra luck there will probably be no need for WY mercs and instead a xenomorph faction will appear. We'll see...

How will the Xenos even operate in this mod? Just a friendly question.

That's being discussed by the team, but we reckon it could be possible to make the Xenomorph's melee attacks work like how some zombie mods do with a sort of "invisible knife" sort of thing if you know what I mean. We were also discussing about how to get the mouth and tail attacks to work, the latter being the more difficult. But rest assured, we are working on it
