Aliens versus Predator 2: Primal Hunt is a 2002 expansion pack for the 2001 video game Aliens versus Predator 2, developed by Third Law Interactive and published by Sierra Entertainment and Fox Interactive for the PC. It is a prequel to the main game, primarily taking place on LV-1201 some five weeks before the events of Aliens versus Predator 2, and establishes background for many of the plot points in the latter. Several characters from the main game make a return.
