Official Press Release
Dark Horse Comics is proud to announce the limited release of Alien vs. Predator: Sand Trap. This exciting, stand-alone story was written and illustrated exclusively for Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment for inclusion in the limited edition AVP Ultimate Showdown Collectors Set.
An unfortunate desert platoon gets more war than they bargained for when they unwittingly end up in the middle of a battle where the warriors are not human. The soldiers soon discover that this chaotic region has proven to be an ideal hunting ground for the Predators’ latest conquest, and even Blackwater was no match for the forces unleashed in the thrill of the game. Will the new squad fare any better than the band of brothers before them? In space, nobody can hear you scream. On Earth, it won’t matter.
In addition to AVP: Sand Trap, the AVP Ultimate Showdown Collectors Set will include every film from the Alien and Predator franchises in a two-disc version (fifteen discs total), exclusive collectible Alien and Predator figurines, and two tickets to see Aliens vs. Predator: Requiem (in theaters 12/25/07). The AVP Ultimate Showdown Collectors Set is limited to 10,000 pieces for worldwide distribution. It will be available in the U.S. on November 27, 2007, only at Best Buy. AVP: Sand Trap will not be offered for individual sale or through other retail outlets.
