Upper Deck Entertainment will add the Alien franchise to its growing line of VS. System deck building game releases this August.

Plans for the game were announced last summer (see “'VS. System' Will Add 'Firefly,' 'Predator,' 'Alien,' More”), but now Upper Deck has shared box contents and art. The release will include 200 cards of new content and original art, which cover all four Alien movies. Players can play as any of the major characters from the Alien universe or even as the deadly Xenomorphs.  The game can be played as a stand-alone or combined with an of the previously released VS. System 2 PCG products.  

Upper Deck also announced a new Alien-based expansion for Legendary Encounters for this year (see “'Deadpool,' 'Homies,' 'Shark Island,' More”).
