Why do the Xenos have red blood?

Admittedly, I don't know much about the game aside from what I saw in GameSpot's E3 video. But I couldn't help but notice that all the xenomorphs that were being shot up had regular ol' red blood. I thought they had green, acid-like blood.

They do. If this is true, I may not get this game.

Is this the video you were referring to?


If so, I see the regular green acid blood. In every video I've seen for this game it was the same green blood. Maybe you are confused because you see red blood spray out when the Xeno hits the marine.

After watching it again, you are right. Still though, their blood, unless you're specifically looking for it, is very hard to notice. Well, for me it was.

it's easier to notice when the Xenomorph isn't right on top of he guy hitting him. You can see when he shoots a few with the pulse rifle they bleed good old green acid. It just isn't a lot of blood coming out of them until they die.

I remember seeing an earlier build of the game where the acid was barely noticeable and they were still using hit markers. It's much brighter and obvious now. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=g0ChHiN6ndQ

Predators have the green glowing blood, I thought Alien Blood was clear, like hydrochloric acid.

Xeno blood was always a light green color, never clear.

Predator blood was always a light neon green. Alien blood is usually a darker green.
