We’ve got a new trailer from the upcoming game Aliens: Colonial Marines. Created by Gearbox, the developers of Borderlands and Brothers In Arms, this first-person shooter is steeped in the eerie, claustrophobic and terrifying atmosphere that made the Aliens films successful worldwide. You and your friends will become the most badass military outfit in the galaxy – the US Colonial Marines. It’s down to you to not just survive but wipe out the Xeno infestation. Aliens: Colonial Marines will be released February 12th on Playstation 3, Xbox 360, and PC.
Also awaiting you inside, the story trailer for Dead Space 3, hitting on February 5th.
Sure, we’ve seen our share of video games inspired by the Alien franchise. But why do we get the sense that Aliens: Colonial Marines will be “the one”? The one that impresses us and makes us feel we right there in the fight. Some game play footage that surfaced today certainly evokes that. You’ll want to check this out.
Aliens: Colonial Marines begins with an ostensibly abandoned ship, the U.S.S. Sulaco, recovered in orbit around LV-426. Players lead a group of highly trained United States Colonial Marines as they board the deserted craft to uncover the fate of the crew. They will have to fight to survive unspeakable horrors and their own anxieties as they chase down the truth behind a galaxy-spanning deception that places humanity at the mercy of the most murderous and deadly species in the universe. Aliens: Colonial Marines features authentic environments, such as the surface of LV-426 and Hadley’s Hope, weapons inspired by the film series and is designed to provide an exhilarating and engaging new chapter in the Aliens universe.
Look for it this fall.
