How long have we waited for Aliens: Colonial Marines? The game was first announced in 2006 and since then we’ve had screenshots, news and delay after delay after delay until finally, it’s 2012 release date was pushed back into 2013. I’d half expected developers, Gearbox, to turn around and say “Well, Feb 12th isn’t going to work for us either so you’ll see the game in 2014″ but thankfully it still seems like everything is still on track.
This new trailer gives us a look at the story of Aliens: Colonial Marines. The game is a “sequel” to Aliens and follows another Marine unit which has been dispatched to find out what happened to the Sulaco (and in a strange nod to Alien 3, they point out that it was last seen over Fury 161) and it seems like Corp Hicks may be alive… or at the very least will have left some distress calls for you (which is made all the better as Michale Biehn is reprising one of his most iconic roles for the game).
Check out the trailer for Aliens: Colonial Marines below:
In Aliens: Colonial Marines, players are part of a United States Colonial Marine squad and must prepare to face an Aliens assault more intense and horrific than ever before. Players must destroy the enemy with classic Aliens weaponry ranging from pulse rifles to flamethrowers as well as brand-new equipment.
Aliens: Colonial Marines features a story driven single-player mode and a four player co-op mode allowing players to share the chilling experience with three friends. In co-op mode, each player assumes the persona of a United States Colonial Marine and have a distinct role to play in the completion of every mission.
Come on Feb 12th, hurry up and get here before your release date gets pushed back again! I really want to crack out my shotgun, which I like to keep handy… for close encounters (I’d apologise but it really had to be done).
Are you excited to return to LV426? Think this game will be worth the wait? Let us know in the comments section.
