Aliens: Colonial Marines trailer

Trailer Aaron Birch 24 Jan 2013 - 19:10

Sega’s Aliens: Colonial Marines has a new trailer, and it’s all about kicking ass…

We’re still waiting for a truly great Aliens FPS, and although Monolith’s Alien Vs Predator 2, and the more recent Alien Vs Predator from Rebellion were good, they still lacked that special something. Now it’s Sega and Gearbox’s turn to hold the motion tracker, and Aliens: Colonial Marines is looking mighty tasty.

Following on from the events of the Aliens movies, the games sees players return to the USS Sulaco and LV-426, and pits a detachment of hardcore marines versus cinema’s most recognisable alien antagonists.

This latest trailer shows off some of the hardware you’ll get to play with, including pulse rifles, smart guns, auto turrets and even robotic loader suits, and the attention to detail and authentic reproduction of the original subject matter could well be the best yet. Then again, it could also end up being all looks and no gameplay, so we’ll have to wait and see.

Aliens: Colonial Marines will be released on February 12 for Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and PC, with a Wii U version still to be confirmed.

Can't wait for this game. btw, don't judge the trailer voice over, it has been confirmed by the writer at Gearbox that this was not his doing and is not part of the in game script. It's all SEGA and their marketing's doing lol

"It's all SEGA and their marketing's doing"

God help them if this the best they have to offer in terms of marketing. That voiceover turned me right off. Ugh.

Yeah, the voiceover doesn't do it for me, but the game looks pretty damned cool, and Gearbox is definitely putting their all into this. I really hope the game is good....but we'll find out come February.

Graphics look horrendous by today's standards... is this some sort of throwback preview from 2003?

Though they did their best to hide it, the facial animations looked pretty outdated. Here's hoping they put all their efforts into other areas...

Agree. The graphics look horrible.

omg...that voice over is effing awful
