If you were at NYCC last week or E3 before that, hopefully you had the chance to check out the life-size power loader Gearbox was showing off, along with playable versions of Aliens: Colonial Marines. We only have four months to go until the release of the game and have been given a couple of new screenshots to share.
"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.”
Gearbox Software is currently developing Aliens: Colonial Marines for the Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, and PC, with an official release date of February 12th, 2013. A Wii U version is also in development, but no release date has been announced. Catch up on our previous coverage with the following articles:
