Second Developer Diary for Aliens: Colonial Marines

Gearbox Software has released a second behind-the-scenes video for Aliens: Colonial Marines. This feature is another developer diary that includes new gameplay footage and has the key members of the development team talking about expanding the world of Aliens.

“In partnership with Twentieth Century Fox Consumer Products and developed by critically acclaimed studio Gearbox Software, Aliens: Colonial Marines will bring new levels of bone-chilling suspense and adrenaline-filled action to the renowned franchise. The game pits players against the universe’s ultimate alien killing machines, the Xenomorphs, in claustrophobic environments guaranteed to produce blood-curdling thrills that the movie is renowned for.

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:
