Gamescom 2011 is currently taking place and SEGA has released a brand new batch of screenshots from Aliens: Colonial Marines. Due out in 2012, Aliens: Colonial Marines is a first person shooter developed by Gearbox Software (Borderlands) for the PC, Xbox 360, and PlayStation 3.

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.
