Aliens: Colonial Marines coming 2012
Today SEGA announced Aliens: Colonial Marines for xbox 360, PC and PS3. The game will be published by SEGA and will be developed by Gearbox Software (who have games like Borderlands and reviving Duke Nukem Forever to their name) and with 20th Century Fox . The game will be at E3 for a first look.
In the press release Randy Pitchford, president of Gearbox software said:
“To Gearbox Software and its peers throughout the industry, ALIENS is one of the most influential science fiction properties of all time,” “Aliens: Colonial Marines, designed as an interactive successor to the landmark films from Twentieth Century Fox, is a dream project about which our studio is deeply committed and passionate.”
Also a description of the game was also given:
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 Marinesfeatures 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.
But of course an announcement wouldn’t be complete with a little teaser trailer so here is the Aliens: Colonial Marines Teaser:
Aliens: Colonial Marines is due Spring 2012 on PS3, Xbox 360 and PC.
