The SEGA Blog now offers a new trailer of the alien hive from Aliens: Colonial Marines, showing how this environment is realized in the game, contrasting their concept art with the finished level. Word is: "The Alien Hive is a dark, imposing place of fear you won’t soon forget. Bring your friends and enter the hive in Aliens: Colonial Marines on February 12, 2013."

The problem with Aliens for me, is that the world of it is so narrow, the surprise of discovering a person in a cocoon or seeing a chest burst only works the first time and each game seem to use that as their main set piece.
But I have enjoyed a number of books set in the Aliens universe, so I hope they can make a fantastic story happen, instead of just trying to surprise us the same way as the movies did.
I wished they would use NS idea for Aliens theme and have aliens vs. marines. There was a DOS version, but it didn't last.
