Gone Gold - Aliens: Colonial Marines

The Gearbox Software Community Website has the news that Aliens: Colonial Marines is gold for Windows, Xbox 360, and PlayStation 3, saying the first-person shooter will launch for all three platforms on February 12th. Here's the announcement:

Exciting news -- Aliens: Colonial Marines has gone gold on PC, PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360!

When we first announced the release date for Aliens: Colonial Marines back in May 2012, Gearbox Software CEO Randy Pitchford noted that the development had progressed to the point where we could see the end and be very confident in both our vision for the game as well as our launch date.

Today, we’re proud to announce that we hit every one of those targets, with the game's gold status indicating that all parties have examined the release candidate and signed off on the code as final and suitable for manufacturing, after which the game will be shipped to retail and propped to digital networks in time for launch on PC, PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 come February 12, 2013!

Now's the time to make sure you've got your pre-order locked in as participating retailers are offering in-game bonus content -- check with your local retailers and visit this page for more details.

Stay frosty, the next chapter in the Aliens story is almost here. Will you be able to fight the fear?

I dunno about his one, I'll definatly have a wait and see approach. The one single aspect of AvP that I really liked was the COOP survival mode of the original. That one map where it started out all nice and litup but got darker and darker as the lights all got blown out by your fire, damn good nerve racking fun.

... just doesnt feel the same.

I think it's a little unfair to judge it based on footage that's almost a year before the game releases...even then I don't think it looks bad anyway.

I'm looking forward to it, even it if it's only an average game. It's nice they're not doing anything with predators in it... I love Alien/Aliens, and even the Predator movies, but AvP was always just a fanboy circle jerk of a franchise on the level of Freddy Vs. Jason. AvP misses the point of what makes both movies great, in my mind, and just turns it into another monster story.
