Aliens: Colonial Marines "Bug Hunt" DLC Revealed?

The Official Xbox Magazine notes a photo on The Gearbox Software Forums of a Wal-Mart ad promoting new Bug Hunt DLC for Aliens: Colonial Marines, calling this a "$14.99 value," though not indicating what, if anything this will actually cost. It says this is due via download on March 19th, and offers the following description: "Team up with your friends to take on waves of increasingly difficult enemies in an all new game mode." Thanks VG247.

Honestly, FFS. I haven't heard 1 goddamn thing about "Horde Mode" Until today.

You must have missed the recent mentions at IGN, Destructoid, and Game Informer. A direct quote: "Survival pits four Colonial Marines against unrelenting waves of xenomorphs. It's possibly the best implementation of a horde-like mode we've seen in a long time."

Now one of two things happened. Either the horde mode existed as part of the game and was cut in the last few months to be sold as DLC. Or every website and magazine that reported on it lied about it ever existing in the first place. In addition Sega and Gearbox never bothered to correct them.

This DLC is called Bug Hunt... Not Survival. From what I recall Survival is also in the game but it's yet another Player vs Player mode, where the Marines have to play defense and the Aliens are on the attack, much like the old Unreal Tournament "Assault" Game mode. So... yeah... Survival and Bug Hunt are completely different... All of the Competative Modes have been gone over and have Trailers. Survival has one, it shows it as a Marines Hunker Down game mode, and lists the Xeno objective simply as "Kill" before the Marines survival timer is done.

So you have.
Story Coop: 4 Players
Deathmatch: 6 on 6
Survival: Marines survive a timer while Xeno's try to eliminate.
Escape: 4 on 4 Marines try to get to an Evac.

Bug Hunt: DLC
