Aliens: Colonial Marines in Spring

SEGA and Gearbox announce a spring 2012 release window for Aliens: Colonial Marines, the upcoming first-person shooter based on the Alien/Aliens film franchise. This confirms the rumor that the game would not be released this year, in spite of a little misdirection. The news is accompanied by this piece of art from the game, as well as its E3 trailer, which includes no gameplay footage, but sets the story with some text on a virtual monitor and some dialog, concluding with an ominous cinematic. Here's a bit on the game's setting from the announcement:

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.

The game ties directly with Aliens.

I read a few years ago how they even got in touch with Kodak so they could reproduce the look of the film grain and color saturation (or something like that) from Aliens as closely as possible.

Really hoping this turns out good.

Me too, im really looking forward to this game. love the Aliens movie, and a game based off it is perfect. Hopefully the games Coop will be great too.

I wonder if they are going to forgo what happened to the Sulaco in the movie and say this is the new starting point for the game. I didnt care for that movie or how they killed off the rest of the crew.

It will be interesting to see how this one transpires and how you end up on a new colony defending it. And how they explain what has happned to Hicks and Ripply.


BTW, if you had read the Aliens book, you would know that Ripley found Burke incased on the wall and begging her to kill him. What she did was give him a grenade and walks away. Don’t think Burke will be making any appearances.
