Aliens: Colonial Marines Details

SEGA Reveals Details Of Upcoming Aliens: Colonial Marines finally offers details on Aliens: Colonial Marines, Gearbox Software's upcoming shooter first announced in 2006 (story) which is now expected before the end of this year. Here's the announcement, which mentions four-player co-op support, and is likely the only place Alien: Resurrection has ever been referred to in the same sentence as the Academy Awards:

LONDON AND SAN FRANCISCO (February 21st, 2008) – SEGA Europe Ltd. and SEGA of America, Inc. today revealed details of the highly anticipated squad-based first-person shooter video game, Aliens: Colonial Marines™. Licensed through an exclusive agreement with Twentieth Century Fox Licensing and Merchandising and developed by Gearbox Software, the game will be available on the Xbox 360® video game and entertainment system from Microsoft, PLAYSTATION®3 computer entertainment system and Windows-based PC in late 2008.

In Aliens: Colonial Marines, players are part of a United States Colonial Marine squad and must prepare to face an alien assault more intense and horrific than ever before. Driven by a compelling and original story penned by renowned writers Bradley Thompson and David Weddle Aliens: Colonial Marines will retain the atmospheric look and feel of the original films while leveraging next-generation technology to create an entirely new interactive Aliens experience.

Packing classic Aliens weaponry ranging from pulse rifles to flamethrowers as well as brand-new equipment and skills all within a squad-based combat system, players will become an elite United States Colonial Marine. Featuring claustrophobic environments, a brooding soundtrack, and a multitude of surprises and shocks, players will battle against menacing alien hordes in strikingly detailed levels that include the stark interiors of the abandoned Sulaco and unique environments created specifically for the game.

Aliens: Colonial Marines will feature a story driven single-player mode and an all-new four player co-op mode allowing players to share the chilling experience with three friends. In co-op mode, each player will assume the persona of a Colonial Marine and have a distinct role to play in the completion of every mission. Additionally, more multiplayer modes will be revealed later in the year that will complete the Aliens video game experience.

Since its 1979 debut, Alien and its three sequels have grossed more than $557 million worldwide, garnering numerous awards, including two Academy Awards®.

Hmm, if Brothers in Arms: Hells Highway should be releasing soon from these guys, and if they are going to also push this title out this year I don't see how they could put enough effort into this to make it a good game. Hells Highway has bee in development for about 2 years and that's a big title...

Here's hoping this is a good Aliens game...
