- As the Marine, you’ll experience a claustrophobic and terrifying experience where light is your friend, but there’s never enough. However, the United States Marine Corps are humanity’s last line of defense, and as such they are armed to the teeth with the very latest in high explosive and automatic weaponry.
....you might want to tell your modelers to stop making them look like Colonial Marines with pulse rifles ala Aliens,
then. And your writers that the point of the Marines is to deploy to anywhere more quickly then the other "lines of defense" until the Army can ass itself in with better numbers and assets. (Or the more likely solution: tell the PR guy writing this stuff to actually figure out what the hell is going on in the fiction he's supposed to be pitching.
) Then again, if this plays as awesome as it looks just from those screenies, I'll live with a little timeline/setting confusion.
What are they making this on, anyway? I thought I read awhile back that the engine was being made in-house, but this looks a helluvalot like Cryengine 2.
Here's hoping that one multiplayer mode starting out with one Alien with a zombie effect on its kills makes it in. "I haven't seen all the other players in a few seconds, let me hit tab and see if they're still here. Oh THEY'RE ALL ALIENS NOW WELL THIS IS HARDLY IDEAL OH CRAP WHAT'S MOVING AT THE CORNER OF MY SCREEN."
NOT THE BEES! NOT THE BEES THEY'RE IN MY EYES
