Colonial Marines? Check. Industrial
spaceship interior? Check. Acid-soaked fangs and creepy tongue-mouth?
Check and check. No doubt about it, this newly revealed box art for
Aliens: Colonial Marines hits all the right notes, even if they're
notes we've heard a few times before. Check it out:
According to the latest date stamp on
Sega's official site for Aliens: Colonial Marines, the game has been
delayed to an Autumn 2012 release. In a statement to CVG, Gearbox
explained a later-than-anticipated drop date is needed in order to
get the game looking and operating at its best, saying, “We don't
want to sacrifice the creative process just for the sake of following
a blue print. We prefer to have the creative discovery shape that
blue print because our goal is to make a great game, and we are
prioritizing this goal over the previously targeted date."
Aliens: Colonial Marines takes place in
the same universe as their filmic counterparts and abandons players
aboard the derelict U.S.S. Sulaco. Spanning multiple iconic
locations, the game will see the main protagonist, Winter, and his
team of Colonial Marines tracking down Ellen Ripley and her posse
following the events of the Aliens film, eventually coming into
contact with dome-headed extraterrestrials themselves.
