Gearbox Software has beamed in a new
gameplay trailer for Aliens: Colonial Marines, offering virtual space warriors
a preview of the screeching, acid-drooling terrors that await them aboard the
U.S.S. Sulaco next spring. Going by these latest impressions alone, Gearbox
appears to have nailed the gritty, desperate atmosphere from the films. But
then, compared to the scads of other other FPSs featuring low-lit, rundown and
alien infested spaceship environments (many of which were no doubt inspired by
the Aliens franchise) it also looks a tad...generic?
Taking place after the events of Aliens 3,
Aliens: Colonial Marines is a squad-based FPS shooter which follows four
well-armed marines as they hunt for the legendary Ellen Ripley aboard the
abandoned spaceship Sulaco. What caused the crew to disappear? What dangers
await those who enter? We're guessing Xenomorphs, Xenomorphs, and more
Aliens: Colonial Marines is on track to
wrap up its lengthy six-year development Spring 2012 when it arrives for PS3,
Xbox 360, PC and on an unconfirmed date for Wii U.
