Gearbox breaks silence on Alien FPS

Gearbox Software has broken silence on its Alien first-person shooter it's working on for Sega.

Speaking to Gamereactor briefly about the game recently, the developer's big cheese Randy Pitchford revealed that players will strap on the bootsof a Colonial Marine, with the storyline playing out from the Colonial Marines' perspective.

That's all the beans that have been spilled for now, but Sega has said previously of the Alien FPS that it "will retain the atmospheric look and feel of the original films while leveraging next-generation technology to create an entirely new interactive Alien experience."

It's not expected to be released until 2009, where it'll appear on PC, Xbox 360 and PS3.

Sega also has an Alien RPG in the pipeline, development of which is being handled by KOTOR II and Neverwinter Nights 2 developer Obsidian Entertainment.
