So Aliens: Colonial Marines is nearly upon us, being all set to slowly descend from the ceiling, whipping its bladed tail in your direction on Tuesday the 12th of February. To fully prepare yourself for the onslaught, have a look at the game’s cinematic CG trailer. Set to the sounds of Clint Mansell’s excellent Moon score, it tells you everything you need to know about life in the Corps, by way of a whole lot death, devastation, and neatly delivered explosive payback.
It’s going to be a tough life in the USCMC, but it’s going to a damnably rewarding one too. Because there’s nothing in life more rewarding than facing off against a large, slavering biomechanical beastie and detonating its exoskull right across the wall.
