Aliens: Colonial Marines will be getting four downloadable content packs beginning in March with the Bug Hunt pack, Sega announced on the company blog.

Sega says four downloadable add-on packs are currently in development for the upcoming first-person shooter based on the Aliens movie franchise.

Bug Hunt, which will release in March and be the first DLC launched for the game, will bring a new multiplayer cooperative mode to Aliens: Colonial Marines. In the DLC, players will be facing off against waves of enemies, which become more strong as players advance through the mode. Bug Hunt will also include three new maps based on environments fans of the Aliens films will recognize.

No exact release date for Bug Hunt has been announced. The remaining three content packs are expected to arrive by the end of August.

In addition to the DLC, Sega announced an Aliens: Colonial Marines Season Pass will be available for gamers, giving players access to all four content packs at one price. The Season Pass will be priced at $29.99 or 2400 Microsoft Points, providing a 40 percent discount of the price of purchasing all bonus packs individually. It is available for purchase now for PC via Steam and will soon be available for Xbox 360 via Xbox Live and PlayStation 3 via the PlayStation Network.

No exact pricing details were given for Bug Hunt or each individual DLC for the game. However, the announcement from Sega suggests the price for each add-on will be $12.49 or 1000 Microsoft Points.

Aliens: Colonial Marines, developed by Gearbox Software, is set to release Feb. 12 for Xbox 360, PS3 and Windows PC. A Wii U version of the game is expected to be released in March. Sega did not announce if the DLC will be available for the Wii U.
