New Trailer Debuts for Aliens: Colonial Marines

Aliens: Colonial Marine

A new trailer for Aliens: Colonial Marines has been released by Sega and Gearbox Software in anticipation of the upcoming release. The trailer, entitled Kick Ass, shows off the game’s gruesome and moody visuals, explosive shooter combat and intense action. More than anything, though, the trailer focuses on a squad of US Colonial Marines kicking a bunch of Xenomorph ass.

The trailer acts as a sort of mission briefing with a rough speaking Marine discussing how a mission onboard the U.S.S. Sulaco went awry and a team crash landed on an alien infested environment. Players will take control of Corporal Christopher Winter as he fights off creatures from the Alien franchise with a varied arsenal.

[adsense250itp]Anyone familiar with the second installment of Ridley Scott’s sci-fi series will recognize the outfits and tools of death the marines will wield. The trailer shows off the standard assault rifles and shotguns. What’s more interesting are the weapons seen in the films. The minigun, flamethrower, welding torches, motion detectors and sentry turrets are shown helping blast holes in the Xenomorph threat. It even looks like players will get a chance to control the exosuit that Ellen Ripley used to take down the Alien queen from the film.

Without a doubt, the trailer is quite the adrenaline rush and full of enough bullets and obscenities to get anyone prepared for a slaughter. There are a few other interesting moments that do not seem to rely on as much shooting. Certainly, the times when players have to carefully navigate a room full of face-huggers will be extremely tense, not to mention getting up close and personal with the jaws of an alien. The environments in Aliens: Colonial Marines also look as equally impressive as the shooting. Dark hallways will suddenly be lit with gunfire and reveal several advancing threats.

The pedigree of Gearbox Software (and anyone who has played Borderlands 2) ensures that the first-person shooter elements of this game are going to be finely tuned. Aliens: Colonial Marines will be available on Feb. 12 for PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, and PC. A Wii U version has been announced but a release date will be revealed at a later time.
