Aliens: Colonial Marines Touts Its Survivor Mode

Aliens: Colonial Marines Touts Its Survivor Mode

Fight the Fear

Written by Matrarch on 22 November 12 at 04:35 | Credit to METAL MIN0TAUR

While there's no doubt that Sega and Gearbox's upcoming FPS, Aliens: Colonial Marines, is set to feature a solid single player campaign, what many folks are undoubtedly looking forward to is how the game will handle multiplayer. A couple months ago, we got a look at Escape Mode, an 8-player game type that puts four players in the role of Marines and the other four in the role of Xenomorphs.

Today's video highlights another MP mode, the co-op "Survivor" mode. The goal of this game type is to outlast the swarms of Xenomorphs baring down on your team. Will you be able to overcome the odds against you if you're the last man standing? Only time will tell.



Aliens: Colonial Marines is due for release on February 12th, 2013. For pre-order details, check out this trailer. You can also take a look at what's included in the Collector's Edition right here.

I hope this is better than AvP's survival was touted to be. Still enjoyable though.

looks good but there's 3 different aliens on that trailer one that rips its mouth off and magically explodes then there's the other at the end that jumps through the fire i wish game developers actually stay close to the actual film the guns on the game they have sights on the film they didn't for example the pulse rifle > http://youtu.be/T_dlAmBkr10 if they nail the atmosphere and tension for the game itll be a winner but i just get pissed of the small details that they shouldnt put in and have to change id be happy if they stayed with the nature of the films ie just have alien queen > eggs> chest buster > warrior alien. but to satifisy the mongoloid youth of today that needs sfx and explosions in your face i have doubts about this game

Matt the dragon: I agree 100%.
There will be "new kinds of aliens" in the game. This is sad imho because that will be so far from the original movie, like LV426 from Earth.
I pre-ordered the Collector's Edition nonetheless. We'll see...

Looked pretty cool. Haven't personally heard of it until now, but looks like something I might pick up.

Translating that to a video game means making certain changes to keep the gameplay entertaining and fluid. While it's not truly accurate to the movies, I'm glad weapons have sight on them. And fighting just the three types of aliens from the film (the facerape dudes, the aliens and the queen) would be boring. I'm glad they put some diversity in it, keeps it interesting (consider Left 4 Dead without special infected and just regular zombies, that'd be sleep-inducing). And if that means that it'll be slightly less true to the movies I'm down with that. It's not like they're doing major retconning or anything.

Nice trailer, I love the ending... ''Fight the fear''. I remember how I felt while playing AvP as a marine, it was pretty intense. If this game nails the atmosphere it's going to be crazy.

People need to get over the fact that the game is going to take some liberties with the movie license in order to make the game a bit more interesting and fun.

I am really looking forward to this game. I'm a bit skeptical from the other games not being mind blowing, they were fun, but not as good as i expected. But this, this is really looking promising.

Whether or not it is good, I'm still buying it. I just can't help myself.

I am more sold on this game the more I see and hear. Survival mode looks juicy, and honestly given that the Xenomorphs are adaptive creatures I can deal with a variety pack for the survival mode.

All gameplay footage. +1 selling point. So sick of trailers with insane cgi that has nothing to really do with the game. Preordered same time I did halo 4 so I am still going to keep my hands in my pocket and whistle as it's still a long wait away.

Still, might be good fun co-op wise.
