The star-crossed Aliens
franchise has had more false starts this generation than Usain Bolt. Aliens vs. Predator
failed to meet expectations, but with Gearbox Software at the helm, Aliens: Colonial Marines
may be the success that SEGA has been expecting out of this license. Despite delays
this year, Aliens: Colonial Marines
is due for release this Fall and if the multiplayer is anything like this 5 minute video, it will be a great tribute to a classic sci-fi series.
I especially enjoyed the segment starting just after the 2 minute mark. If you can not listen to a video with sound, it's still riveting, but those tense moments just before an ambush are a world away from your standard deathmatch.
If you want more, it was a few months ago that we showcased the Contact trailer
, so you're forgiven for forgetting about this game. Aliens: Colonial Marines
will hopefully be available late Fall 2012.
