Aliens: Colonial Marines New Media Released

By Andrew Ogley, 4 years ago
Yesterday we reported on the latest trailer from Sega featuring multiplayer gameplay from their upcoming title Aliens: Colonial Marines. Today we have a couple of additional videos and a whole load of images including screenshots and concept art from the game.

In the first video clip, design lead for the game,John Mulkey, walks us through some of the design decisions that influenced the game, including how the team collaborated with Fox to create new Xenomorphs. Mulkey goes on to explain how they were able to use the USCM Alien Colonial Marine Technical Manual to introduce new weapons and still remain true to the Aliens canon. The clip comes in at a lengthy 7:30 minutes but does give some additional insights into the gameplay, characters, and environments.



The second clip demonstrates just how all the elements discussed in the previous video come together in the actual game.



The concept art in the bundle provides us with an idea of what the designers were aiming for and includes a collection of environment and action scenes.
