New "Kick Ass" Aliens: Colonial Marines Trailer

Contains sweary language.

SEGA have just released a brand new trailer for Aliens: Colonial Marines. The video, which contains lots of action and hints at what might be going on in the story, at least captures the atmosphere of the movie – the sounds in particular are spot on and the aliens (and guns) look great.

We’re hoping to get our hands on the game very soon, but failing that the game’s out next month and will hopefully, finally, satisfy life-long Aliens fans with a game that lives up the film.

In the meantime, check our detailed hands-on preview and interview with the team behind the game, which highlights some of the multiplayer aspects along with our general thoughts on the adaptation. Hopefully Gearbox can carry the momentum into the full game.

    Arrgh! Why are there so many great games coming out in quick succession? Rayman Legends is a given, as is Tomb Raider but I’m still undecided whether to pick up this or Metal Gear Rising.
    I was going to give both a miss and check them out a couple of months later but, after Ninty’s Direct video yesterday, it looks like those months are going to be pretty busy too, lol.
    I sense a backlog of games somehow.

    I thought the trailer gave too much away. For instance, the turrets, why not just do a few slow fly-bys looking directly at them in a post fire status? The iconic yellow cargo rig, why not just show the marine getting strapped in and powering up? One of the first laws of horror is to not show the bad guy, keep them out of sight but make sure that the viewer is aware of the their presence, or not… This trailer makes the game look like a straight up shooter rather than a suspenseful space horror.
    Also very much looking forward to reviews of the multiplayer. True, MP is not the be all and end all but, in this generation of games it tends to be a given that an MP section will be included. I worry that MP with two tactically differing sides may make the MP unbalanced.
