Aliens Finally Arrive Q3

  • Available on all consoles
  • Takes inspiration from movie franchise
  • Due out in September

SEGA’sA Aliens: Colonial Marines, which has been five years in development, pits players against the universe’s ultimate alien killing machines, the Xenomorphs.

“To Gearbox Software and its peers throughout the industry, Aliens is one of the most influential science fiction properties of all time,” said Randy Pitchford, President of Gearbox Software.  “Aliens: Colonial Marines, designed as an interactive successor to the landmark films from Twentieth Century Fox, is a dream project about which our studio is deeply committed and passionate.”

According to SEGA PR: “Aliens: Colonial Marines begins with an ostensibly abandoned ship, the U.S.S. Sulaco, recovered in orbit around LV-426. Players lead a group of highly trained United States Colonial Marines as they board the deserted craft to uncover the fate of the crew. They will have to fight to survive horrors and their own anxieties as they chase down the truth behind a galaxy-spanning deception that places humanity at the mercy of the most murderous and deadly species in the universe.”

Aliens: Colonial Marines features authentic environments, such as the surface of LV-426 and Hadley’s Hope, and have weapons inspired by the film series.

Aliens: Colonial Marines will be available on PlayStation 3, Xbox 360 and PC.
