Sega has announced that Gearbox’s upcoming Xenomorphtastic first-person shooter Aliens: Colonial Marines will be hitting store shelves on February 12. At least, for the 360, PC, and PS3—the Wii U version is slated to ship “at a later time.” As a member of the US Colonial Marines, players will square off with Giger’s babies in single player as well as co-op and versus multiplayer.
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 unspeakable 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, weapons inspired by the film series and is designed to provide an exhilarating and engaging new chapter in the Aliens universe.
