Sega has released four new screenshots from Gearbox’s Aliens: Colonial Marines. The upcoming squad-based first-person shooter is scheduled to launch on February 12 for the 360, PC, and PS3, and later in 2013 for the Wii U.
Set after the events in Aliens 3, players will take on the role of Corporal Christopher Winter as he searches the U.S.S. Sulaco for Ripley. Players won’t have to battle the Xenomorph threat alone, though, as Colonial Marines is slated to support four-player online and two-player local co-op. An experience-based customization system will also reward players with new costume and gear unlocks.
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.
