Hey, maybe you haven’t been keeping up on current events, but Sega have today released the box art for the forthcoming Aliens game, Colonial Marines. It may have been delayed by a good six months or so, but that hasn’t stopped Sega teasing us with various trailers and images.
“Today we are excited to reveal the pack fronts for SEGA’s highly anticipated Aliens: Colonial Marines™, featuring you and your friends as the ultimate badasses against the deadliest killers in the galaxy.
In partnership with Twentieth Century Fox Consumer Products and developed by critically acclaimed studio Gearbox Software, Aliens: Colonial Marines will bring new levels of bone-chilling suspense and adrenaline-filled action to the renowned franchise. The game pits players against the universe’s ultimate alien killing machines, the Xenomorphs, in claustrophobic environments guaranteed to produce blood curdling thrills that the movie is renowned for.
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.”
Aliens Colonial Marines is released Autumn 2012 on PC, PS3 and 360.
