    About Aliens: Colonial Marines:

    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. 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.

    Some quotes from the creators:

    “I am thrilled to announce the definitive launch date for Aliens: Colonial Marines,” said Randy Pitchford, President of Gearbox Software. “Aliens: Colonial Marines is the culmination of a life-time of inspiration from the films and relentless passion and drive from the exceptionally talented development team behind the scenes.”

    “We knew this game would be incredible from the moment Gearbox began developing Aliens: Colonial Marines,” said Gary Knight, Senior Vice President of Marketing for SEGA Europe and SEGA of America. “Now that the title is in its final stretch of development, we can confidently release the exact date that gamers will finally get to experience this blockbuster thrill-ride.”

    “SEGA has a proven track record with the ALIENS franchise. ALIENS vs. PREDATOR released by SEGA in 2009 became one of their top-selling titles,” said Gary Rosenfeld, Senior Vice President for New Media for Fox Consumer Products. “We look forward to working with them and bringing an exciting new way for fans to immerse themselves in the ALIENS world.”

      Surely I can’t be the only one looking forward to play this game!? Especially with Prometheus right around the corner my Alien universe hype is through the roof! The creators of the game even talked to that movie’s director, Ridley Scott, hinting the game might have ties to that movie as well! :)

      As long as it’s not average like Rebellion’s alien vs predator,it’s still quite a while away

      Yeah I guess an 8 months wait isn’t exactly around the corner, but at least it’s not a whole year away.
      Considering how focused they are on getting the storyline right and are setting the environments up to the be true to the movies, I think this’ll be the best Alien(s) game yet. :)

      I really wanna play it, but all i got is a Wii and a Laptop (Mac) will it be on either of these? I dont think so, but i hope so.

      Before anyone says to “go out and get a PS3 or xbox, they are quite expensive especially as i dont have much time to go on them. Preferably i hope it is compatible with Mac as i use my laptop regularly, but even using the Wii still has the same problem as using a PS3 or xbox, i won’t be able to play on it much.
