Play The Sequel To Aliens In 2012?

A big thanks to Kotaku for the heads up on this new trailer for the upcoming 2012 spring release, Aliens: Colonial Marines! As Kotaku reports Sega and Gearbox Software (Borderlands) in partnership with 20th Century Fox are claiming this game is a “true sequel to James Camerson’s classic Aliens.”

I know this is just a teaser but they certainly have captured my attention! It certainly has at the very least a bit of the feel of the James Cameron movie.

UPDATE: At the 24 second mark in the above video there is an IP Address you can type in which will bring you to a Login page, after verifying your age you can watch the same clip…with some additional game play footage!

    Although it is mostly typing and text, I already like the trailer more than I enjoyed Alien3 and Alien Resurrection. I’m hoping the game is excellent, and that it leads to another decent Alien movie. As long as I’m dreaming, the movie should be directed by Ridley Scott or James Cameron.

  2. Vinvectrex, remember that Ridley Scott is working on a new sci-fi movie that somehow ties into the Alien universe. :)
