The first story trailer for Gearbox Software’s claustrophobic corridor shooter, Aliens: Colonial Marines has just been revealed to the public. In it we get a glimpse behind the curtain at what players might expect when the game releases February 12th, 2013. While the story doesn’t exactly look like Shakespeare and the marine captain’s voice-over is pretty cringe-worthy, it appears that Gearbox are nailing the atmospheric side of things on the head. Environments are detailed and the infamous Xenomorphs look as creepy as ever, with all manner of spines, spikes and teeth at their disposal. All aboard the USS Solaco! Hoo-rah!
Aliens: Colonial Marines is currently set for release on February 12th, 2013 for PC, Playstation 3, Xbox 360 and the Nintendo Wii U. Players step into the boots of Corporal Winter as they battles a range of familiar and unique Aliens in their fight to uncover what happened to Hicks’ and his men (no points for guessing what) and Ripley herself. Without a HUD and armed only with a gun and your ever trusty motion tracker, Aliens: Colonial Marines looks to be finally shaping up for its close release date.
