Aliens: Colonial Marines will have new breeds of alien, gauntlet sections and heroic last stands

Aliens: Colonial Marines aims to deliver the definitive Aliens co-op survival experience, but Gearbox are keen to try and ensure that it doesn’t turn into a mindless xeno-blaster. As revealed in our six page preview in the latest issue of PC Gamer UK, Gearbox have taken cues from Half Life 2 and Left 4 Dead to ensure that Aliens: Colonial Marines is “at times a tactical shooter, at times survival horror, at times adventure and exploration.” New gadgets and weapons give marine teams plenty of choice when setting up defences, but players will have to deal with new, never-before-seen breeds of alien.

The story is too old to be commented.

I have high hopes for this game, but I also had high hopes for Alien vs Predator and that turned out to be crap.

Hope this one is good

To be fair gearbox have gone from strength to strength (we'll ignore DNF) where as rebellion made an awesome game in 1991 and then remade the same game in 2010 and surprise surprise, when you ignore 20 years of progress in a fledgling industry things don't go well.

Gearbox has gone from strength to strength?!

Last I checked they butchered Brothers In Arms.

Cant wait to play Colonial but still Gearbox has hell to pay for what they did to that franchise.

This game has skyrocketed up on my most wanted. I was so disappointed with the last Aliens game that came out that I pretty much had written this game off too. But now with info coming to light and screen shots showing a very solid looking game... Well lets just say I get giddy at the mention of it now.
