Press release:



SEGA AND GEARBOX’S ALIENS: COLONIAL MARINES TO DEPLOY SPRING 2012
Catch a First Look at E3 2011 of the Game That Pits You and Your Friends Against the Deadliest Killers in the Galaxy


“It’ll be dark soon, and they mostly come at night… mostly.” LONDON & SAN FRANCISCO (June 1st, 2011) –SEGA® Europe Ltd. and SEGA® of America, Inc. today announced that the highly-anticipated first-person shooter, Aliens: Colonial Marines™, will be launching in spring 2012 on PC, PlayStation®3 computer entertainment system and the Xbox 360® video game and entertainment system from Microsoft. 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. A first look of the game is presented in the South Hall at SEGA’s booth #2023, at this week’s E3 in Los Angeles.

“To Gearbox Software and its peers throughout the industry, ALIENS is one of the most influential science fiction properties of all time,” said Randy Pitchford, President of Gearbox Software. “Aliens: Colonial Marines, designed as an interactive successor to the landmark films from Twentieth Century Fox, is a dream project about which our studio is deeply committed and passionate.”

“Aliens: Colonial Marines will be THE definitive ALIENS gaming experience,” said Gary Knight, Senior Vice President of Marketing at SEGA Europe and SEGA of America. “Gearbox Software are doing a brilliant job translating the thrill and horror that ALIENS stands for into an action-packed shooter experience with co-operative gameplay at its core.”

Gary Rosenfeld, Senior Vice President of New Media for Fox Consumer Products added, “It’s no easy task to take on one of the most influential films of all-time, but SEGA and Gearbox are not going to disappoint. This game will be a must-have for fans of the ALIENS franchise and gamers around the globe.”

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 will be available spring 2012 on PlayStation 3, Xbox 360 and PC. The game is also on display in the South Hall at SEGA’s booth #2032, at this week’s Electronic Entertainment Expo in Los Angeles.

Unlike many people I thoroughly enjoyed AVP on pc (the last one) it just felt so awsome being either the alien pred or humans. Humans were especially scary to play as. The aliens I thought were really dam well modelled to in that game they looked great.

nice to see it's still in development, just gotta hope it turns out good. i'm hoping for split screen co-op, since it seems to fit the game well. (online co-op as well obviously)

If you go to http://174.143.27.200/ and enter "father" you got a slightly longer teaser that seems to show some in game shots.

Thank you! Lighting looks really nice. But I don't know how this will differentiate itself from the Marine campaign in AVP 3.

What these games seem to lack is the tension and claustrophobic nature of the films. I think i got more worked up playing Aliens on the C64 than i have on the later gens.

How is AVP3? I keep meaning to buy that, it's pretty cheap now.

I think I remember reading about this game in 09 and it was supposedly a more tactical/squad based shooter. So perhaps.. "Brothers in Arms: in Space".

I think I jizzed a little, if that is true. BiA is my favourite thing to come out of Gearbox. Maybe a little body-switching like that awful Clive Barker's Jericho game, or Full Spectrum Warrior? Don't get my hopes up!

Oh, this game still coming out? Thanks the update, see you guys when a real trailer comes out, thanks.

I'm doing a subtitled version of this trailer but i don't fully understand what they're saying
Can someone please write me the full lyrics of this teaser

Guys...i hope this game will be good but Im looking forward more to the new Alien IP which is currently developed by the Creative Assembly. Hell, they are hiring now and its on the main page of it. Check it out.

I cant wait to see what both games could offer us in terms of gameplay and atmosphere and especially the animations of the Aliens by their movement and all. For me, thats the most important aspect. The aliens gotta look believable.

Apologies for the english as its not my first language. :)

Well it was marketed as tactical cooperative game. It was delayed because Sega owned the rights for alien and had 2 different studios doing an alien game. The first game missed it's release date and it does not make sense to release 2 alien games at the same time.

Therefore Sega postponed the second game (this Gearbox one) so that it would have a better slot for release.
