Sega confirms Aliens: Colonial Marines for spring 2012

Wednesday, 1st June 2011 16:06 GMT By Johnny Cullen

Sega’s just confirmed a spring 2012 launch for Gearbox’s long-dormant Aliens: Colonial Marines.

Chatter on the game has been radio silent, with the Texan developer working on Borderlands the revival of Duke Nukem Forever during that time. At least, until today, that is.

“To Gearbox Software and its peers throughout the industry, Aliens is one of the most influential science fiction properties of all time,” said Gearbox boss Randy Pitchford.

“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.”

Players will lead a team of US Colonial Marines on board the U.S.S. Sulaco, as it tries to survive the deadly alien creatures abord the wreckage.

The game will be on show at E3 next week at Sega’s booth. Sega’s released a new trailer and a fresh screen. You can find them both below.

    Actually that was pretty cool. The voices are a bit hammy, but it pushes the right buttons.

    @4 sega huh… gearbox is the developer and they been plenty busy with borderlands + dlc, duke nukem, supposedly a new brothers in arms and probably other unanounced stuff like borderlands 2 etc. spring 2012 probably gives this game more of a chance to find an audience. holiday 2011 will be ruled by call of duty like usual.

    I really hope Gearbox go the extra mile and make it a proper squadbased shooter. And a proper Aliens game.

    I love ‘em for the Brothers in Arms franchise. They’re pretty much keeping the genre alive singlehandedly.

    I really liked Aliens Vs Predator, the only problem was the stupid ass trophy list. I hope they do a better job with this game.
