Aliens: Colonial Marines Collector's Edition Officially Hugs Your Face

View author's profile

Originally spied back in January of this year, SEGA has now officially revealed the Aliens: Colonial Marines Collector's Edition, which bundles the game with a resin figurine of a powerloader wrestling a xenomorph, a USCM Dossier containing a Mission Brief, USS Sephora Schematic, Recruitment Card, LV-426 Recon Photo, USCM Iron-on Badges and a USCM Graduation Certificate, and a bunch of DLC.

The DLC includes four playable movie characters - Cpl. Hicks, Sgt. Apone, Pvt. Hudson and Pvt. Drake - Ripley's Flamethrower, additional Marine customisation items, the USCM Acadamy Firing Range level, a Phase Plasma Rifle and some Sonic Electronic Ball Breakers. This is all crammed into a Collector's Edition 'xeno hive' box.

If the Collector's Edition all seems a bit much, then a pre-order from GameStop will net you the four movie characters, Ripley's Flamethrower and the additional Marine customisation items. You can check it all out in the images below. Aliens: Colonial Marines is out on February 12th, 2013.

Cool for collectors, just the regular edition for me though with the pre-order DLC. To me the movie characters DLC is the best out of the extras and they are free.

That's a pretty awesome collectors edition but lately I haven't been bothering with collectors editions. I find them not quite as worth it as they used to be.

I so want this game, as I'm a huge fan of Alien and Aliens. The 2 best in the franchise. With some online co op and a few good friends, dark room and a few beers, I'm gonna have so much fun.

As for having Hicks, Drake, Apaone etc. Will they have the actors do the voice over? I sure hope so. Keep it authetic then.

@11 agree'd stick a statue in there with the "SPECIAL edition" means you can charge more.Lately it seems people are hating on companies for charging for some dlc BUT dont mind paying extra for a little plastic figure that does nothing.@13 is proof of this, will pay more just to have a plastic figure but hopes the games is good,@21 is getting the plastic figure no matter what.@21 your getting this version even though the game could be the worse thing you ever played?

They could have really cashed in on releasing it closer to Prometheus, but I'm willing to wait a while longer if the game is anything like it's hyped up to be!

You fucking insane? Co-op will MAKE this game for me!

What is wrong with Co-op anyways, it is just a bonus. You don't need to play Co-op if you dont like it.

And besides, who wouldn't want to play co-op campaign, or survival with a friend, and get the shit scared out of you together.

You hear the *BEEP...BEEP...BEEP" and you and your friend are near eachother. All of a sudden an alien appears behind your friend and you're shouting "RIGHT THE F*UCK BEHIND YO---" and some alien kills you.

I don't know about you, by gaming with a friend, especially in suspenseful is gaming at its peak.

Sorry for the strange question but does anybody know if you can ADS in this game? I hated not being able to do it in AVP!
Playing as original Aliens characters sounds good.

Am I the only one who doesn't understand everyone's excitement over this game? Not that I'm thinking it'll be bad or something.

But ever since it was revealed, I haven't entirely understood why everyone has been going so crazy for it.

@34 I don't get all the hate over co-op games lately. It baffles me.

@39 Hudson won't die this time. He's too much of a bad dude to get killed this time.

Wow... you must have moved into the movie theater if you didn't finish watching it until '87... since it came out in 1986! :-p

I've been waiting a long time for this, too. Now there's an awesome-looking collectible to boot!!

I'm glad it's not coming out just before Christmas... when there's probably going to be 5 or 6 games that I'll want to get - and be spending money on presents for family, too! February tends to be hit or miss on good games, so this should be one of the good ones!!! :-D

#46 Vasquez over Drake personally. Hicks, Hudson, Vasquez and Apone would have been perfect.
