Aliens: Colonial Marines
Aliens: Colonial Marines Pre-Order Trailer Fights the Fear

View author's profile

A new trailer for Aliens: Colonial Marines has crawled out of a ventilation shaft today, showing the game's previously announced pre-order bonus content, which includes four classic characters from the original 1986 Aliens corp. I love the corps!

Available at GameStop in the US and via selected retailers in the UK and Europe, a pre-order for Aliens: Colonial Marines will net you Drake, Hudson (game over, man and all that), Apone and Hicks to play as in multiplayer, as well as Ripley's iconic flamethrower that she uses to take on the Xenomorph queen in the original Aliens movie.

You'll be able to customise each Marine's arsenal to include the pulse rifle, smart gun and what not, when Aliens: Colonial Marines comes out of the walls on February 12th, 2013. Check out the trailer below.

Shame 3/4 of the people who wanted this when it was announced have forgotten about it ...

I want to like this game, and I want to want this game, but so far… The gameplay footage leaves me unconvinced.

"in the original Aliens movie"

Aliens was the second movie? or has it been remade.

I cant wait for this, i just hope its better than Aliens Vs Predator.

Hudson has some of the best quotes ever.

I guess I will have to play as Hudson! Seeing as that is where my Gamertag came from.

Is it just me, or does anyone else find it a little worrisome that there was no dialogue spoken by any of the characters?

I mean, shit, if you're gonna give me Hudson and then not get Bill Paxton to do his voice, what the fuck's the point?

@#6 I agree with you. I do want to play good Alien game, but Gearbox did not strike me as a serious studios, and it feels in all of these trailers. I doubt it will be an scary (especially in co-op), but maybe at least it will have decent story, because we know gameplay should be awesome=)

Needs Vasquez, dammit. Should have switched Drake for her.

@15 I'm more saddened by the fact that they put Drake instead of Vasquez. Although granted the chances of them getting the four actors to reprise the voices are slim to none, unfortunatelty. Of course we may be wrong and they are keeping that very low keep and the minute we start the single-player we will hear Hudson scream out "Game over man!"

Or would that be more fitting when we finish the game and the credits are rolling?

Needs the original voices, otherwise it's kinda pointless.

@#19 - I think they should've switched Apone with Vasquez, honestly, then at least you could play Drake and Vasquez together. Y'know like they kind of alluded to in the flick? ;)

And frankly, the actors LOVED being in the film and I think if they'd tried, they could've gotten them to reprise the roles. Shit, they got Lance Henriksen (granted he's not voicing Bishop, but still), I can't see why the rest wouldn't at least consider it. I wonder if Gearbox even asked or if they deemed it beyond their budget... :/

Well, then here's hoping at the very least they hire Rob Weithoff (a.k.a. Red Dead's John Marston) to voice Hudson since he has a similar voice to Paxton's. But I don't see A:CM on Weithoff's imdb page, so that's prolly not gonna happen...

@#7 i think its cause the original first movie is just called alien. Aliens is the second so makes sense

I don't even care if they only recycle dialog from the film. These characters need to have lines to make this worthwhile.
