Here's some new screens for Gearbox's upcoming Aliens: Colonial Marines.

Featuring a bunch of nasty Xenomorphs and grizzled marines, the shots are dripping with atmosphere, viscera and acidic alien blood. They're pretty tasty.

If nothing else we know that Aliens: Colonial Marines will offer some supreme fan service. Check out our latest preview for more.

Aliens: Colonial Marines is out on February 12th, 2013.

All right, sweethearts, what are you waiting for? Breakfast in bed? Another glorious day in the Corps! A day in the Marine Corps is like a day on the farm. Every meal's a banquet! Every paycheck a fortune! Every formation a parade! I LOVE the Corps!

@10: Yes, you play from the first-person perspective.

OT: Man, I can't wait for this game. Other than Bioshock this is my most anticipated game of 2013.

Not sure about this I miss the whole xenomorph birth cycle since loved the original avp games (not the latest one) where you could actually made your friends pregnant, kill them from the inside, then run away as everyone notices in

These screens look sort of familiar to all the other ones. Then again, you can only see so many Aliens before they all blend together as one LOL

So what's with that installation that's built right next to the fucking derelict?

At what point was that constructed? After the giant thermonuclear explosion or during the "17 weeks" (Gearbox's time frame, apparently) that transpire between the end of the film and the beginning of the game?

It certainly wasn't there when Burke had Newt's folks drive out to the derelict at the beginning of the film.

I also hear that Gearbox intends to "explain" how Hadley's Hope is still there after said giant thermonuclear explosion. Whatever the explanation, it had better include what happened to all that fallout because those marines don't appear to be wearing radiation suits.

This is fast becoming a "wait til it's cheaper" game for me... :/

#3, Gearbox had nothing to do w/ that game. AVP was made by another developer.

I think in the films AVP is a good way to explain the aliens, if anyone has seen the most recent addition "promethues" ... that is an unbelievably stupid way to explain how the aliens came to be, and after the predators had already created them, it was kinda stupid bringing another storyline into it.
For me the alien and predator games have always been pretty good, but i think playing as just an average marine been attacked by aliens is boring, and playng the aliens is too bouncy, fast and confusing, for me you cant beat stealthy skinning everyone as a predator so let me know when a DECENT predator game comes out, like Concrete jungle was.

@15 as much as I love the Alien films, particularly Aliens, I think you're gonna have to suspend a little bit of belief to enjoy this game.

Do you see Newt and her family drive to the derelict ship in the standard release of the film? I can only think of the directors cut. Maybe they're picking up from the vanilla version of the film.

Although the gameplay vids that I have seen look awesome, these screenshots are glossed up more than a Playboy bunny's cooter.

from what I've heard and seen the shots of the derelict spacecraft with the colony next to it are from the multiplayer NOT the campaign

@ #17 - The Predator's DID NOT create the Aliens. In the AVP film, you'll notice that the Alien Queen is chained up and held dormant in the pyramid facility and she in turn lays the eggs that the facehuggers hatch from and then impregnate their host/victim which in turn becomes a chestburster which in turn grows into an Alien.

Plus the Alien films and Prometheus films are set AFTER the AVP movies and the two series of films are only linked by two things - 20th Century Fox and the Alien itself.

@#18 - I think more to the point is that Gearbox need to stop talking about how much they love the movie and are taking care to "honor the fans" if they intend ignore giant occurrences within it or are just going to make shit up. And again, if they profess to be such fans of the film and are ignoring the Director's cut, that kinda comes off as disingenuous.

They should've just made it a generic installation that resembles the one in Aliens and not specifically Hadley's Hope, which ANY Aliens fan knows is not there anymore.

Director's cut or not it still turns into "a cloud of vapor the size of Nebraska" at the end. Hadley's Hope is a radiation-saturated crater...

This is not a nitpick, it is a huge moment in the film's story that is inescapable and cannot be undone.

Gearbox are using my adoration of that film to try and sell me on a game that overlooks large, glaringly important aspects of said film.

That kinda pisses me off.
