Aliens: Colonial Marines Trailer Shows Hadley's Hope, From Concept to Game

SEGA and Gearbox Software have released a rather short and not all that exciting trailer for Aliens: Colonial Marines, showing how a piece of concept art is rendered in the game itself.

In this case, it's Hadley's Hope that's the subject of the concept to game video, depicting an artist's rendition of a big, destroyed corridor in the structurally unstable colony that was last seen exploderised at the end of Aliens. Fading from the concept art to the in-game version, you can see all the detail and lighting that's gone into Colonial Marines' realisation of Hadley's Hope.

Take a look at it in the brief video below. Aliens: Colonial Marines is out on February 12th, 2013. You can give our latest hands-on preview the once over here.

Looks great. I just watched 'Aliens' last night, so it really put me in the mood to pick up this game when it comes out.

This really does look like the Aliens game I've been hoping for. Can't wait for this!

I really, really, really hope this game doesn't suck. If they make the single player an enjoyable, lengthy and challenging experience they will be halfway there. How they balance the MP and keep it fun ( unlike AvP) is a bigger challenge. Good luck to em, and I pray they pull it off.
Lets Rock!

The thing is, it's set on LV426 after the end of Aliens. The atmosphere processor exploded in a thermo nuclear blast. How can anything of the colony still be there? And how can anyone walk around the place not in a lead suit?

@6 there is this wacky thing called beta/games-testing: it's an actual job (unfortunately not MY job) *cries softly in a corner*

@#10 - I've been asking that question for months and I usually get one guy who like:

"Hey, yeah!" and agrees with me right away, and everyone else posts that I need to "suspend my disbelief" or some other similar nonsense.

Because what they are really asking me to do is lower my standards.

Any Aliens fan worth his/her salt knows that Hadley's Hope is a radiation-saturated crater. It cannot be the setting for anything after the film.

This game seems like yet another half-assed attempt to resurrect the franchise by co-opting people's love of what came before and kinda shitting all over it.

If I can't allow that bubbling cauldron of feces, Prometheus, into canon, I'm certainly not going to accept this game.

The same Hadley's Hope that was wiped off the map by a thermonuclear blast the size of Nebraska?

@12 - Dammit, man, you need suspend your disbelief already.

Nah, I actually agree with you completely.

This game LOOKS good.

But so did aliens vs predator when they was about to launch... And that was horrific.
