SEGA has released a new trailer for Gearbox’s Aliens: Colonial Marines, showing off the game’s “tactical multiplayer.”

“See a select number of special abilities for both the Xenomorph and the Colonial Marines, players will need to make various tactical choices when playing in multiplayer,” says the blurb, with scant regard for grammar.

“Marines have a plethora of different weapons at their disposal, from the classic pulse rifle to the iconic flamethrower, from the smart gun and legendary weapons to explosives and assault rifle. All are fully customizable, just like the multiplayer characters, and all are selectable in your load out.

“Certain weapons are great for close combat in tight environments but you might want to watch for sneak attacks when cornered. Xenomorph players can choose from 3 different classes when going into battle - Soldier, Lurker or Spitter - each with their own customizable attacks and looks.”

Have a look at the vid below. Aliens: Colonial Marines out on February 12th, 2013.

It's actually pretty enjoyable when a game's multiplayer is coop. This is worth checking out, sit back with a few friends and shoot up some xenos.

when looking all the class of the xenomorph, it feels like Left 4 Dead with Aliens

@2 agreed, the crusher was just too much and just made it another L4D imo.

@2 and 3 nothing wrong with that, L4D was cool as fuck. L4D2 not so much. And it's by Gearbox, which is a good bar to set for multiplayer/co-op.

2 was still pretty good. But yeah. What you're saying.

Theres nothing wrong with being 'a Left 4 Dead'.

Still leaps and bounds my most head-setted game on the 360, where there was eight of us laughing and yelling at each other for almost a year straight after the first L4D came out. Anything that wants to get that close to that level of community feeling with my friends is welcome to try.

What the hell did the Crusher spawn from? Are there elephants on LV-426?

Hoping this garners an audience; it'd be a shame to have another Max Payne! Great game with few players.

#7 Not all Xenomorphs come from a host species. Drones and Warriors can become Praetorian and they can molt into Queens, Carriers or Ravagers.

Dislike PvP multiplayer, the comparisons to the great L4D games makes this look all the more interesting to me. I might even get some Gold membership again.
