Aliens: Colonial Marines Trailer Reignites Hope for Spookier ‘Aliens’
We’re less than a week away from the launch of Aliens: Colonial Marines, and a few of us have gotten a little worried about the game.
The last trailer we saw emphasized the shooting and bad-ass-ness of the colonial marines themselves, which is something many fans of the Alien franchise are none too thrilled about. After all, Aliens was about these cocky marines getting their asses handed to them, not about how cool their guns were.
Thankfully, the extended trailer released by Sega and Gearbox today takes a slower, spookier approach to the material, and it might renew your faith a little bit. It reminds me of the Dead Island trailer we all loved so well, but perhaps more accurate to what kind of game we can expect to play. Although, of course — perhaps not.
Meantime, check out the video, and if you’re interested in snagging the PC version of Aliens: Colonial Marines, I’d suggest heading over to Get Games. Using the code LV-426, you can get a Steam version of the title for about $30.
