Aliens: Colonial Marines’ Latest Trailer is Face-Huggingly Awesome

Gearbox Software’s latest game is thankfully, not related to Duke Nukem in anyway. Instead, it’s based on cult-hit franchise Aliens. While the game’s been delayed into the fourth quarter of 2012, that hasn’t stopped publisher SEGA from releasing trailers for the game to whet our appetites.

In the latest trailer, which is a mix of both CGI and actual gameplay, it shows how the Marines need to cooperate with each other in order to survive the alien onslaught.

Normally, I’m all about the competitive multiplayer in FPS games, but the fact that Aliens: Colonial Marines has a co-op component is very intriguing. Imagine playing online, you and your buddies are coordinating on how to tackle the alien scum. Now, that’s going to take some real teamwork!

Hopefully, Gearbox can sustain the tension throughout the whole game. If so, I think they might have something special here.
