Aliens: Colonial Marines Cinematic Trailer

Posted on January 30, 2012 AT 07:38am

THE BUZZ: Gearbox has released a new cinematic trailer for Aliens: Colonial Marines.

The short trailer doesn’t give much away in terms or story, showing a bunch of soldiers, a bunch of aliens and a lot of venom. It’s more designed as a way of easing fan’s disappointment over the game’s recently confirmed delay.

EGM’s TAKE: Originally slated for a Spring release, the game is now due to hit Fall 2012 for Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and PC, to allow the team to concentrate on making a great game rather than rushing it out the door to meet deadlines. This sounds like a good plan, it’s better to have a fantastic game than one that releases on time and is full of bugs, and after such a long development cycle a few more months won’t hurt. There are incredibly high expectations for this game, and that’s just from the EGM staff, but can Gearbox deliver the Aliens game that we’ve all been waiting for; one that induces fear around ever corner, and a real feeling of helplessness. We’ll have to wait until later in the year to find out.

Are you excited for the game? Let us know below.

An ability to go many hours without sleep and a quick wit make him ideal for his role as associate editor at He often thinks back to the days when the very idea of this career seemed like nothing but an impossible dream.
