Aliens: Colonial Marines – Givin’ You a Facehug

Colonial Marines Contact Trailer

 

Face-hugger Removal Done Right

I just don’t learn.  It seems that I simply NEED to have every Aliens game that comes out.  The last one though(AVP), truth be told still leaves a bad taste in my mouth.
The game controls were clunky which detracted a lot from the game play, and regretfully the didn’t sort out the multiplayer for the initial roll-out, and there was basically
no one online. Will that prevent me from getting the next rendition? Hell No!  It has ALIENS AND MARINES.  Two great reasons to buy any game. ..

Some of my fondest memories of the realm of Aliens is when my grandfather took me to see Alienswhen I was in sixth grade.  For some reason unbeknownst to me,
he somehow thought that the film would be educational.  Well Poppy, it was educational, but not in the way that you had perhaps originally anticipated.

So will this rendition of the mega franchise be any different?  Well if the above video is any indication of the quality and atmosphere that will be delivered in the final product,
I’d say: yes.

Here are some of the key features that we can expect with Aliens: Colonial Marines:

Enlist in the Marine Corps
Bringing you a true sequel to James Cameron’s classic Aliens, get tooled up with classic Marine weapons including pulse rifles, motion trackers and flamethrowers.
The most authentic Aliens experience ever
Using authentic environments inspired by the film series including Hadley’s Hope, the Sulaco and LV-426, you will be immersed in an eerie, atmospheric world where any moment could bring your death.
Drop-in / Drop-out co-operative gameplay
The masters of co-op bring their expertise to the Aliens universe. Xenos getting too tough? Call up your buddies so they can drop in with extra firepower. The whole campaign can be played with a squad of up to four players, dropping in and out as necessary through self-contained missions within an over-arching narrative.
Loadouts and upgrades
Create your perfect killing machine. An extensive upgrade system allows players to customize their characters to play the way they want. Earn experience to get perks, new weapons and new looks for your squad.
