Aliens: Colonial Marines – New Trailer and Pre-Order Info

By on January 24th, 2013 12:55 pm

Aliens: Colonial Marines

Sega and Gearbox have released a new trailer for Aliens: Colonial Marines. Somehow, by watching the trailer, it looks like this game can be a re-imagined approach of what would have happened if a rescue team would have been sent after Ripley, Hicks, Hudson and company become stranded in the LV-426 planet. That or to put you in the skin of a soldier part of that team. Either way the game seems to have all the ingredients to offer the experience of how it would be to be there, where the second movie of the Alien franchise unfolds. Most of the trailer seems to be cinematic but there are a few bits of gameplay as well.

By the way, the game is already available for pre-purchase for $49.99 on GreenManGaming, GameStopSteam and GamersGate for the PC. For PS3 and Xbox look here. GreenManGaming is offering a 30% discount on pre-purchase today (w/ voucher: GMG30-ALIEN-SDEAL). Aliens: Colonial Marines is out on February 12, 2013 for the PC, PS3 and Xbox 360.

So, in the mood for shooting some Xenomorphs? Or, not really?

    What a terrible trailer with cringeworthy dialogue.I predict a turd.

  2. Toby says:

    Ok, yes it’s ‘marine-cliche’ and the likes, but I don’t really understand what people are expecting. The philosophical, mind-bending dialogues of the movie ‘Aliens’?

    The game might well be crappy, but I surely don’t know yet. I just honsestly wonder what people actually want from a shooter like this.

  3. Keith Turner says:

    I’m really confused about what tone they were trying to set here. If anything, I think they may lose some of their potential pre-orders based on this trailer. It reminded me of one of the over the top trailers Gearbox would do for Borderlands 2, not for a game with dark serious tones like this one.

    I also haven’t seen any aspect of this game that I haven’t already seen done better elsewhere.

  4. Chris Biot says:

    I always hoped that Colonial Marines would turn out into a more realistic approach with a dense and dark atmosphere, focusing on using gadgets and devices to survive. With a focus on squadcommands and excellent coop.

    Now it looks like some generic shooter, the trailer is horrible. Horrible dialogue with generic dubstep.

  5. Adam Solo says:

    I didn’t find it too bad, but that’s probably because I interpreted the exaggerated “marine-cliché” as humor in a “They don’t have a clue on what they are facing” kind of way. Reminds me of the movie tone, especially in the beginning when the marines were so over confident and so proud of themselves. They were really clueless on what they were about the face. But, what I think may destroy this argument is that in the trailer they seem to know what they are about the face. It is said: “if you’re in our right mind you would get a transport home” or something. So, I dunno.

    I think the trailer tries to depict that sense of over confidence in the “core”. But, that was maybe just me. Anyway, I’m not up to speed in FPS these days, so I can’t really judge if the graphics are that bad. They look fine to me. And, about the gameplay I can’t really tell from the trailer alone.

    I must say I like this trailer. Especially the line :” You don’t die unless I give you a direct order.” :P

  7. Mark says:

    The dialogue *is* truly, embarrassingly awful. Worse than amateurish. I have seen much better trailers of this game and I don’t think that this one did the game any favors at all.

  8. Loyal_Viggo says:

    I think the area that this will most appeal will be the coop multiplayer, especially if it’s anything like the original Alien vs Predator 1+2 games as their coop was outstanding.

    The AvP games, including the latest one, are still probably the most fear-inspiring games due to the thud thud thud of the motion tracker… at least for me anyway.

  9. DevildogFF says:

    The game’s writer even said it was horrible. In so many words. Turns out the whole voice over for this video isn’t even in the game. Many people involved in the game are pretty upset that such a horrible trailer was made for their game.

    I dunno. I’ll wait to see reviews…

  10. hakkarin says:

    I thought that this was suppose to be a scary horror game with action elements? Was I wrong?

    I really hope this won’t just be CoD with aliens in them.

  11. Mark says:

    Here’s a trailer for the game that *doesn’t* insult your intelligence.
