Colonial Marines scheduled to deploy in 2012

Sega will deploy its long-awaited Aliens: Colonial Marines in the spring of 2012.

The game is (initially) set in an ostensibly abandoned ship, the U.S.S. Sulaco, which was recovered in orbit around LV-426. 



The Marines board the deserted craft in search of its missing crew and end up hunting down the truth behind a galaxy-spanning deception involving the deadliest species in the known universe.

“Aliens: Colonial Marines will be THE definitive Aliens gaming experience. Gearbox [is] doing a brilliant job translating the thrill and horror that Aliens stands for into an action-packed shooter experience with co-operative gameplay at its core,” said Sega rep Gary Knight.


“[The title] features authentic environments, such as the surface of LV-426 and Hadley’s Hope, weapons inspired by the film series and is designed to provide an exhilarating and engaging new chapter in the Aliens universe.”

Aliens: Colonial Marines – which debuts at E3 2011 in Los Angeles – will be available in spring 2012 on the Playstation 3, Xbox 360 and PC.
