We’ve been waiting years for Aliens: Colonial Marines to come out and after suffering so many delays we half expected to see a new slip for the long-awaited return to the sci-fi horror franchise when opening the latest press release from publishers Sega.
But thankfully, it’s good news! Well, providing you count an 8 month wait as good news! Gearbox’s co-op first person shooter has now been given a firm release date of February 12th 2013 for Xbox 360, PC and PS3 versions. A version planned for Nintendo’s next console, the Wii U, will land at a latter date that’s yet to be revealed.
Pitched as a true sequel to James Cameron’s alien-blasting science fiction classic, up to four players will be able to join forces across familiar locations from the movie series, blasting varying Xenomorph foes in what would certainly be classed by Hudson as “a bug hunt”.
President of Gearbox Randy Pitchford said, “I am thrilled to announce the definitive launch date for Aliens: Colonial Marines. Aliens: Colonial Marines is the culmination of a life-time of inspiration from the films and relentless passion and drive from the exceptionally talented development team behind the scenes.”
We can’t wait!
