A new story trailer has been released for the highly anticipated game, Aliens: Colonial Marines. What's great about this trailer is it features Michael Beihn's Corporal Hicks from James Camon's Aliens. The character is shown in a recorded video message warning the other space Marines about the dangers of Hadley's Hope.
The game is supposed to serve as a direct sequel to the movie Aliens. This is the sequel that hopefully fans of the films have been waiting for. I'd like to forget that Alien 3 ever happened because it was such a waste. I don't blame director David Fincher, I blame FOX. The game looks like it's going to be great though! The gameplay looks like it's going to be a lot of fun, and I'm excited to see how the story plays out! It might also give us some more answers on what might have happened between Aliens and Alien 3.
Aliens: Colonial Marines will be released on the Xbox 360, PS3, Wii U and PC on February 13th, 2013. Here's the trailer...
