SEGA, in association with 20th Century Fox and Gearbox Software, has released the cover art for the highly anticipated video game Aliens: Colonial Marines. The game, taking place in between James Cameron's Aliens and David Fincher's Alien³, puts players in the boots of a new group of Colonial Marines facing off against the deadly Xenomorphs.
Aliens: Colonial Marines begins with an ostensibly abandoned ship, the U.S.S. Sulaco, recovered in orbit around LV-426. Players lead a group of highly trained United States Colonial Marines as they board the deserted craft to uncover the fate of the crew. They will have to fight to survive unspeakable horrors and their own anxieties as they chase down the truth behind a galaxy-spanning deception that places humanity at the mercy of the most murderous and deadly species in the universe. Aliens: Colonial Marines 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 is scheduled for release this fall for the Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and PC.
