Aliens Colonial Marines Trailer & Release Date

Sega has released a new trailer to announce the release date of the upcoming Aliens: Colonial Marines videogame. Some of the footage was already seen in recent single player video previews but most of it is new and 100% in-game material. Unfortunately the game has been delayed yet again, this time until February 12, 2013. You can download the video here in HD.

    I don't care how long the development takes as long as the final version keeps up with the expectations. Only thing thats still kinda weird are the aliens' huge feet and that they removed the tail fin again. Also they might consider to go easy on the blood cause tomato juice sprayed on every single surface doesn't equate to genuine scares. Those guys should replay Silent Hill once in a while.

    Your point?

    My point is that its wrong to think everything is gonna be fine FOR SURE now, when we have exact ACM release date. This doesn't mean anything. It can get delayed again, even with this definitive date.
    You can never be sure, that is why game developers do test plays and even Demos, it's to try and find a medium which is very hard to achieve, to please everyone is ridiculous hard and just wont happen.
    Same happened with AvP 2010, there are those that love and those that don't, people were really exited before hand and it turned out to be not a lot of peoples cup-of-tea.
    The there is Urban Warfare, most of you probably never heard of it but it's an indieish game that is fantastic but there aren't as many players due to not being known of.

    Either way.....a game is a game, if you don't want it. Don't get it.

    More than anything I hate is someone who will lay their cards down to try change someone's opinion. Not saying you are, but they are out there :-\

    I understand why movie release dates are pushed but why keep pushing video games ::).

    The production will never get anywere for that game, it's been 10 years now.

    They sure love dragging it out.

    I know you're having trouble with this, but maybe it bears saying again: the game 'Aliens: Colonial Marines' which was meant to come out in 2002 was a different game. It is categorically not the one we're waiting for now. Gearbox's game just has the same title, 'cause - y'know - it's a good title.

     :D

    Oh lordy...

    Oh come on! even in the unlikely event that it's all been some elaborate ruse and it's been the same game right from it's 2000/2001 announcment, it certainly wasn't a Gearbox game then. To complain that this specific game game we are currently waiting for has been in development for 10 years, and that Gearbox is responsible for that is a bit off the mark, isn't it?

    Or am I getting an "Oh lordy..." for trying to reason out the unreasonable?!  :)

    There's a difference between caution and bitching. Being cautious is completely justifiable; bitching is not, as you have yet to actually play the game. Be honest, people are more upset about having to wait more than anything else, and I understand. But where is the bitching about Bioshock Infinite? That's been delayed twice, and it was revealed 2 years ago. Many games gets delayed now a days. Is it because of DNF that people are worried? As has been stated numerous times already, they didn't create DNF from scratch, they started from where 3d Realms left, who were plagued by legal, creative, and economic issues from the start, which no doubt contributed to the shoddy product. I'm not saying we disregard GBX's responsibility completely, as it is definitely GBX's worst (but least involved) product. But what about GBX's other games? They have a decent track record, and what we've seen so far looks decent at worst. I guess I'm not seeing where all the negativity is coming from all of the sudden.

    Yeah I get you.  Borderlands is a great game... GBX just seems so touch-and-go, and DNF really didn't help their reputation.

    Maybe I'm just playing devils advocate, and I very much don't agree with some of the members in this thread and their levels of hate.  I'm still excited for the game, but it's definitely dropping because of all of the unknowns that these delays could mean.

    At any rate, more waiting. :-\  Sigh.  It's definitely time for GBX to shit or get off the pot.

    DNF took bloody forever, and the end result was mediocre at best.  What were the delays for, to allow them time to assemble the basics of this shoddy product?  I just can't imagine if they'd released it without delays, would the game even have been playable at all?

    I wonder if this is why all of the trailers for A:CM only show cut scenes so far.  Sure, they might be using the in-game engine to render those scenes...but what if they are only showing us that to hide some sort of problem with the gameplay itself?  I know we've already seen some gameplay footage but it hasn't been a lot...and I have a feeling that what we've seen has been very carefully selected by GBX.  Who knows, this might just be a game that spends more time trying to tell a shoddy story through cut scenes instead of through an actual video game.  Maybe that's the lesson they learned from DNF.

    A funny video, for sure, and a clever way to break another delay to fans, but I think this is kind of why people are getting nervous.

    I think that's why fans are impatient and untrusting now.  That's why I am. :laugh:  Take developers at their word?  No, no thanks.  They can say whatever they want, regardless of what's actually happening or what their product really looks like.  I'll save my excitement for concrete evidence of something great.

    So far, Colonial Marines has delivered on the graphics and the effort making it look like a perfect Aliens clone, but that means very little as far as the game itself is concerned.

    Bitching is justified, why would you try and stop people from complaining when they have very clear, and very justifiable, reasons to complain?
  8. WinterActual
    I am not saying anything about the game in this case. I am talking to the people who are throwing cookies at their monitors just because we have a "solid" date. This date can be broken so easily, just like it happened with DNF.

    And I could counter by saying it's equally wrong to outright condemn a game just for being delayed, as you and some others have. Just wait until you play it, it's that simple.
  10. JokerJohn35
    They still anounced it a bit too early. But at least we have a presumed definitive date, if it's delayed again, it won't really bother me. There's at least four games coming around late 2012 that will be satisfying enough for a while.
  11. WinterActual
    I don't care if the game was in development for 18 months only. Its still the same game announced back in 2006. Just like DNF was the same game announced in 1997. No matter how starts from scratch they've made or how long it was in ACTUAL development, its still the same game which all the fans are waiting for.

    the original title was cancelled and hence scraped so they had to start again
    According to an old source can't find again :/ said by unknown (can't remember)

    In reality the game has been in actual development about 2 years ago i think maybe 1 and a half years

    Announced 2007. Feb. 2008 I believe was when it was featured on the cover of Game Informer. Late 2008 it was delayed for the first time.

    I am sure this time is for real  :P

    In the beginning of the development they didn't give us many info but now they gave us info in the interviews, magazines and videos.

    The only thing that really bothers me is that people will try to find out videos of A:CM on the youtube and probably will get a gameplay from 2011, one from 2012 and another from 2013.

    It's kind of hilarious that we will have a gameplay video for each year  ;D

    I disagree.

    They are not pushing it because of other franchises.

    If they needed to compete with Halo or CoD they would be launching it a little after Prometheus.Giving more hype to the franchise, but well...they are not doing this :)

    I need to say too that the more this game is being polished the more i am getting exiting to it.
    This shows me that Gearbox do care for this game.
  19. escroto
    I'm not hearing a great deal wrong with the sounds.  There is some machine gun sounds that don't sound much like pulse rifles or smart guns.  But there's also sounds that sound just like pulse rifles and smart guns.  Which sound the same anyway.

    The tracker at the start is a bit too low in pitch, but it still sounds like a tracker.
    aliens sound like frogs when dying, and most of their sounds are ADI, nota Cameron's. There our 100% material truthful to Cameron eh Gearbox? :laugh:
    Nope the sounds are right out of 'Aliens', sorry.
    now that gotta be kidding me. Man, are we talking about ACM anytime we speak each other?, because I'm getting a bit lost already.

    I like the way they sound, myself. Very in line with the "baby elephant" screams from the movie. As long as I don't hear any silly dinosaur grunting, ala AvP2010, I'll be content.  :)
    man I really dislike those space lizard or raptor sounds you are talking about. The fact that those aliens (and now the ACM ones) are aimed to the casual audience and primarily kids really sours me. :laugh:

    Also, I'm pretty sure this new delay has a lot to do with Borderlands2. GB is lying once more

    Yeah, it's a pretty sad news, but at least i think it's for the best, i'hope  :'(

    Don't fool yourselves, It's very probably that Gearbox will add nothing to the game.
    This is just for sales reasons, they don't wanna compete with Black Ops 2 and Halo 4.

    And Resident Evil 6. I still think September would work since I don't think anything major comes that month then Tekken Tag Tournament 2 and Far Cry 3?
  25. jonesycat79
    oh wow this looks amazing.
    i enjoyed the past AvP games, and found myself really enjoying the marine campaigns, and this one seems to be pretty solid in that vein while also making it feel more immersive, because the last Avp game really felt like it was rolling with the marine side of things.

    As long as the story refreshes the franchise I'll be ok with it even after the long wait, but man is this thing becoming more unbearable to gestate than a baby queen, but when it finally bursts forth its gonna be a rip roaring monster.

  26. Xenomrph
    At least the delay will give me more time to get money for this;

    http://www.avpgalaxy.net/forum/proxy.php?request=http%3A%2F%2Fgreyviper.com%2Fwp-content%2Fuploads%2F2012%2F01%2Faliens-colonial-marines-collectors-edition.jpg&hash=036d54f6d9b4e19050f54158f561414a

    What a waste, they made that for no reason because the game was delayed.
    I'm quite confident that special edition set will still get released.
