Several online retailers including Gamespot and the official Sega store have released new pre-order details for the digital version of the upcoming videogame Aliens: Colonial Marines, revealing a brand new Colonial Marines weapon called the S.H.A.R.P. rifle. According to the blurb: “Customers who pre-order Aliens: Colonial Marines will receive “The S.H.A.R.P. Rifle” free. As referenced by Hudson in Aliens™ the prototype sonic-harpoon artillery remote projectile (S.H.A.R.P.) rifle fires time-delayed, explosive-tipped darts that embed themselves into enemies or terrain.”
Additionally, a good number of concept art images from the game featuring Hadley’s Hope among other scenarios have been posted online over the past few weeks. Make sure to check out the gallery after the cut if you missed the new material.
Update 29/11/12: A new brief clip titled “Concept to Game” has been released today in which we can see some of the art pieces linked above in video & 3D form. You can watch it here.
