Aliens: Colonial Marines Movie Map Pack DLC

A new DLC for Aliens: Colonial Marines, entitled “Movie Map Pack”, has been announced today. This multiplayer DLC includes two new Deathmatch/Extermination maps, one new Survivor map and a new Escape map. All these maps are based on locations from Alien, Aliens, and Alien 3.

“The two new Team Deathmatch and Extermination maps feature locations from Aliens & Alien 3 – ‘Fury 161’ takes place in the run-down prison facility as seen in Alien 3, while ‘Processor’ puts you in the heart of the Alien hive from the Atmospheric plant in Aliens.

The new Survivor map, ‘Nostromo’, features marines defending themselves against Xenos inside the iconic spaceship from Alien.

The new Escape map, ‘Exodus’, is situated on the doomed Sulaco. Marines awaken from cryo-sleep and must navigate their way to escape pods whilst under Xeno attack.”

The Movie Map Pack will be available on PC, PS3, and Xbox 360 from June 11th (June 12th for PlayStation 3 players in Europe). Thanks to Predarker for the news.

    I have to say that these are my favorite maps in the game, fury 161 is a ton of fun, and the dead prisoners everywhere is a nice touch, but processor is my absolute favorite, it has the best looking hive map in any Aliens game to date, it also has the most atmosphere of any part of the game. Nostromo is okay, I just find it too small, I haven't tried the new escape map yet though.

    The creation of new in-game assets for this map - the prisoners, hand torches, candles, world textures etc - give me hope that the final DLC may be a single-player campaign exploring events of Fury 161 either before the events of the main game, or after.

    In the game, wishing I could get some Nostromo happening... it's 'Survivor' only, and people don't seem to be playing that mode. If you're on the PS3 and into some of that, add me: FilmGuy808:)

    Season Passer here... will get the new pack A.S.A.I.A.

    BTW... I still can't understand how some people here keep saying nobody plays this online anymore. I still find people doing online MP matches (in the PS3 at least ...).  ::)

    Man, I haven't even thought about this game since beating the campaign way back when.

    But, any chance to stand on the Nostromo gets my money.  ;D

    Hopefully I'll see some of you PS3 cats on Tuesday night. I'm FilmGuy808.

    This map map sounds pretty great, I'm really surprised that they included content explicitly from 'Alien' and 'Alien3' instead of just rehashing more 'Aliens' stuff.

    Also if this is the third of 4 DLC packs, that means the next one has to be the campaign content, right?

    Supposedly.
    Forget campaign though, I'd rather have more bug hunt maps. Especially one set inside the hive from Aliens

    Looks like that's not going to happen  :'(
    The one slightly redeeming factor of the game.  I can't help but think they'd have sold more DLC if they would have made Bug Hunt part of the game and sold at least 1 BH map in each DLC pack.

    Yes all these maps are just dividing the low community. If anybody has the season pass on PS3 add me. My name is exactly the same as on here. Until the maps are released, I wont actively hunt down any other members who have the pass. But hopefully some of you add me  :)

    I'm hoping the Hive map from Aliens has two Smart Guns. One near the exit of the hive and one near the APC (which everyone knows will be there). One should be a regular Smart Gun and the other should be "Vasquez's" Smart Gun from campaign.
    If you do anything right gearbox just throw as much references to the best scene in the movie as possible.

    at this point in time I'm really glad I didn't buy the season pass,I mean just adding maps works for games with heavy amounts of players but it takes me about 5-10 minutes to find matches now,like the idea behind it but the multiplayer is gonna be dead soon and unless it comes out for a very low price I don't see the point of buyimg it

    In response to the bad mouthing this game has received its understandable; however the devs have owned up and made some seriously needed changes and tweaks to make AL(l)ENS worth playing! 

    <<<CHECK OUT MY VIDS>>>  <<<NO HUD>>>






    <<<I HAVE MORE VIDS AND WILL UPDATE SOON>>>

    MP on PC/STEAM version is not dead for me. I have added over 20 players from all over the globe I can have a game anytime I want...The servers are not flooded but I can log on now via my mobile and count random. I see 3 players online and that may be in different rooms. But if I was home I would be playing it with the ALIEN ALIENS and ALIEN resurrection/Alien Trilogy ost adding theme. XD



    Also I have season pass + all addons overall I spent a pretty penny on this game and I have over 340 hours in game time (campaign sp playtime subtracted)....no refund needed...STEAM really saved this game for me because its so easy to add other players and see when they are online. add me on steam

    im actually quite excited for this new DLC if there is something gearbox nailed on A:CM its the atmosphere in mp ive felt my heart in my throat as i was running from a pack of aliens knowing that my chances of survival being the last marine were slim but still gave a great feel unfortunately ive lost some of my squad to them not being able to afford xbox live so if anyone wants to join me in some xeno blastin' adventures add me on xbox :D PredatorSquatch

    Thanks Corporal Hicks!

    Even though this is only another map pack, I am excited. These are the kinds of maps many fans were asking for. Survivor mode on the Nostromo has some interesting possibilities for private matches. Imagine playing with 2 marines vs 1 lurker and one marine has to use a pistol while the other only uses a motion tracker, or maybe 1vs1 with only a flamethrower.  :D Customize your marine with no helmet or shoulder pads for added realism.  :laugh:

    I'm really looking forward to using the movie skins on the Processor map, as well. Next week should be fun!

    no bug hunt....this is a good idea but im sure they dont even know whats going on on the online servers...curious about the nostromo and fury but...really??? freekin' sulaco?? we will be running around in the same shit levels as we did in the first few sp missions im sure or  whatever on the other maps of sephora...why not derelict or getaway?
  16. wonkyfunk303
    why are the even bothering with it anymore?? there are hundreds of preowned copies everywhere now and the price for new has dropped dramatically!! does anyone play online? i tried a few times and it was all over the place. just wish i had bought it on steam so i could get a refund, havent even got very far in the game, had to turn it off in disappointment
