NEW TRAILER!!! (link inside)

Staff edit - ikarop: We can reveal that the trailer was crafted by Axis Animation in a team effort with Gearbox and Sega. You may remember them from this highly acclaimed cinematic trailer for Dead Island. The studio has exclusively commented on this first part of the trailer for us. Read it all below:

"We were incredibly excited when approached by advertising agency Uber and their client Sega about Aliens: Colonial Marines. There is hardly a person in Axis who isn't an Alien fan, from the finance department to the animation team everyone loves the franchise.

The idea for the trailer is challenging creatively and from a technical point of view but this is something that director Stu Aitken is well known being able to make happen. Finding the right balance between tension and action is the key to this piece and so far Stu has struck it just right.

The Axis team have been given a lot of guidance by both Gearbox and Sega to ensure everything is spot on for the Alien franchise, attention to every detail is very important in every project we do but especially here.

We really can't wait to push forward with the continued work we are doing on the project, we look forward to more great reactions to what is coming next!"

Wow using the soundtrack to Moon was an interesting choice. Like it a lot.

You beat Ikarop with the hot fingers?  Holy cow, you must've been dropping bombs on that refresh button, friend!

Nice find, thanks.

A nice video, but the combat looked absolutely retarded with marines blasting away at moron xenos two feet in front of their face.  I know it's only a CG vid, but I can't help but notice.  Hope it's not indicative of actual gameplay.

Is this supposed to tide us over until fall?  *Slaps self*

I was excited for it!  :laugh:

Yeah, you're right there. But, maybe, that group of Marines gets wasted just after that cutscene ended if you know what I mean.

Yeah it really is ridiculous to draw conclusions about the game from that little movie.  My nerd-analyzer was all set to see some new footage, so now all it has to over-analyze into the ground is this. :laugh:
