Gamespot have given a few details away about the forthcoming Aliens FPS, developed by Gearbox:
“Development for the project is apparently well under way. “We’re working really hard on that right now,” said Pitchford… The executive also revealed some tidbits about the plot of the Aliens game, which is due on “next-gen platforms” in 2009. “Our game’s about becoming a Colonial Marine, and looking at it from the Colonial Marines’ perspective,” explained Pitchford. The Colonial Marines battled the acid-blooded xenomorphs in Aliens, and were a template for the troopers who fight alongside the Master Chief in the Halo games.”
The executive also mentions that some people from Gearbox have shared things with developers from Obsidian, who are making the Aliens RPG game. But the games are going in completely different directions. Thanks to MetroidMatt87 for the news.
