Aliens: Colonial Marines in Game Informer

This is some big news. The magazine Game Informer will have a first look at the new Aliens: Colonial Marines game by Gearbox in March’s issue. The name should sound familiar. A similar game with the same name was being made by EA / Fox Interactive back in 2001 for PS2 but was ultimately cancelled. Check out Game Informer’s cover where the new Aliens game is featured:

Not sure what day the magazine comes out but someone will surely scan it in. It will have the first pictures of the game in action. Aliens: Colonial Marines will be released for consoles and PC in 2009. Thanks to sturmgewehr, Cellien and AvP2Daily.de for the news.

    The old PS2 version was said take place between Aliens and Alien3.  The setting of the gasme was going to be on board the Sulaco.  There was also going to be an attempt to logically explain how the queen egg from Alien3 got on board the Sulaco.  Storywise, the PS2 game seemed ambitious.  Hopefully this version will equally ambitious as well.

    GameStop.Com has the pre-release date for the game being 10/07/08. Other sites have it in early 2009. Any one know which is more accurate or is everyone just guessing at this point? Also, on that site the cover art for the magazine is also used as the box cover art for the game, at least for now.  It looks pretty awesome!  Can't wait to play it!

    @Jimmmz: Yeah, me too. It looked rather good and I was looking forward to it for PS2, but now that Gearbox is helming the project and it's coming out for PC (not to mention the kind of technology we have today)... I simply cannot wait!  Here's hoping we'll get a great Xeno campaign and epic inter-special multi-player modes (with co-op, of course). *crosses fingers*

    Boy, this game has been a long time com'n, and with Gearbox behind the wheel, I can pretty much gaurantee it's going to be stellar.    ;)    My only major concern, aside from keeping film faithfulness and canon accuracy in check with great gameplay    ;)  , is that players won't be able to assume the role of our favorite bio mechanical slaughtering machines.   :-[   Which, if so, would be a HUGE missed opportunity.   :-\
