AvPG Exclusive: Colonial Marines E3 2011 Plans

Today Sega and Gearbox have officially confirmed that Aliens: Colonial Marines will finally be making its way into E3. We can now reveal that a display, based on the iconic Hadley’s Hope colony, has been made for the event.

The guys worked really hard on making it feel very authentic from the universe” Gearbox told us.

Visitors will be lead inside of the display and have the chance to get a sneak peak of the game. Leading to the ultimate Colonial Marine experience.

Gearbox adds: “We will not only be showing off a piece of the Aliens: Colonial Marines campaign, but also demonstrating the co-op capabilities at the same time“.

If you’re lucky enough to head to E3, make sure to stop by Booth #2023 and let us know your impressions. Also just like in previous years, we will be doing an online coverage of the show. Make sure not to miss it!

    Okay, so I got in. Aaannndddd, I am easily impressed and dissapointed. I'm giving them the benefit of doubt because it may have been early build. I wasn't able to get footage being rany pitchford was sitting to my right and the guy playing the demo o my left.

    The only thing that bugged me was; I'm so used to avp where you shoot the xenos they kinda dismember. None of that in the demo. The pulse rifle sounds like the smart gun in avp that really bugged. And ontop of that the ammo count never hit 99, always stayed at 50.

    They are introducing new types of xenos, one was in the demo. It looked like a big triceratops minus the horns.

    I did like the atmosphere, and the fact that you have to hold the motion tracker.

    If you guys got any questions feel freet to ask

    Sorry for typos and grammer I'm still at e3 and am posting this from th phone

    How is the AI in the game? Are the Marines (the ones which are not in your squad)  just cannon fodder or do they help you in the game against the Xenos?

    The other Marines will mostly be canon fodder it sounds like while your squad will be on of the few remaining squads.

    That deleted scene is not canon. It was completely taken out because it would not have made sense. If Burke were to be there at all, he would at the most only have a Face Hugger on him. If Burke WAS taken to the AP though, he is dead. Everything in the AP is definitely destroyed. If the idea that there is another Hive or area outside the AP where hosts (Hudson?) was being taken to then that is where we will find out.


    Well, he might have got away  ;D

    Probably not a big deal. Game is still being made.

    THIS however IS going to be a problem... On paper, this big rhino Xenos sounds like a slap in the face, but did it work well? Did it work? Does it fit in with the movies and the rest of the game?

    So that was good. Cool.

    I imagine this going like a person playing Metal Gear Solid for the first time.
    *Great one walks in*
    Hello everyone I'd like to thank you for visiting this booth- *yadda yadda*
    *Great one reaches into pants to get camera*
    Lets begin the footage
    *After recieving odd looks from having his hand in his pants the lights dim and he quickly pulls out his camera when no one looks*
    (footage plays)
    *Great one starts recording and the metal gear solid "!" appears on a marine gaurds head*
    f**k
    *Great one fends them off for all of two seconds*
    :D

    Upload video from phone.

    I really don't get this level of puckered ass unless the game is still in a very rough stage and they don't want to show fans to prevent analysis of a WIP and inevitable disappointment/anger.  It sounds pretty put together though, which eliminates every possibility save SEGA is a dick. :D  Perhaps I'm being presumptuous.  But SEGA has earned the dick title regardless, so I don't feel that bad.

    I didnt get a chance to go inside the booth today. By the time i was done filming and everything E3 was closing down, so i couldnt rush over to go in. But tomorrow i will def get into the booth. I should of took some pictures of it but i didnt think it was worthy enough to upload. But ill have some stuff for you guys tomorrow hopefully.

    Who knows. Maybe tomorrow they will let you take some pictures and a nice video. Best of luck. I hope you can get something good.  :P
  10. Cap. Fitzgerald
    Don't see how you could but.. ok.

    If you manage to slip in a camera and take pictures without getting thrown out then I'll aplaud you Great One.
    May I suggest going in twice? Once normally to watch the footage and the second (and likely last) time smuggling in a camera?

    Doesn't sound like Colonial Marines or Gearbox is on today.
    Showfloor opens in about 4 hours.

    Sounds like we'll be crawling YouTube and Twitter for vids then. Don't think Sega or GB are doing any shows or anything? At least today.

    Have we got anybody on the inside that's able to take video's or pics or anything?

    I hope this will be split screen co-op.  And in everything, not just certain modes.  I want full campaign spilt screen co-op.  I gave up on this game after the Blu rays were released.  Either way it turns out, I'm glad to hear it's alive and unharvested.

    EPIIIIIIC!!!

    Hopefully GB is still aiming to make this game a truly authentic Aliens experience in every way possible. So hopefully they'll have them at their correct, monstrous 8' height and not so wimpy like they were in AvP.

    I can't wait!!

    Well I live in the LA area but I can't attend, costs too much to get to LA and to get in.
    Trust me, I've tried repeatedly!
    What you could do is see if someone can get in contact with ShadowPred (he lives in LA but contacting him will be hard) and seeing if he has the funds to get in.
  16. ikarop
    I'm in Florida, but if I found a way I would attend.
    I had no idea... I wish I knew about this earlier!  :(

    I'm afraid it's too late now for registration.

    Well if you guys want me to report on any specific information ill be more the glad to. If there is any questions you want me to ask ill do that as well.

    Thanks for the offering! I might send you a PM soon.
