    For many games, features like new weapons are usually unlockable or available for public download later but things like skins (Vaszuez, Hudson, etc.) and the customization options may not be available.

    It appears that Gamestop just got extra codes for some of the material in the Collector's Edition.  When I searched the title below, the Collector's Edition doesn't come with any preorder bonus, it appears that that is already packaged in with the set.  However, the Collector's Edition does come with some DLC that the preorder bonus does not have, specifically the Firing Range level and the Plasma Pulse Rifle and Sonic Ball Breakers upgrades.

    Confused!!(!)

    If I pre-order now on Amazon.co.uk, do I get Hicks/Apone skins etc?

    I'm aware of more goodies in the collector's edition, but I don't see anything anywhere on game retail sites - about the extras for any pre-order?
  4. Chris!(($$))!
    I am guessing that at the most, we will be able to see the Space Jockey in the Derelict with his mask removed and some lab equipment (Weyland Yutani) set up nearby him. It will basically resemble a big mummy with no wrapping. Thats my guess.
  5. Xenomrph
    And of course the game won't connect directly to 'Prometheus' plot-wise. I'd be really curious how it even could. :P

    But including elements introduced in the movie? I could totally see them doing that.
  6. SM
    Don't see how.  Pitchford hinted a few months back that there might be a Prometheus link, that he didn't want to spoil.

    You're talking about interviews that definitiveely state otherwise - where are they?
  7. Predaker
    I'm not going to dig up the specific interviews; you can do that if you wish. They have been pretty explicit in saying that there is no direct connection between A:CM and Prometheus.
  8. SM
    This doesn't sound like a "no".

    Quote
    PSB: Are you excited to see Prometheus? Will any of the Space Jockey lore hinted at in the film make it into Aliens: Colonial Marines?

    RP: I’m very excited about Prometheus. 20th Century Fox invited us to read the script and check out production and ACM’s director, Brian Martel, had a discussion with Ridley Scott about the matter years and years ago, so it’s been a really interesting seat for us on this one. A bunch of our guys went out to read the script a while back. I chose to decline because I didn’t want the spoilers — I can’t wait to see the final film! Ridley is such a master storyteller and filmmaker and I’m thrilled that he’s spending some more time in science fiction. Oh, and I haven’t dodged your real question. Yes, ACM will bring you inside The Derelict on LV-426. I don’t want to spoil anything, so I’ll leave it at that!

  9. Predaker
    That's the impression I got from some of the interviews when they were asked if the game would connect to Prometheus and they basically say no. They happen at two completely separate times and won't have a direct relation.
  10. SM
    Yeah.  They've been giving blatant hints there'll be some Prometheus content in there.

    Whether they have the license to do so, I'm not sure.  Maybe that's contributing to the hold up.
  11. Predaker
    Not really... one is a side scroller, and the other is the official canonical sequel. They both happen in the same "time-frame" (the time of the colonial marines) but they aren't really related other than that.
  12. SM
    And conflicts with how the Sephora is detailed in sister game Aliens Infestation.  :laugh:

    Mikey Neumann in a recent interview has stated that Aliens: CM and Aliens Infestation are not related. At one point I think Aliens: Infestation closely resembled what A:CM was going to be in its early stages, but I think there is no longer a connection besides some of locations and names. Not saying it isn't somewhat confusing, but that's just what on of the developers official statements.

    Interesting.  And flies in the face of the interview ikarop did.  I wondered how they were going to tie them together since they both seem to cover similar ground and timeframe.  And Infestation leaves the Sulaco clearly not in a position or condition we find it in CM.

    Obvious proof that someone really has a strong hand on the continuity...  :laugh:

    Hell yeah, that's the one. :) If they'd included a high-quality print of that similar to the Nostromo one that came with the Alien book, I don't think anybody would be complaining.
  15. Xenomrph
    Didn't what's-his-name who did the Nostromo schematics (that got lifted for the recent 'Alien' movie book that came out last year) also do Sulaco schematics? If they'd used his schematics as the Sephora that would have been pretty damn awesome.
