Games giant SEGA have revealed details of their highly anticipated squad-based first-person shooter based on the hit Aliens franchise.
In Aliens: Colonial Marines -� available on the Xbox 360, PLAYSTATION 3 and PC from late 2008 – players are part of a United States Colonial Marine squad and must prepare to face an alien assault more intense and horrific than ever before.
Featuring an original story by writers Bradley Thompson and David Weddle Aliens: Colonial Marines promises to retain the atmospheric look and feel of the original films while leveraging next-generation technology to create an entirely new interactive Aliens experience.
Packing classic Aliens weaponry ranging from pulse rifles to flamethrowers as well as brand-new equipment and skills all within a squad-based combat system, players will become an elite United States Colonial Marine. Featuring claustrophobic environments, a brooding soundtrack, and a multitude of surprises and shocks, players will battle against menacing alien hordes in strikingly detailed levels that include the stark interiors of the abandoned Sulaco and unique environments created specifically for the game.
Sega say the game will feature a story driven single-player mode and an all-new four player co-op mode allowing players to share the chilling experience with three friends. In co-op mode, each player will assume the persona of a Colonial Marine and have a distinct role to play in the completion of every mission. Additionally, more multiplayer modes will be revealed later in the year that will complete the Aliens video game experience.
