No One Will Hear The Colonial Marines Scream…Except For You

To say that this game has been to the farthest reaches of our universe and back could be considered an understatement. It has been announced, teased, and later vanished into nothingness. And what was once a certain anticipated title left a lot of fans wondering if Aliens: Colonial Marines had been canceled.

Well, next week, during E3, SEGA will show off Aliens: Colonial Marines once more, only this time we have a release date (Spring 2012). But another thing that should get fans of the films excited is that Colonial Marines is a sequel to the widely-popular Aliens movie. SEGA and Gearbox’s description of the upcoming title screams nothing but love and respect for the fiction created in the second movie.


Aliens: Colonial Marines begins with an ostensibly abandoned ship, the U.S.S. Sulaco, recovered in orbit around LV-426. Players lead a group of highly trained United States Colonial Marines as they board the deserted craft to uncover the fate of the crew. They will have to fight to survive unspeakable horrors and their own anxieties as they chase down the truth behind a galaxy-spanning deception that places humanity at the mercy of the most murderous and deadly species in the universe. Aliens: Colonial Marines features authentic environments, such as the surface of LV-426 and Hadley’s Hope, weapons inspired by the film series and is designed to provide an exhilarating and engaging new chapter in the Aliens universe.

Look for more information on Aliens: Colonial Marines next week, when the full game is unveiled once again at E3.

    If this is gonna be a sequel to the movie Aliens I’ll be interested to see how they tell the story.  Alien 3 picks up, what we assume, is right after Aliens.  I was always under the impression that the Sulaco was destroyed at the beginning of Alien 3 and was the reason why Ripley, Hicks, Newt and what remained of Bishop were all emergency evacuated while in cryo-sleep.

    • There was a fire in the sleeping quarters, but I didn’t think it ever explained if it spread throughout the ship, or if they were ejected as a precaution and the fire possibly contained by the onboard water hose 🙂
