'Aliens: Colonial Marines' is developed by Gearbox Software.
Video game publisher SEGA and developer Gearbox Software have released a brand new trailer for Aliens: Colonial Marines.
Showing a select number of special abilities on both the Xenomorph and the Marine side, the trailer gives players a glimpse at the various tactical choices that players need to make when playing the game's competitive, asymmetrical multiplayer.
Marines have a plethora of different weapons at their disposal, from the classic pulse rifle to the iconic flamethrower, from the smart gun and legendary weapons to explosives and assault rifle. All are fully customizable, just like the multiplayer characters, and all are selectable in your load out.
Certain weapons are great for close combat in tight environments but you might want to watch for sneak attacks when cornered. Xenomorph players can choose from three different classes when going into battle - Soldier, Lurker or Spitter - each with their own customizable attacks and looks.
Both sides might be different, but one thing is true either way: teamwork is key.
A video game sequel to the original 'Alien' movie from 1979, Aliens: Colonial Marines will be available in stores across the globe on February 12, 2013 on PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, and Windows PC. A release date for the announced Wii U version will be revealed at a later date.
The ESRB has rated this title as "M for Mature".
