Game developer Gearbox (Borderlands) has recently released a trailer for their upcoming shooter Aliens: Colonial Marines, which is based on Ridley Scott’s popular Aliens property. Gearbox CEO Randy Pitchford also hints at the kinds of aliens that players will have to face when the game is released next year:
“Maybe in the films we didn’t see all the types [of Xenos],” Gearbox CEO/President Randy Pitchford says in the clip. “Maybe in the video game we can see more of these types.” This opens the door for all manner of enemies, but don’t worry, they also talk about the weapons you’ll be using to take them all out.
If the videos remind you a little bit of Bulletstorm, it’s because both games were made using the Unreal 3 engine, albeit Aliens: Colonial Marines has an updated renderer, hence its engine is referred to as the Red Ring engine.
Aliens: Colonial Marines hits Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, and PC on February 12, 2013.
