Aliens: Colonial Marines has some mighty hopes and dreams resting upon its shoulders. Not only is it the next game from Gearbox Software (creator of El33tonline’s Game of the Year, Borderlands 2), but it’s also the next first-person shooter based in the beloved and storied ‘Alien’ universe.
The last game that was tangentially related to this franchise was Aliens VS Predator from Rebellion which, while not an outstanding game, handled the marine campaign pretty well. That title was released in February 2010, and Aliens: Colonial Marines is also due for a February release, only three years later – has time done the franchise any good?
We’re desperately hoping that all of the time and effort that’s gone into the creation of Aliens: Colonial Marines has been worth it, and this TV commercial for the game goes some way towards putting our concerns to rest – we’ll have to wait and see when the game is out on February 12th:
