Not much more than a name to go with previous confirmation
that Brothers in Arms
creator Gearbox is developing an Alien
FPS for Sega, as Game Informer
announces "Aliens: Colonial Marines
" as the cover story in it's new issue. The brief teaser copy
confirms that the game will be squad-based, ostensibly following some of the development cues from Gearbox's previous projects. The title alludes to the second film, Aliens
, and perhaps specifically to the 'United States Colonial Marines' who accompany Ripley when she returns to LV-426. It's unclear what, if any connection the game will have to that film or others within the series.
Sega's Alien license
currently covers Colonial Marines
and an Obsidian RPG
. Aliens: Colonial Marines
is slated for a 2009 release on PC and consoles.
