New Trailer Accompanies The Announcement
In a statement on the Gerboxity website, Gearbox Software CEO Randy Pitchford has announced that Aliens: Colonial Marines finally has a global release date. Sadly though, we’ll be waiting a little while longer before we’re able to put a pulse rifle in our hands again.
February 12th 2013 is the release date, and while Pitchford was sympathetic towards those that feel they have been waiting a long time for the game to come out, he stated the wait will have been worth it, with Gearbox having used the development time creating a game that is an “authentic” experience in the Aliens universe that would “complement, but not re-tell the events of, the films.”
The trailer that accompanies the announcement is looking mighty fine indeed, consisting of 100% in-game footage and giving us a taste of what to expect when we clash with the Xenomorphs next year. The wait might disappoint some, but at least we definitely have a launch date now. You can read Pitchford’s statement in full here.
