In the upcoming game Aliens: Colonial Marines, there will be a multiplayer game type called “Survivor.” No, Jeff Probst will not be sitting on some tropical island with a bunch of the marines. Instead, it’s a small team of marines attempting to work together to complete a series of objectives while xenomorphs attempt to kill them. It feels very similar to the Left 4 Dead style of multiplayer, with different styles of xenomorphs, but obviously the weaponry will be slightly more high-tech than Left 4 Dead’s pistol or electric guitar. As someone who hasn’t been paying a whole lot of attention to this game, I can say that the intensity of this trailer grabbed my attention and refused to let go of it until the very end.
Aliens: Colonial Marines is set to release on February 12, 2013 on the Xbox 360, PS3, Wii U, and PC.
Eric thinks it would be a lot of fun to run around and hunt down helpless little marines as a xenomorph.
