I for one am absolutely stoked for SEGA & Gearbox’s Aliens: Colonial Marines, yes it has been a very long time coming and at one point I almost gave up hope, but, the game is coming and on February 12, 2013, we will be able to witness the horrors on Xbox 360, PS3 and PC.
In the meantime, we have just scored a brand new trailer which takes a look at the multiplayer mode, and while the game looks a little dated, at least by today’s standards, I’m all for it.
The game is also said to be released on the Wii U, but a release date is unknown at this time.
