Aliens: Colonial Marines Contact trailer is one of the bleakest and best
SEGA have published a new 2-and-a-half minute long CGI trailer for the upcoming PC, Xbox 360 and PS3 February 12th release of Aliens: Colonial Marines.
The trailer is one long tracking shot dropping from deck to deck of the USS Sulaco, capturing the horrors of marine vs. alien warfare in beautiful slow-motion. On each floor a different battle plays out, starting with simple gun battles against the Xenomorphs and progressively getting more intense as the marines use flamethrowers and face off against an alien queen.
While the trailer doesn’t show any gameplay footage it does capture the feeling of the Alien universe perfectly. With series mainstays like hyper sleep freezers, Xenomorphs dripping acid blood and marines fumbling in terror for their weapons as the aliens swarm around them. If the game can replicate this feeling as well as the trailer does, and judging from the multiplayer hands-on I had last year it will, then Aliens: Colonial Marines may be one of the most atmospheric games of all time.
Aliens: Colonial Marines is to be released on PC, Xbox 360 and PS3 on February the 12th. The Wii U version release date is still yet to be announced.
