Gearbox has announced that the release date for Aliens: Colonial Marines will be on February 12th, 2013 for the X-Box 360, PS3 and PC. A Wii-U version is confirmed for a later release. The first person shooter is being called the true sequel to James Cameron’s Aliens.
The games campaign could be played either single or co-operatively and will also feature competitive multiplayer. The game starts with the marines boarding the U.S.S. Sulaco to find out what’s happened to the crew, before all hell breaks loose.
“I am thrilled to announce the definitive launch date for Aliens: Colonial Marines.” says President of Gearbox Randy Pitchford. ”Aliens: Colonial Marines is the culmination of a life-time of inspiration from the films and relentless passion and drive from the exceptionally talented development team behind the scenes.”
