A Surprise Glimpse At Aliens Colonial Marines

Gearbox Software's Randy Pitchford doesn't want you to think that the house of Borderlands and Duke Nukem Forever forgot about their Aliens game. To reassure us the project is alive, his team flashed screenshots of it at Gearbox's PAX panel.

Aliens Colonial Marines is a Gearbox-developed Aliens shooter of some sort that's been whispered about for a a couple of years but been just about invisible to an eager gaming public.

Pitchford said that his studio is continuing to work with Aliens movie studio 20th Century Fox and Aliens games publisher Sega to bring the project along. But he wasn't able to say anything about how or when the game will come out. He did tease the audience with some Aliens Colonial Marines art, though. People, do you want this game?

(I snapped these images from an extreme angle, as I was seated close but far to the right. Apologies for some perspective distortion.)


    YESSS finally real colonial marines with proportionate soldiers, not some BS AvP marines.

    Interesting to see that in the last shot there is a firefight between humans. THIS COULD BE THE F'ING best COOP GAME EVER!!!!

      That will depend entirlely on whether or not this Alien related game ships with dedicated server support :P

    I wanted this game over AVP!!! Goddamn it Sega you are fricken morons. THIS is the game you should be putting your dollar behind!

    If they're still planning on doing 4-player split-screen co-op on consoles I'll pick it up no matter what the reviews say.

      It is ridiculous how many games don't do this. Or have a 4 player co-op, but if you want to system link you can only have 1 person per console.

      I really feel like the split screen side of gaming is being left behind as everyone focuses on competitive multiplayer. Which is a pity because I would take split screen over online multiplayer anytime.

        Exactly. I hated the fact that when I was playing my 360 on a LAN we got pretty restricted and forced to play Halo and little else.

        Fingers crossed for Black Ops too though, they seem to be paying attention to everybody so far.

          I'm telling you, that's one thing they won't bring in for Black Ops for a number of a reasons.

    About time we heard something! WOOT!
