In February 2008 I went to Gearbox in Texas to have an early first look at Aliens: Colonial Marines. Today, almost four years later, the game is scheduled for release at some point in 2012. This leaked collector’s edition, however, which features a pretty nifty power loader suit ala the one seen at the end of Aliens sort of lifts hopes that we’ll see the game in a timely fashion!
Gamekyo has stumbled across the above leaked image, which shows off a number of collectible things including the adore-mentioned power loader (not life sized, sadly).
SEGA has chosen not to confirm whether or not this is official, which seems a little silly to me considering the fact that, a) we are aware of the existence of this game, b) it’s just a collector’s announcement and c) it’s good publicity for a product they clearly want to sell.
Regardless — it looks like a pretty nifty package for fans of the Aliens franchise. Here’s hoping the game itself cuts the mustard.
