SEGA and Gearbox Software have announced that the first-person shooter Aliens: Colonial Marines will be in stores worldwide on February 12, 2013.
“I am thrilled to announce the definitive launch date for Aliens: Colonial Marines,” said Randy Pitchford, President of Gearbox Software. “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.”
In partnership with Twentieth Century Fox, Aliens: Colonial Marines promises new levels of suspense and action to the renowned franchise. Colonial Marines begins with an ostensibly abandoned ship, the U.S.S. Sulaco, recovered in orbit around LV-426. Players lead a group of United States Colonial Marines as they board the deserted craft to uncover the fate of the crew. They will have to fight to survive unspeakable horrors and their own anxieties as they chase down the truth behind a galaxy-spanning deception that places humanity at the mercy of the most murderous and deadly species in the universe.
Aliens: Colonial Marines will be available in stores on PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, and Windows PC. A release date for the Wii U version will be revealed at a later time.
