I remember back in the 90s when the Aliens Doom total conversion mod was probably one of the coolest things ever. It used sound effects and graphics from the movie Aliens to turn Doom into what was, at the time, the only real Colonial Marines game where you could fight off the xenomorphs in the FPS. In the years since that mod, Rebellion has given us some Aliens vs Predator games that allowed you to play as a Colonial Marine, but it still wasn’t a pure “Aliens” game.
Enter Gearbox Software with Aliens: Colonial Marines, and we finally get the game Aliens Doom taunted us with. Sega has released a new gameplay trailer for the game today, most likely due to PAX Prime this weekend, and it gives us a bit of the back story of how it’s about a battalion of Marines sent to find out what happened to the Sulaco. Lots of xenomorph-on-Marine action in this trailer, and it looks absolutely awesome.
