[b]Genre:[/b] First Person Shooter
[b]Format:[/b] Xbox 360 / PS3 / Windows / WiiU
[b]Developer:[/b] Gearbox Software
[b]Age Rating:[/b] 18+
February 12th 2013 sees the launch of the highly anticipated [b]Aliens: Colonial Marines[/b], a game promising to be the true sequel to [i]James Camerons[/i] 1986 movie [b]Aliens[/b]. Set on [b]LV-426[/b] shortly after the events of the aforementioned movie a team of [b]Colonial Marines[/b] investigate the remains of the [b]Hadleys Hope[/b] colony and of the derelict [b]Engineer Juggernaut[/b], while fending off relentless attacks from wave upon wave of [b]Xenomorphs[/b].
[b]Aliens: Colonial Marines[/b] will allow players to use all of the [i]Colonial Marines[/i] arsenal including the [b]M41a Pulse Rifle, Flamethrower, Smart Gun[/b] and the [b]Remote Sentry Turret[/b], while killing hordes of [b]Xenomorphs[/b], including some new, never before seen breeds. Furthermore, the game will feature drop in/drop out co-operative play, allowing players to freely drop in and out of another players online game.
The game lacks a HUD, requiring players to place their weapon aside to check their [b]Motion Tracker[/b] for the direction of incoming enemies, in a similar way to [i]Doom 3[/i]'s torchlight gameplay mechanics, thus players must deem when it is safe to check their [b]Motion Tracker[/b], and when it is not.
[b]Aliens: Colonial Marines[/b] uses the [i]Red Ring Engine[/i], which is in actuality the latest version of the [i]Unreal Engine[/i] AKA [i]UE3[/i] (which also powers the forthcoming [url=http://www.scified.com/community/forums/topic/37]Gears of War: Judgment[/url]), with a new renderer that allegedly allows for more dynamic lighting and shadowing in game.
Feel free to discuss anything [b]Aliens: Colonial Marines[/b] related in this thread, favorite character(s), favorite weapon(s), favorite enemies(s), anything...
