Gearbox may be relaxing for a bit now that Borderlands 2 has gone gold and is just days away from release, but that doesn’t mean we all can’t get excited for the developer’s 2013 cooperative title, Aliens: Colonial Marines.
The first-person shooter has been in development for a pretty crazy amount of time at this point, yet with a solid release date of February 12, 2013, it seems like we can finally look forward to jumping into the mind of an Alien.
Well, playing as a marine is an option, too. Pre-ordering the game will net you Aliens characters Hicks, Hudson, Drake and Apone in multiplayer. The ability to customize your marine’s arsenal and wield Ripley’s flamethrower will also be included if you drop money on the game now, and the trailer below shows all of that extra fun in action.[youtube id=”GYeLUsuYZGI” width=”620″ height=”360″]
