Looks good to me!  It should be nicely polished by next Autumn.

Aliens: Colonial Marines Delayed to 2013, New Trailer to Soften Blow

[Update]

Gearbox boss Randy Pitchford has issued a statement on Aliens: Colonial Marines, directly addressing fan concerns over the game's repeated delays and long development time.

"At the beginning of this effort a few years ago," he said, "as the business was in place to allow for the effort, everyone was excited. 20th Century Fox and Sega immediately shared the news with a press release that announced that Gearbox would be making a game in the franchise with these goals in mind. Later, the game was revealed with details and a title, Aliens: Colonial Marines, on the cover of Game Informer magazine. At that moment, we had finished our prototypes and were eager to test our promise against fans and then set real production in motion.

"We've remained true to our vision. We've been committed to it, through and through. We've always prioritized the goals we had for the game over any particular launch window. The game's development has been invigorating and natural relative to our experience making games and the objectives for it. Because the game was 'announced' with that original press release, it might feel, to those of you who have been waiting for the game since then, that it has been in development a long time. In fact, with the release date now set, it turns out that the total development time we have spent creating Aliens: Colonial Marines is about the same length of time as we had spent creating the original Borderlands or the original Brothers in Arms - both games that we had waited to announce until we were much farther along in the development process.

"If you have had that feeling that you've been waiting a long time, then today should be a good day for you! We have an official, solid launch date for the game! We're now at a point in development when we can see the end - we know what's left to do and can sufficiently quantify it to be very confident in the schedule for the game's completion and commercial release!"

[Original Story]

Oh man, Aliens: Colonial Marines has been delayed. Again.

Initially due to get xenomorphtastic this Autumn, Gearbox's shooter will now hit on 12th February 2013. Which is very disappointing. There is, however, a new gameplay trailer to accompany the revised date, putting a smile on our little Pulse Rifle deprived faces.

"I am thrilled to announce the definitive launch date for Aliens: Colonial Marines," said Gearbox boss Randy Pitchford. "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."

Sega's senior vice president of marketing for Sega Europe and Sega of America, Gary Knight, added, "We knew this game would be incredible from the moment Gearbox began developing Aliens: Colonial Marines. Now that the title is in its final stretch of development, we can confidently release the exact date that gamers will finally get to experience this blockbuster thrill-ride."

Aliens: Colonial Marines Collector's Edition Officially Hugs Your Face

Originally spied back in January of this year, SEGA has now officially revealed the Aliens: Colonial Marines Collector's Edition, which bundles the game with a resin figurine of a powerloader wrestling a xenomorph, a USCM Dossier containing a Mission Brief, USS Sephora Schematic, Recruitment Card, LV-426 Recon Photo, USCM Iron-on Badges and a USCM Graduation Certificate, and a bunch of DLC.

The DLC includes four playable movie characters - Cpl. Hicks, Sgt. Apone, Pvt. Hudson and Pvt. Drake - Ripley's Flamethrower, additional Marine customisation items, the USCM Acadamy Firing Range level, a Phase Plasma Rifle and some Sonic Electronic Ball Breakers. This is all crammed into a Collector's Edition 'xeno hive' box.

If the Collector's Edition all seems a bit much, then a pre-order from GameStop will net you the four movie characters, Ripley's Flamethrower and the additional Marine customisation items. You can check it all out in the images below. Aliens: Colonial Marines is out on February 12th, 2013.

Wow.  I'd be lying if I said I didn't want that powerloader statue, but my closet of abandoned "Collector's Edition" swag is full.

I will be reordering the regular edition though.   :)

I prefer to look at it as a view behind the creative process, and that might of course depend on the project. ;)

Sega Reveals Aliens: Colonial Marines' New Escape Mode



Sega and Gearbox have announced a new mode for the upcoming Aliens: Colonial Marines. In Escape, players team up in squads of four to race through a map, destroying as many xenomorphs as possible or making it to the escape point alive.

The companies aren't providing any other details at this point, but it will be playable at PAX, which starts tomorrow in Seattle. If you're in the neighborhood, stop by Sega's booth (#s 242 and 252). You can also get your picture taken inside a special 16-foot replica of the powerloader that punched the queen in the face. Even if you're not interested in Aliens, you should swing by. Guaranteed, someone will fall out of that thing and it will be absolutely hilarious.
