New Aliens: Colonial Marines Video Takes You Inside The Hive

Gearbox Software's interpretation of the Alien hive is spot on: Eggs are scattered across the floor, humans are strung up in gooey sacks on the walls, and for whatever reason, this high-tech spaceship has a rusty fan with a flashing red light behind it.

Check out the video below to see Aliens: Colonial Marines' version of the hive in both concept and in-game forms.

We'll hopefully be able to flamethrower the living hell out of this room when the game hits PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, and PC on February 12. A Wii U version is also in development, but an exact release date has not been revealed.

  • Is this releasing on the Wii U on the same day?
  • Big lead in for an EXTREMELY SHORT video. Love the way they setup the new lighting system.
  • Thank you GI for getting rid of your video player.

    Edit. I mean no disrespect.
  • This game since the cover story was and has been one of my most anticipated. I am not a huge fan of Borderlands (mainly because I only like single player games) but they are very well made. The Brothers in Arms series is extremely underrated and I am very excited to play Aliens Colonial Marines.
  • Looking pretty good.

  • i feel aside from the developers that I am one of the few who know how the eggs got on the Sulaco...
  • This is looking great so far!

    Also, is the wretched video player gone for good now?

  • I really want this to be good! I hope they nail the atmosphere of the Aliens movie. Ive never really felt the franchise has got the videogame it deserves.
  • Awesome.

  • I really want this to be good as well... but less than a month away from release and this is the best they can offer as a tease?... haven't seen much in the way of single player in-game action... just makes me wonder if the developers are concerned. If the action was good, why not show a little bit more... past two teasers have been strictly static artwork... sets alert off in my pea brain.... was gonna pre-order, but think I will wait to hear some reviews... plenty of other great games coming to plop the $60 on.
  • Yaaay! No more GI video player!! (slowly starts to fist pump)
  • .. . . .............................
  • I hope this turns out good especially if it's coming from GearBox. I'm already getting my alien type fix anyways with Dead Space 3 when it comes out in Feb! :)

  • "Is this gonna be a standup fight... sir... or another bughunt?"
  • So, the game is based between Aliens and Alien 3, plotwise?

  • Still not impressed.  When I see some proof that acid blood hurts and burns through metal then, maybe. When you can shoot a zeno in the process of killing another and save the marines life, maybe.

    I've ben doubtfull of this since the demo walkthrough video aired with the voiceover.  Saw a lot of things that needed improvement and it kills me to see them ruin another Alien game.

  • Really looking forward to this one; I'm going to prepare by watching the Alien Anthology on blu-ray!
  • That is kind of a stupid video...I am looking forward to this game, but...come on.  It remimds me of the teaser ad for the EV-1 back in 1990s...implying terror and fear with nothing to show for it.

  • Will the pc version require steam?

  • One of my most anticipated for this year.
