Aliens Game This Year

First look at new Aliens game!A while back Sega announced two Aliens titles. One, a first person shooter based around the Colonial Marines from Gearbox Software, was slated for 2009. I remember doing a triple take over that when reading the press release, as it seemed ridiculously early to announce a game for 2009 so many years in advance. Well, Eurogamer is now saying that SEGA has revealed that the game is currently slated for a late 2008 release.

There have been a few screenshots circulating the internet, scanned from the upcoming issue of Game Informer magazine, and frankly they look pretty impressive. It shows good attention to detail and seems to indicate that we’ll be visiting a bunch of areas from the movies, recreated to the smallest detail.

Gearbox is no slouch at the FPS genre, so it shouldn’t come as a surprise that the game is looking so promising, but it’s wonderful to know that at least as far as the videogame side of things go, the franchise is in good hands.

You can read the full story (and find a link to those promising scans) over at the Eurogamer link!

    yeah dude, people did get excited over the red band AvP:R trailer… but there’s a few important facts. Gearbox have been putting out great FPS games for nearly a decade first and foremost. Half Life: Opposing forces through to the Brothers in Arms games, they know the genre.

    what we didn’t know before these screenshots was if they knew the films as well as they know their FPSs. the screens prove that they’ve got the look down perfect, and that we’ll be visiting some locations from the films recreated down to the finest details.

    still, Alien based games that are good aren’t that difficult to find. AvP Jag, AvP PC, and AvP 2 were all good in their own ways, though i still think AvP PC is the pinnacle… and i’m even pretty fond of Alien Trilogy to be honest. it’s a franchise that lends itself perfectly to gaming… and frankly, since Doom 3 showed what you could do with lights and shadows, we’ve been waiting for a new game in the franchise.
