Aliens: Colonial Marines – E3 Demo Footage

When Aliens: Colonial Marines was shown to the press behind closed doors at E3 2011 it seemed to be very well received. Now the rest of us unworthy peons can finally all see why. Narrated by Gearbox’s Randy Pitchford here is a walkthrough of Aliens: Colonial Marines second missions as shown at E3.

Any Aliens fan can tell you that the guys at Gearbox have gone above and beyond to recreate the world and atmosphere of the Aliens movie. With online drop-in Co-Op for up to 4 players I hope for some intence fire-fights with my friends.

I think the game looks beautiful, the graphics are great and the atmosphere seems authentic. If I have one small complaint it would be with the fire and muzzle flash effects looking a bit dated and the tracer bullets looking a bit bulky and cartoonish. Otherwise, everything looks superb and I can’t wait to get my hands on it!

From this first look Aliens: Colonial Marines looks as though it’s shaping up to be something special, fingers crossed!

    i lost any interest i had for the game, looks incredibly boring!
    the shooting doesn’t feel good with really poor animation too!

    The animation is fine, not great but good enough, but the animation blending needs a lot of work. They pop from cycle to cycle like this is an indie title. I’m pretty sure they’ll sort that out before it releases.

    It looks dumb though that most of the Aliens just run up to you, stand there and swat at you. That’s a pretty typical game behavior, but it looks awkward for this species.

    I loved Alien Trilogy on the Saturn, and this looks a ton better than that.
