Sega have released a new trailer for Aliens: Colonial Marines, focusing on the multiplayer and tactical aspect of the newest entry in the Aliens franchise.
Teaming together with Gearbox Software, the team-orientated shooter is demonstrated in this latest trailer, showing selected special abilities from both the Marine and Xenomorph side. Watch the various tactical choices that players need to make when playing the game’s competitive, asymmetrical multiplayer.
Marines have a plethora of different weapons at their disposal, from the classic pulse rifle to the iconic flamethrower, from the smart gun and legendary weapons to explosives and assault rifle. All are fully customizable, just like the multiplayer characters, and all are selectable in your load out.
Certain weapons are great for close combat in tight environments but you might want to watch for sneak attacks when cornered. Xenomorph players can choose from 3 different classes when going into battle – Soldier, Lurker or Spitter – each with their own customizable attacks and looks.
Watch the multiplayer trailer below:
Aliens: Colonial Marines is due out February 12th, 2013 for Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, Wii U and Windows PC.
