Aliens: Colonial Marines box art bares its teeth

Pack shots revealed ahead of delayed autumn release

Sega has unveiled the rather slick-looking box art for Aliens: Colonial Marines.


The pack shot reveal follows the recent release of a new gameplay movie, a cinematic trailer, and the disappointing news that the PS3, Xbox 360 and PC game has been delayed from a spring launch to an autumn one.

According to Sega:

Aliens: Colonial Marines will bring new levels of bone-chilling suspense and adrenaline-filled action to the renowned franchise.

The game pits players against the universe's ultimate alien killing machines, the Xenomorphs, in claustrophobic environments guaranteed to produce blood curdling thrills that the movie is renowned for.

Aliens: Colonial Marines begins with an ostensibly abandoned ship, the U.S.S. Sulaco, recovered in orbit around LV-426. Players lead a group of highly trained United States Colonial Marines as they board the deserted craft to uncover the fate of the crew. They will have to fight to survive unspeakable horrors and their own anxieties as they chase down the truth behind a galaxy-spanning deception that places humanity at the mercy of the most murderous and deadly species in the universe. Aliens: Colonial Marines features authentic environments, such as the surface of LV-426 and Hadley's Hope, weapons inspired by the film series and is designed to provide an exhilarating and engaging new chapter in the Aliens universe.
