New Aliens title to Feature 4 Player Co-Op

If there's one game that ever needed co-op, it was a game based on the Aliens franchise.  After previous games based on the series failed to deliver, it looks like Gearbox Software (Brothers in Arms, Half-Life Blue Shift) is ready to step up to the plate. 

 

The game is called Aliens: Colonial Marines and will be available for the Xbox 360, Playstation 3 and Windows PC late this year.  The story is being penned by famous authors Bradley Thompson and David Weddle, and its' a story that promises to drive a 4 player cooperative experience. 

Aliens: Colonial Marines will feature a story driven single-player mode and an all-new four player co-op mode allowing players to share the chilling experience with three friends. In co-op mode, each player will assume the persona of a United States Colonial Marine and have a distinct role to play in the completion of every mission.

Packing classic Aliens weaponry ranging from pulse rifles to flamethrowers as well as brand-new equipment and skills all within a squad-based combat system, players will become an elite United States Colonial Marine. Featuring claustrophobic environments, a brooding soundtrack, and a multitude of surprises and shocks, players will battle against menacing alien hordes in strikingly detailed levels that include the stark interiors of the abandoned Sulaco and unique environments created specifically for the game.

This has the potential to be really incredible.   Hopefully the 4 player co-op experience is available online...or GAME OVER MAN! GAME OVER!
