Aliens: Colonial Marines – Contact trailer

If you’re looking for game play footage or story-related imagery from the latest trailer for Gearbox’s Aliens: Colonial Marines you’ll be somewhat disappointed. However, if you’re a fan of concept trailers that set a tone for what the studio is going for then this trailer will work for you.

The game is a squad-based first-person shooter in which the player controls a squad of four colonial marines. The player controls one marine at a time but can switch between them at any time. There is a multiplayer aspect but at the moment it seems to be co-op only though Gearbox has mentioned a more competitive mode within the multiplayer.

Aliens: Colonial Marines doesn’t have a specific release date beyond Fall 2012. The game will be on PC, Playstation 3 and Xb0x 360.
