Aliens: Colonial Marines is a Sequel to the First Three Movies, Shows Trailer

    January 2, 2013

Videogames based on the Aliens universe have been notoriously sub-par in the past. With Aliens: Colonial Marines, Gearbox is attempting to give the franchise a videogame it can finally be proud of.

It remains to be seen whether the gameplay and design of the game will impress players, but it appears the developer has at least provided a relevant story. The new story trailer released over the holidays shows that the game is a direct sequel to the Aliens and Alien 3 movies.

Players will take on the role of marines who are investigating the strange reappearance of the spaceship U.S.S. Sulaco, last seen orbiting the planet Fury 161 in Alien 3.
