Get ready: Aliens: Colonial Marines has gone gold

Many people never thought this day would come, but Gearbox Software has confirmed today that Aliens: Colonial Marines has gone gold. The video game sequel to the classic films is officially "finished"(ish), and has headed off to the printers to be copied out for PC, PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 - so it'll be in your hot little hands very soon.

A new blog post from Chris Faylor spells it out:

Today, we’re proud to announce that we hit every one of [our] targets, with the game's gold status indicating that all parties have examined the release candidate and signed off on the code as final and suitable for manufacturing, after which the game will be shipped to retail and propped to digital networks in time for launch on PC, PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 come February 12, 2013!

Faylor also recommends you double-check your Aliens: Colonial Marines pre-order is locked in with your preferred gaming retailer (don't want to miss those early-bird in-game goodies), and if you want it on PC, this sounds like a good time to figure out if you need to update your rig. Chances are you probably won't, with Gearbox managing to fit the entire epic into a package that doesn't require too many bells or whistles at all.
