Signs are beginning to emerge that Aliens: Colonial Marines will - like so many other recent games - feature a season pass for downloadable content. Sega and Gearbox are currently keeping quiet on the topic, but retailers around the globe mention the feature in their official product blurbs, making this either an elaborate hoax, or an inevitable addition.
To soften the blow, here's a brand new trailer, showing off the game's tactical multiplayer elements (and yes, it's better than last week's efforts, we promise).
Hungry for more Aliens: Colonial Marines? Purchase the Aliens: Colonial Marines Season Pass and get access to four downloadable content packages at a 33% discount! All add-on content packs are scheduled to be released from March through to summer 2013. The Aliens: Colonial Marines Season Pass will give you access to campaign content, additional multiplayer maps, new modes, character customisation and more!
Meanwhile, how about that trailer? That's some tasty asymmetrical multiplayer on show there, together with the sort of tactical choices that you'll have to make within Aliens: Colonial Marines. Which side will you choose?
Marines have a whole bunch of weaponry at their fingertips, ranging from the classic pulse rifle and the iconic flamethrower to a smart gun, explosives and the inevitable assault rifle.
But the Xenomorphs are pretty enticing, too - three different classes, each with their own customisable looks and unique attacks. Pick a Soldier, a Lurker or a Spitter, and work on your sneak attacks (Marine weapons might be great, but those pesky humans don't react well when they're cornered...).
Aliens: Colonial Marines is due out on February 12th for PC, PS3 and Xbox 360 - a Wii U version is most definitely in the works, set to be released "at a later time".
I like video games and music and cups of tea and noodles and beagles and colour-cycling LEDs.
