A search and rescue is sent out to the U.S.S Sulaco in search of Ellen Ripley and the rest of the missing marines who were dispatched to LV-426. But the search and rescue does not go to plan. And the crew sent out to rescue become the crew that need's to be rescue.
GameplayEditThe gameplay of Aliens Colonial Marines is a frist-person shooter. There is no HUD (Just like Dead Space) to tell you about health or ammo. You can give out orders to your AI teammates (Only one at a time) by context-sensitive commands. Unlike some Alien games using tactical positioning and turrets are used a lot to stop Alien attacks. Just like in the other Alien games, the Aliens will try to outflank the player. You and your teammates will have to work together to fight the Aliens without getting sneak up on. Iron sights have been put in place to make it easy for new comers to play the game. But many of the hardcore fans did not want the iron sights. 'There didn't need them before and most of the new comers go back to there old games like COD' said a fan on YouTube. Quick time events are used when a facehugger jumps onto your face.
Online multiplayer will allow up to four players to play cooperatively. Split Screen holds up to two players. (Sage said) Competitive multiplayer modes will be put into the game like Team Deathmatch will be put in place. But there said it will be a lot like based on the "Gloom" mod of Quake II.
