A new multiplayer mode from Aliens: Colonial Marines is shown off a bit in this trailer that was released over the the weekend. Check it here:
The mode seems to have a Left 4 Dead vibe, where players in the role of the marines are heading to an extraction point while fighting off a horde of xenos, some of which are controlled by opposing players. I still feel that this ignores the biggest complaint about trying to make a game in the Alien mythos- that the xenos should be a terrifying sight that most people run from as opposed to planting your feet and mowing them down. But if they’re already going down this route, they might as well make a horde mode as well.
Aliens: Colonial Marines is scheduled for a February 12, 2013 release date on Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, Windows and Wii U.
