Nice pics and footage, this is a must have for any Aliens fan. The co-op is going to be brilliant, I wonder if we'll have some forum member get togethers like we did with AVP? would be ace.

I've been waiting for this for a long time!

 

Competitive multiplayer from what I've seen looks too much like Alien Vs Predator MP and I really didn't enjoy that, I will try it but I don't hold out much hope!

 

The campaign/co-op is what I'm looking forward to most, if it plays as good as it looks then we are in for a treat! I just hope that again SP/co-op this doesn't turn out to be another Alien Vs Predator, the campaign on that was ok but it wasn't nowhere near as good as it looked before release in my opinion.

 

At the end of the day though, fans of the films like I am will find it hard to resist good or bad.

Really looking forward to seeing what Gearbox can do with this franchise...AvP was a joke compared to its PC Legacy..hoping for good things with this game, one of the few titles I am genuinely looking forward to this year

I tried the multiplayer demo for AvP but wasn't all that impressed by it, so decided not to get it.

I'm interested in what happens in the campaign of this game though, as it is a direct sequel to Aliens.  Hopefully they don't *** it up.  So far the gameplay seems pretty standard though.

Apparently the word, sc(rew) is now a swear word that is blocked off these forums. -.-

I think the trouble these days mate that most FPS seem pretty standard because there's so many of them! so it that sense I do agree with you in that it does look pretty run of the mill gameplay.

 

For me though what makes it a must buy is the fact that I am a MASSIVE fan of the films so to get a chance to play a part in the story just after Aliens, I say bring it on, if it does turn out to be a complete flop there won't be many more dissapointed than me, I'm keeping the faith though :)

 

Really. Can't. Wait. : )

Some more new footage :

I know what you mean.  I'll be pretty annoyed if it's a disappointing game, especially if they have and awful story, because it's killing a great and classic series.  The AvP movies for example are just awful, i'd wish they'd never made them, and i'll feel the same about this game if it's a let down.

@ GULLEN .... Cheers for video mate, it does look very good indeed and I never tire of hearing the sound of the  pulse rifle firing, kind of sad that no matter what phone's I have I always download it as my ring or txt tone lol.

 

@ 1337 ... It would be shocking if they mess the story up with this, sometimes, not just with the Alien series I wish they would just leave things be, like I said before though I am keeping the faith!

Gearbox have yet to make a bad move, especially after Borderlands...happy to give them the benefit of the doubt
