SEGA has provided us with the first demo walkthrough of Aliens: Colonial Marines. This footage, narrated by Randy Pitchford, President of Gearbox Software, offers an in-depth first look at what you can expect when you step into the boots of a Colonial Marine and take on the menacing Alien threat next year.

Aliens: Colonial Marines will bring new levels of bone-chilling suspense and adrenaline-filled action to the renowned franchise. The game pits players against the universe's ultimate alien killing machines, the Xenomorphs, in claustrophobic environments guaranteed to produce blood curdling thrills that the movie is renowned for.

Aliens: Colonial Marines begins with an ostensibly abandoned ship, the U.S.S. Sulaco, recovered in orbit around LV-426. Players lead a group of highly trained United States Colonial Marines as they board the deserted craft to uncover the fate of the crew. They will have to fight to survive unspeakable horrors and their own anxieties as they chase down the truth behind a galaxy-spanning deception that places humanity at the mercy of the most murderous and deadly species in the universe. Aliens: Colonial Marines features authentic environments, such as the surface of LV-426 and Hadley's Hope, weapons inspired by the film series and is designed to provide an exhilarating and engaging new chapter in the Aliens universe.

Aliens: Colonial Marines is scheduled for release in 2012 on the Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and PC.

Hmm... I had always assumed that Hadley's Hope itself would be completely destroyed from the fact that "this whole station is basically a big fusion reactor".

I had figured if they were to bring the story back to LV426, it would be about the alien ship and/or surrounding landscape of the planet, not the actual colony.

I've played gearbox's Half Life:Opposing Force sequel for years and have absolute faith in this game version of the Aliens Universe, and I absolutely love the bullets "tracer" fire effects.
