Drop in drop out 4 Player Co-Op

Progressive player XP through campaign and Multiplayer

3rd person control of Aliens in multi

ADS when playing as the marine

Cannon story which will have info on Hudson and some of my other favs from the movie Aliens.

As an Aliens geek and a gamer I could not be more hype for this game.

GAME OVER MAN GAME OVER!

I hope it's better than AvP was. Not that AvP was terrible... it just fell far short of its potential. That and the online community died within a week.

The matchmaking for AVP was terrible and it was horribly balanced which was the main reason the MP died. The game was OK, and fun to play as the Pred. Survival not counting towards multi progression was a big mistake as well.

I read a preview recently that likened playing as the marines to a survival horror experience that sounded really fun and intense. If this game has visuals like Rage in an Alien universe (which it looks like from screenshots), it could be great, I'm holding out hope.

Looks like it could be an awesome FPS. The gameplay videos I've seen look incredibly promising.

The human campaign in AvP was easily the best part of the game due to that survival-horror theme (it was also the longest and most coherent)... I hope it is expanded upon.

This game looks fun and scary. The co-op is awespme, too. You can kill aliens with your buddies.

There were some worrying previews for this game a while ago but it seems like every preview or thing they've shown since show this game slowly getting better and better.

I really hope this pulls a Batman AA where it is a game that is kinda on peoples radars working upto release and then right as the game comes out everyone realizes the game is everything they could have hoped for and more.

This is a game that actually wants me to be playing multiplayer since I really want to play as an Alien and hunt all you damn marines down.

Have you ever been skullfrucked by a marine while playing as an alien?

I will be sure to yell "GAME OVER MAN" before, during, and after every death. And while shooting, during loading screens, matchmaking, and pretty much every other time I know my mic is live, as well.

It's Gearbox and Aliens, so I've been fairly hopeful for it for a while now.

I also saw something about this being in development for the Wii U which could be real cool like using the motion tracking on the controller. I know it was part of Nintendo's E3 last year but there really hadnt been a mention about it on the Wii U since.

How can they cut the power, man? They're animals!

"Right, right. Someone said "alien"; she thought they said illegal alien and signed up!"

Will it have any cool H.R. Giger-esque scenery? That would make it day 1 for me. Love me some Giger art.

I saw a couple of screen shots that included those famous ribbed walls. The leathery eggs and the alien design itself were also from Giger.

Hudson: "Hey Vasquez, have you ever been mistaken for a man?"

Vasquez: "No. Have you?"
