'Aliens: Colonial Marines' (ALL) Goes Gold

by Rainier on Jan. 16, 2013 @ 7:14 p.m. PST

Based on the Aliens movie, Aliens: Colonial Marines is a squad-based first-person shooter where players are part of a United States Colonial Marine squad and must prepare to face an Aliens assault more intense and horrific than ever before.

Aliens: Colonial Marines is a first-person shooter set after the events of "Aliens" and is designed to provide an exhilarating and engaging new chapter in the Aliens universe. Players blast their way through hordes of Xenomorphs on the USS Sulaco, the surface of LV-426 and Hadley's Hope, using weapons inspired by the film series.

Gearbox Software issued the following statement:

When we first announced the release date for Aliens: Colonial Marines back in May 2012, Gearbox Software CEO Randy Pitchford noted that the development had progressed to the point where we could see the end and be very confident in both our vision for the game as well as our launch date.

Today, we’re proud to announce that we hit every one of those targets, with the game's gold status indicating that all parties have examined the release candidate and signed off on the code as final and suitable for manufacturing, after which the game will be shipped to retail and propped to digital networks in time for launch on PC, PS3 and X360 come February 12, 2013!

Now's the time to make sure you've got your pre-order locked in as participating retailers are offering in-game bonus content -- check with your local retailers and visit this page for more details.

Stay frosty, the next chapter in the Aliens story is almost here. Will you be able to fight the fear?
