Aliens: Colonial Marines has gone gold

Aliens-Colonial-Marines1Gearbox Software just announced that Aliens: Colonial Marines have finally gone gold for Playstation 3, Xbox 360, and PC. This will be the first Aliens game placed on the same timeline as the movies.

Nothing can stop it now. Gearbox has approved the final build and is now being manufactured. Colonial Marines was first announced in 2008, so this game has been in development for years. Thanks to the constant delays with SEGA and Gearbox Software, this is one game that was highly considered cancelled.

One feature that got me excited for this game is that there will be no HUD (Heads Up Display). No minimap, no ammo indicator, just your gun and the iconic motion sensor. I'm really hoping this game comes out great, we need a decent Aliens game out in the wild.

Aliens: Colonial Marines comes out worldwide on February 12, for Playstation 3, Xbox 360, and PC.
