Aliens: Colonial Marines debut trailer leaks

The debut trailer for Aliens: Colonial Marines has hit the Web, showing off a first glimpse of the game in action.

UPDATE - The YouTube trailer is actually not a leak, but rather pulled from this GameSpot exclusive.

ORIGINAL STORY - Aliens: Colonial Marines has gotten its debut trailer, featuring confused and stranded marines who are then inevitably picked off and devoured like fleshy little hors d'oeuvres. The game appears to feature a not-insignificant amount of head-biting, but the aliens spill their share of green blood as well.

The trailer hit YouTube (via OXM), which may mean that Sega didn't quite mean for it to get out so early. If you want to see some hot alien on human action, you may want to hit the "Play" button toot sweet.

      main they've nailed the tone, i hope all the aliens (movie) sound effects and score make it into the game. glad they've got welding too, part of the rush was welding a door shut in time

        why not? if one got too close to me, that's what I'd do. (read: every goddamn thing in my power not to have my face bitten off)

      so is this going to play like Left4Aliens? Because if it does then I may be interested, but if it's your standard single player with mulitplayer team deathmatch then that'll be a missed opportunity.

      hells yes. if they can capture even half the tension from the original games Marine campaigns it will be excellent.

        AvP 1 and 2's marine campaigns are literally the scariest games I've ever played

              Yeah... I couldn't play more than 15 minutes of it before I felt like my chest was going to burst.

              The way they did the facehugger is genius. It's the silence before the jump that you dread the most.

          The motion tracker sound pretty much makes it incredibly scary. Seriously if you turn the sound off it's not scary thats just how good audio is at freaking you out.

          AvP 1 (and just a bit less in 2) Marine campaign were so goddamn stressfull! You basically had to run for your life the entire time, always listening to the pings of the motion detector like a terrified animal

        surprised they haven't made a movie sequel with the same formula - marines kicking alien ass

      Seeing this reminded me of AvP2... and thinking of that reminded me how much I LOVED that game.
