Aliens: Colonial Marines is being done up like a big-budget game with all the trimmings -- including a Collector's Edition, pre-order bonuses, and apparently, a season pass. A retail site mentioned the pass for PC, which includes four packs in all.

A GameStop listing (via Polygon) shows the pass for a MSRP of $29.99. It boasts this price is a 33% discount from buying the four packs individually, as they come between March and summer. The DLC for the game will include "campaign content, additional multiplayer maps, new modes, character customization and more."

This listing is only for the PC version, but season passes tend to come to all platforms, so we wouldn't be surprised to see it on other platforms as well.

      A co-op game taking inspiration from L4D is all I ask for. Something simple and straightforward but fun.

        L4d still today looks better then this game... Don't buy into these money grabs of DLC packs... Knowing them they will have other crap NOT included just to milk you idiots more...

          It's baffling to me that more games haven't blatantly ripped off Left 4 Dead. It's such a well designed game that works for both single and multiplayer. Seems like it would be moneyhats to slap your own IP on the basic l4d structure and release it.

      When do you think the 1st reviews will hit? That's all I'm waiting for really.

      Leary about DLC packs with new multiplayer maps since the last AvP game. Virtually none of the atill-active servers run these map packs, effectively making them a total waste of money. Those that do effectively segregate the players and you end up watching half the players in a session drop off because they don't own the content.

        I have not been happy with the P2P setup. If they had dedicated servers I'd be in, Not falling for another Space Marine. BUT!!! I have a strong feeling this game is going to tank hard. And I even pre-ordered ( at a huge discount, but I pre-ordered). So season pass might be moot anyway.

          I'll reserve judgment until I see how the game fares with the gamer base. Sega's support for the last AvP game was shit and the DLC packs were ultimately a waste of money, particularly once the server populations died out (although there's still a small number of very active servers running). At this stage, I'm not going to plunk down money on DLC for a game that isn't even released yet. Plus there'll always be the inevitable Steam sales down the line, so I see no hurry to buy DLC packs in advance right now.

      I love all the photochopping they are doing with this games screenshots. When it's in motion it looks awful....

        agreed, the graphis are pretty basic looking. animations and voice acting look just as poor

          I hate it when voice acting doesn't look good. I also dislike basic Gravis gamepads.
