Aliens: Colonial Marines has Gone Gold, Deploys on February 12th

The hype train for Aliens: Colonial Marines has been moving along pretty slowly as of late, which is a bad thing when it’s sandwiched between titles like Dead Space 3 and Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance, but it might start up again as Gearbox has announced that it has gone gold and will release on February 12th.

If you’ve forgotten what Colonial Marines is all about, this story trailer will jog your memory:

There’s still time to pre-order both the regular and collector’s editions of the game, with GameStop offering an exclusive Competitive Multiplayer pack that includes the following:

  • Four playable movie characters: Private Hudson, Corporal Hicks, Private Drake, Sergeant Apone
  • Additional character customization option
  • Ripley’s flamethrower
