Monday Sega uploaded a video clip shot during E3 2011 back in June showing actual gameplay footage from Aliens: Colonial Marines. The demo lasts just over 11 minutes and features a voice-over narration by Gearbox Software head honcho, Randy Pitchford.
As previously reported, the game is a direct sequel to the 1986 movie ALIENS written and directed by James Cameron and starring Sigourney Weaver as Ellen Ripley. If the game follows the ALIEN canon, we won't see any signs of Ripley, but as the demo footage reveals below, gamers get to return to LV-426 and the demolished colony.
As heard in the clip below, Pitchford is amusingly giddy about tromping through the remnants of a virtial alien-ridden set from what most of us know and love as the best ALIEN movie in the franchise. Cross your fingers this won't be just another ALIENS game, but something truly amazing.
