Aliens: Colonial Marines’ Escape Mode Preview & Trailer

Destructoid has an article look Escape Mode in the upcoming Aliens: Colonial Marines. Here’s a look at part of their preview:

“Not unlike Left 4 Dead’s Versus Mode, Escape Mode in Aliens Colonial: Marines is a 4v4 mode, tasking four marines with coordinating and surviving the onslaught of xenomorphs, four of which are player controlled. Also similar to Left 4 Dead is the extreme dependence you and your teammates will have on one another.

Escape is a co-op mode in the truest sense. If you try to run solo, whether as a marine or xenomorph, you will get wrecked. One look at the pants-wetting maps you’ll be playing on, and you probably won’t want to run solo anyhow.”

Browser crashed near the end. I really find it hard to believe that they STILL have not announced what games will be available on launch day. The release date is only 3 months away and yet we don’t know what games we can buy at launch? That doesn’t make sense. Hopefully they’ll do another event in the near future to talk about them. And that’s the end of the live stream. Event attendees will have playable demos of some of the games shown. Look for info on those later today.
