Aliens: Colonial Marines has been delayed until the autumn. But to compensate (at least a little) Gearbox have released a new trailer for the game. No gameplay, but some nice CGI and great use of the Clint Mansell soundtrack from the film Moon.

The game is a direct sequel to the movie Aliens. It focuses on the recovery of the Sulaco (the ship used by Ripley and the marines in that film to get to LV-426 and subsequently escape) by a rescue team of colonial marines, who then backtrack the ship's course to LV-426 and subsequently learn the fate of the planet after its nuking in the movie. Established characters are not expected to appear (since they bailed out of the Sulaco at the start of Alien 3). The Aliens universe will also be explored this July in Ridley Scott's new film Prometheus, set before the events of the original Alien.
