New Multiplayer mode for Aliens: Colonial Marines


SEGA and Gearbox Software have announced Escape mode, a new competitive multiplayer mode, for its highly anticipated title Aliens: Colonial Marines. With a competitive death match game mode already revealed earlier in the year, Escape mode is the second in a number of competitive multiplayer modes for Aliens: Colonial Marines and will challenge players in an intense scenario against the universe’s deadliest killers, the Xenomorph.

Escape mode puts the four-person US Colonial Marines team on the offensive against a four-player Xenomorph team. The Colonial Marines must blast their way through the fast-paced map in order to escape the attacking Xenomorphs, who in return will try to eliminate their prey as quickly as possible. Under the pressure and limited in time, players will have to work together as a team, utilizing each faction’s unique skills, and identifying their opponents’ weak spots to either reach the safety of the escape point or to eliminate their targets.

Aliens: Colonial Marines will be available in stores across the globe on February 12, 2013 on PlayStation3, Xbox 360 and Windows PC. A release date for the announced Wii U version will be revealed at a later time.
