Aliens: Colonial Marines, the latest first-person shooter title in the sci-fi franchise, is finally being released worldwide for PC, Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3, on February 12 (coincidentally, near Valentine’s day).

In this latest addition to the series, gamers will fight an extra-terrestrial threat from the first-person point-of-view of a US Colonial Marine. An array of iconic weapons from the 1986 film can be accessed, such as shotgun, pulse rifle, and various RPGs. And who can forget the nerve-wrecking motion tracker, which long-time players of the game franchise both love and hate.

A  new competitive multiplayer mode has been introduced. Players not only get to choose to fight as the main protagonist, but also as the nastiest and deadliest life-form any man could encounter: the Xenomorphs.
