Aliens: Colonial Marines release date now February 12 2013

Joins the likes of BioShock: Infinite and Devil May Cry

Aliens: Colonial Marines has joined the list of big name titles that have been pushed back to 2013 including BioShock: Infinite and Devil May Cry

SEGA has unveiled the Aliens: Colonial Marines release date as the 12th February 2013 making it another of the big titles to be pushed beyond the Christmas rush.

According to SEGA this will be the most faithful adaptation of the James Cameron film yet with every detail being noted to be true to the films and the mythology surrounding them.

You follow a band of US Colonial Marines as they search through the abandoned vessel U.S.S. Sulaco and try to determine why the crew disappeared and what happened to the ship.

Aliens: Colonial Marines is one of a number of titles that have also been confirmed for the Nintendo Wii U alongside Metro: Last Light and Batman: Arkham City.

This will be the third big name title to be pushed back alongside BioShock: Infinite and Devil May Cry suggesting that developers will be hoping to avoid the competition from the likes of Halo 4 and Assassin's Creed 3.
