Brian Burleson of Gearbox has explained just how much attention the developers put into making a consistent experience between Aliens: Colonial Marines and the Aliens movie. He’s explained that:
At the beginning of the game you come to the Drop Ship Hangar. There, the Xenomorph Queen Bishop ripped in the film ‘Aliens’. In the game you can see still Bishops severed legs lying around, and white blood stains mark the place where he died.
…remember when Rebecca ‘Newt’ Jordon is running around under the floor, while the queen has top pulled up each grid? Our people have sat down and the basis of the film precisely determined which grid in the game must be missing why.
So, yeah, that’s awesome. Is anyone else as excited for this as I am?
