Aliens Colonial Marines Escape Multiplayer Mode Is Left 4 Dead With Xenos
Well that is perhaps the best way to describe the newly announced Escape mode for Aliens Colonial Marines. Two teams of 4 players will play as either Marines or Xenomorphs in a race to make it from point A to point B across a map. The Marines will try to make it to safety while the other team will use multiple types of Xenomorphs to make sure they never make it there. Its hard not to draw the comparisons to the gameplay of Left 4 Dead’s versus mode, and that’s not a bad thing at all! Escape is the second of many game modes according to Gearbox that will be available when the game launches this February.
An exhilarating experience for fans of the ALIENS universe, 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.
The new Escape game mode will be playable this week at PAX Prime on the show floor! If any of you get a chance to check it out be sure to let us know what you think!!
