SEGA and Gearbox Software announced Thursday Escape mode, a new competitive multiplayer mode for Aliens: Colonial Marines, launching on February 12, 2013.
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. Escape mode will debut at PAX Prime 2012, August 31 – September 2, in Seattle at SEGA’s booth
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 game will be available in stores across the globe on February 12, 2013 on PlayStation 3, Xbox 360 and PC. No date has been set for the recently announced Wii U version.
