    New co-op 3rd person survival shooter set in the Alien universe. Screenshots look stunning. I hope this isn't another Colonial Marines, but I can't see that happening. High hopes for this one.

    If it's Left 4 Dead in an Aliens skin I'm in.

    All the way in.

    If you're wanting Left 4 Dead.. just get Back 4 Blood.

    I like to kill both Aliens and Zombies

    It doesn't look all that, and comes from a developer I'm not familiar with, so I think I'll park any cautious optimism and move right on to "probably shit".

    That said, anything co-op is a bit like catnip for me, so let's see what the reviews say. Plus: Aliens, obvs.

    I think some of you are looking at a different game, it looks a bit plop to me.

    Yeah. The trailer isn't exactly oozing originality, novelty or particularly excitement. I'll file it under: to be convinced.

    Looks like another pure shooter, where the aliens run around crouched at waist height and aren't scary in the slightest. I enjoyed Vermintide 2, so if this reviews well I might give it a go, but the Aliens licence (as opposed to Alien) has a pretty poor history in recent years.

    That looks so fucking boring. Go down corridor, open door, plant feet and hold R2 until everything that moves is dead. Brilliant.

    I am hoping for Vermintide levels of craziness with this.

    Third person shooters are pretty tired these days (see outriders for example). This looks to doing nothing new and looks stiff as fuck from a studio I canít think of anything theyíve made.

    That motion detector noise you hear there, itís coming from a thousand bargain bins.

    The trailer looked pap. People going "OOOOH! ALIENS! TAKE MY MONEY!" is the reason the ZX Spectrum had literally the same game with a different title screen for the latest movie on sale for five years. ;)

    Feels like the Alien license is going a bit Warhammer 40K. Loaned out on the cheap to C-list developers to turn a quick buck.

    I'll be there day one if it actually turns out to be good. But signs an't good if that's the trailer.

    Theres about 16 seconds of footage of a fairly promising looking coop aliens game and everyone's clambering over themselves to tell everyone how shit it's going to be.

    This just gives me the same vibe as the countless wanked-out Warhammer 40K titles from low-tier studios. Space Hulk: Deathwing is the example that springs to mind.

    If there was anything "fairly promising" in that footage I'd be overjoyed. Not seeing what you're seeing on this one, and not for a lack of enthusiasm. I clicked through to the video eagerly, and left with a "meh". :(

    Could you post a link to that footage?

    Most of Cold Iron Studios are made up of MMO Devs so I'm expecting a heavy RPG system.

    Hopefully it will be decent - not keen if it's forced co-op though.

    I wouldn't mind if it ripped off Natural Selection, but I didn't see anything to suggest it was remotely that deep.

    Third person seems like a bad choice for a game where by nature presumably you are under regular pressure. Then you have a space marine with a ginormous smart gun (and likely the turning circle of a tank judging from the stilted animation) taking up 1/2 of the screen obscuring what little frontal and peripheral vision that brings.

    So yeah by all means label that experience as ďjoylessĒ

    Iíd love to be wrong, I really would (franchise is cool yo) but I just donít see it.

    I would describe convincing yourself to dislike a game you know absolutely nothing about as joyless yes.
