Just how does Aliens: Colonial Marines fit into the timeline of the movies? Well we know it takes place after the events of Aliens but Gearbox and SEGA remain tight-lipped on exactly how the game fits in. The latest teaser trailer shows how the exterior of Hadley’s Hope looks after the explosion of the atmospheric processor.

It isn’t clear if there are any survivors as it looks like the explosion was upwards, not outwards. Cast your mind back to the film, did everybody die? Well events suggest that there were no live marines left behind but you didn’t actually witness everybody’s deaths! I’m sure Colonial Marines will hold all the answers. In the meantime enjoy the teaser, hopefully this will be the first of many – roll on February 2013!
