Published by Sega, the Gearbox-developed title will let players assume the roles of space-faring human soldiers as a first-person-shooter style experience or the xenomorphs in third-person style stalking gameplay. The game will become an official part of the sci-fi franchise's lore and Kotaku's recent interview with Gearbox's Randy Pitchford shows that the dev studio is taking the opportunity to add to the Aliens mythos very seriously.
