Aliens: Colonial Marines trailer shows off multiplayer tactics

A new trailer for Aliens: Colonial Marines showcases the different abilities, classes and tactical choices players will be able to make during multiplayer matches.

Xeno players will be able to chose from three different classes, each with their own moves. The Smoke Screen ability, for example, will allow players to conceal their position. Xenos can also spit acid as a primary mode of attack.

Marines can revive fallen teammates and use a variety of weapons, ranging from flamethrowers to shotguns.

You can watch the trailer above. Aliens: Colonial Marines is scheduled for a Feb. 12 release for Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and Windows PC, with Wii U releasing at a later date. A PC season pass for four DLC packs was revealed today.
