Aliens: Colonial Marines' Escape Mode is detailed in a new gameplay trailer, showing off a competitive multiplayer mode reminiscent of Left 4 Dead's Versus mode.

In Escape Mode, one team of four marines must race from the entrance of the level to the evacuation ship, crossing through deadly, Alien-infested terrain all the way. Another team of four Aliens must keep them from reaching their destination by inhabiting three special classes of hunters: The armored Xeno Soldier, the pouncing Xeno Lurker, and acidic Xeno Spitter.

You can watch the mad sprint unfold in the trailer posted below. Hey, it could be worse for the marines. There could be Witches.
