Aliens: Colonial Marines Gets Some Sneaky Campaign DLC
Hey guys! Remember that game that released at the beginning of the year and blew everyone’s minds?!
You know, because it was so shit… Yeah. Aliens: Colonial Marines, that’s the one. Well, some of you who bought it — as in, paid actual money for it — we’re assuming because you’re either huge fans of the franchise, realised about the game’s true colours after it was too late to cancel your pre-order, or perhaps you just won it in a competition and didn’t actually pay anything for it, are in for a real treat right now.

If you’ll go onto your Xbox LIVE Marketplace or PlayStation Network, you’ll discover that there is now campaign DLC out for Aliens: Colonial Marines, released very sneakily by Sega this past week.
Weighing in at 2.02GB, the Stasis Interrupted campaign DLC is the final piece of DLC for the game (thank fuck) and tells the story of Hicks, filling in the gap in his character’s existence between Aliens and Alien 3.
The DLC is free for season pass holders (I lol’d) and will set you back some 800 Magical Sexy Points (£6.85 / €9.60 / $10.00) as a standalone offering. Here’s an official description:
In this new campaign you play as 3 different characters through an interlocking story. Waking up unexpectedly from hypersleep, Lisbeth and others must figure out why the spaceship they are on, the Legato, has been diverted to intercept the Sulaco leaving LV-426’s orbit.
Fight your way through the alien infested spaceship, find out what Michael Weyland is after and discover what truly happened to Hicks. If you already own the Aliens: Colonial Marines Season Pass do not purchase this pack as you will be charged again.
I imagine there was no announcement of this for obvious reasons; Sega and Gearbox wish to wash their hands of the game and pretend it never existed, only they had this thing called a contractual obligation, to deliver some DLC packages. Ah well, at least they can resume their pretending now that the DLC is finally out. And those gamers among us who actually enjoyed Colonial Marines now have that much more to dig into. Awesome. Also: How?
