Sega has released a new trailer of Gearbox Software's upcoming Aliens: Colonial Marines game.

The video shows several of the special abilities on both the Xenomorph and the Marine side, as well as at the various tactical choices that players can make during competitive, asymmetrical multiplayer.

Marines have access to different weapons, from the classic pulse rifle to the flamethrower, to the smart gun, explosives and assault rifle.

Just like the multiplayer characters, the weapons are fully customisable and selectable in the load out.

Xenomorph players can choose from three different classes, such as Soldier, Lurker or Spitter, that have own customisable attacks and looks.
