Aliens Colonial Marines

Aliens: Colonial Marines Collector’s Edition, GameStop pre-order bonus made official

Yes, Aliens: Colonial Marines may have been delayed until February 12, 2013, but that doesn’t mean we can’t get excited about the Collector’s Edition for it, and boy is it quite the package.

For $100, you’ll get a Powerloader vs. Xenomorph statuette, as well as a USCM dossier containing a mission brief, a schematic of the USS Sephora, a recruitment card, iron-on badges, recon photos, and a USCM graduation certificate. As for digital goodies, there are definitely quite a few included, including the ability to play as the film’s Apone, Drake, Hicks, and Hudson.

Things don’t end there, however. You’ll also get Ripley’s flamethrower, “additional marine customization options,” two bonus multiplayer weapons (Sonic Electromagnetic Ball Breakers (ouch) and Phase Plasma Rifle), and an exclusive level, titled the USCM Academy Firing Range. If you pre-order the standard edition from Gamestop, you’ll get the four bonus characters, as well as customization options and Ripley’s flamethrower. Unfortunately, you won’t get anything else, other than that cold, soulless pre-order receipt from the Gamestop clerk.

Peep the full image of the Collector’s Edition, as well as the press release below. You know, if you’re really into reading.
