It seems that today Sega made an official announcement on the finalized contents of both the Limited and Collector’s edition of Alien’s Colonial Marines. Sadly for us, it’s not in English quite yet. From what we can gather though, fans of the movie are going to flip their lids at some of the content being provided here.
The Limited Edition will come with four playable movie characters in the form of Private Hudson, Corporal Hicks, Private Drake and Sergeant Apone, along with some special customization options for your Marine. Lastly, you’ll also get your hands on the duct taped Pulse Rifle + Flamethrower that Ripley used on her trip into the Alien hive near the end of the film. One can assume that the Limited edition is most likely a pre-order bonus type of thing.
Next we have the Collector’s Edition which comes with everything included in the Limited Edition and more. You get the four playable movie characters, customization options and Ripley’s Flamethrower. It also includes a high quality Power Loader figure made of resin packed inside a limited Xeno Hive Box. Exclusive multiplayer weapons such as the Sonic Electronic Ball Breakers and Phase plasma rifle. There is also an exclusive Level featuring a firing range at the USCM Academy, as well as a plethora of paper goods like the USCM-dossier’, commission, floor plans of the USS Sephora, personal information sheet, LV-426: Reconnaissance photo, a USCM-Iron-on Badge, USCM’s degree certificate.
That’s a whole lot of goodies, and boy am I excited. A:CM hits stores Feb 2013 and hopefully we’ll have some great new info coming for you at this year’s E3.
