We were hoping for independently-targeting particle beam phalanxes, tactical smart missiles, phase-plasma pulse rifles, RPGs, sonic electronic ball breakers, nukes, knives, and sharp sticks, but rendered environments will have to do.

VG247 has posted about a new Aliens: Colonial Marines trailer that shows how some of the environmental concept art of the Hadley's Hope colony has been rendered in the game. The video lacks any real action, but you can look at all of the pretty, but horribly-foreboding, designs of the colony. It's a very brief look, but fans might appreciate a peek at how concepts become reality.

Peep the video below and look forward to exploring Hadley's Hope in all of its horrifying glory when Aliens: Colonial Marines drops on February 12th, 2013, right in time for Valentine's Day. Why not give it as a gift to the one who makes your chest burst?
