Watch ten minutes of Aliens: Colonial Marines gameplay

Gearbox has uploaded the footage it's been showing off since E3 this year, the full live walkthrough demo of Aliens: Colonial Marines. In this video, you'll get to see the Marines exploring Hadley's Hope and encountering the Xenomorphs for the first time. 

What I love about the gameplay so far is the animation on the Xenos. The cat-like way they hop from left to right in order to avoid fire and their ability to slink through small gaps in the terrain is some really encouraging attention to detail. It looks like Gearbox has loved bringing the Aliens to life, and that's something I can get behind. 

Really glad they finally threw this video up. I can't wait to see more.
