Aliens: Colonial Marines collector’s edition is HNNNNNG

It’s been a while since talk of an Aliens: Colonial Marines collector’s edition was had, but here we are with an official SEGA announcement, and details of some really sexy stuff that this particular Xenomorph lover is going to have to get. 

For $99.99, you’ll get everything that was rumored ages ago, which includes:

  • Resin Powerloader statue. 
  • Four multiplayer characters based on the movies — Hicks, Drake, Apone and Hudson.
  • Ripley’s Flamethrower.
  • Extra character customization options.
  • Exclusive weapons — Phase Plasma Rifle and Sonic Electronic Ball Breakers. 
  • Exclusive level — USMC Firing Range. 
  • USCM Dossier — includes mission brief, USS Sephora schematic, Recruitment card, LV-426 recon photo, USCM iron-on badges, USCM graduation certificate. 
  • Xenomorph “Hive” packaging.

Yeah, the fact that Gearbox is turning Sonic Electronic Ball Breakers into an actual weapon might be the best thing I’ve heard all week. Brilliant.

In addition to all that mad content, the flamethrower, characters, and customization options are being offered separately as pre-order incentives at GameStop. If you’re obsessed with Hudson but don’t want to pay extra for him, you can always do that. 

God, I want this game forever.
