Aliens: Colonial Marines to be ‘very accessible’

Gearbox is famous for the Brothers In Arms series, but CEO Randy Pitchford doesn’t want that to make you think Aliens: Colonial Marines will be about squad control and tactical maneuvers. The reason for this is simple — you can’t use tactics on a freakin’ Xenomorph.

“We actually wanted it to be a very accessible experience,” he said. “The goal is not to have complicated interfaces, we’re not worrying about having things like squad command, you don’t need fire maneuvers … there’s no maneuvering on an alien.”

Sounds about right to me. Just give me a pulse rifle and army of bugs to kill. Man, I am so stoked for this game.
