UPDATE: Gearbox has released a trailer for Escape Mode. Check it out after the break.
Gearbox has announced a new competitive multiplayer mode for Aliens: Colonial Marines called "Escape Mode." Team Deathmatch is the name of the game as four Xenomorphs try to prevent four Colonial Marines from escaping. This sounds a lot like the multiplayer mode I played at the Gearbox booth last PAX.
"The Colonial Marines must blast their way through the fast-paced map in order to escape the attacking Xenomorphs, who in return will try to eliminate their prey as quickly as possible. Under the pressure and limited in time, players will have to work together as a team, utilizing each faction's unique skills, and identifying their opponents' weak spots to either reach the safety of the escape point or to eliminate their targets."
Aliens: Colonial Marines will be released on February 12, 2013.
