I've got two words for you, Aliens fans: power loaders. The latest trailer for Gearbox Software's Aliens: Colonial Marines at last offers official confirmation that power loaders will be a thing that players can take control of. We had previously seen them pop up in game footage under the command of NPCs and it seemed only natural that they'd be usable, but Gearbox had yet to confirm it.
Well consider it confirmed. Just take a peek at the last few seconds of the trailer for your proof. It looks like they come packing a built-in motion tracker that is always visible in your HUD. Neat-o. Beware though: there's a bit of NSFW language here. Aliens: Colonial Marines hits stores on February 13, 2013.
