Aliens Colonial Marines will add to the story and also fix dangling threads. The story in the series is quite complex and it allows game designers to pick new threads and build upon it, and also fix any errors.

“Looking at the end of Aliens – we’ve got them getting off the planet, we’ve got that atmospheric processor going off. Where can we pick up that thread? What are the repercussions of that? That’s sort of where we come in,” Gearbox Software’s cinematic director Brian Burleson told OXM.

“Because as storytellers it’s always fun to figure out where someone else left some dangling threads in their story. That’s another cool thing about this universe: all the stories do that, they always leave a few dangling threads for somebody else to pick up.

“So we’ve run with a few of those, and created our own fiction from that, and left a few dangling threads of our own for other people to hopefully pick up one day, and expand the universe even further.”

The game will be released next month for the PS3, Xbox 360 and PC.
