Aliens Colonial Marines DLC: Bug Hunt mode outed by retailer

Walmart promotion claims March 19 release for add-on pack

Sega plans to release an Aliens: Colonial Marines DLC pack next month, if photos of Walmart promotional materials posted on the Gearbox forums are genuine.

Seemingly set for release on March 19, the Bug Hunt DLC will let you "team up with your friends to take on waves of increasingly difficult enemies in an all new game mode."


Retail listings for an unannounced Aliens: Colonial Marines season pass recently revealed that Sega intends to release four DLC packs for the game by summer 2013. These are expected to introduce new campaign content, plus fresh multiplayer maps and modes.

Sega has confirmed an Aliens: Colonial Marines release date of February 12, 2013 on PC, PS3 and Xbox 360, with a Wii U launch date set to be "revealed at a later time".

Customers who place Aliens: Colonial Marines pre-orders will be able to play as Aliens movie characters Hicks, Hudson, Drake and Apone in multiplayer, customise their marine's arsenal and wield Ripley's flamethrower.
