This would normally be the point for an obligatory Aliens quote - "They mostly come out at night, mostly", "They're coming out of the walls, they're coming out of the god damn walls!", "Why don't you put her in charge?!" - but I'm not too sure which I can make applicable for the fairly standard looking story trailer.
I think we're supposed to like these characters and then feel sorry for them when they die.
Will you feel sad? Will you, you monster?
Alien: Colonial Marines is due out on 12 February.
