Scant info in there, so just for you I've harvested the main points:

-set just after the events of Alien3.
-no predators at all
-story by Battlestar Galactica writers Bradley Thompson and Dave Webber
-no in-game hud (ammo counter on the side of your gun)
-probable release date of next year.
-work in a team with three AI, just like Brothers in Arms
-seamless jump-in/jump-out co-op for up to four players.

(nana2)

EDIT: Also, scenes you play include the alien vessel on LV426, the abandoned hulk of the Sulaco and other, "bigger" derelicts such as cargo ships.

i'm starting to like no in-game hud. it seems more realistic that way (depends with games of course). i'm really looking foward to this one. hope gearbox doesn't screw it up.

The co-op sounds awesome, I'm not much for competitive multi but I loooooove the co-op. Set after Alien 3 could mean a cool story too... if you forget about the 4th movie, as you should, the first three made a nice trilogy... it will be interesting to see how the refference it.

Visor Huds like R6 Vegas. They were nice.

After the events of Alien3? Perhaps we play the guys sent to find out what happened on the planet?

Hasn't that story already been done?

You're just disappointed because it doesn't have Michael Flatley in it.

OMG, so the motion tracker can be only used by itself "NO GUN!", so it’s either know where things are and hope you get your gun out in time or have the gun out and be scared out of your mind when all your hearing is beeps but dont know where they are! :eek:

God this games going to rock! :D

-work in a team with three AI

This is good, because it may allow for one of the staples of horror movies (loosing characters to the monsters). If balanced correctly it could be a nice extra tension.

If it was like that it might be decent... I see it more like Jericho... maybe I am just too pessimistic about all things Aliens related ever since the terrible AvP movies and that last RTS AvP game... yuck, and of course... Alien Resurrection :(.
