With the release of Gearbox’s next FPS—Aliens: Colonial Marines—right around the corner, it looks like the company will be opting for a Season Pass for this game’s DLC. The Season Pass for the PC version of Aliens: Colonial Marines has been spotted on Amazon and GameStop. Much like Borderlands 2, the Aliens season pass looks like it will give access to four DLCs, which are supposed to be released between March and summer.

The pass is priced at $30 on Amazon, and $27 on the GameStop website, which translates to Rs 1,600 and Rs 1,400 respectively. The Season pass is also available on Steam for $27 till February 11, after which it will cost $30. According to the description of the season pass, the Aliens: Colonial Marines Season Pass will give you access to campaign content, additional multiplayer maps, new modes, and character customisation, among other things.

Back in December, Gearbox had released a trailer for Aliens: Colonial Marines that gave us a glimpse of the game's story. Judging by the events of the trailer, it looks like the game will be making heavy use of the Aliens mythos.

According to the trailer, the story involves the titular colonial marines responding to a distress call on the USS Sulaco. The game is set to focus heavily on narrow level design, causing paranoia in the players thanks to the Xenomorphs' ability to kill quickly.

Here’s a summary of the game’s plot according to the developers: “Aliens: Colonial Marines begins with an ostensibly abandoned ship, the U.S.S. Sulaco, recovered in orbit around LV-426. Players lead a group of highly trained United States Colonial Marines as they board the deserted craft to uncover the fate of the crew. They will have to fight to survive unspeakable horrors and their own anxieties as they chase down the truth behind a galaxy-spanning deception that places humanity at the mercy of the most murderous and deadly species in the universe. Aliens: Colonial Marines features authentic environments, such as the surface of LV-426 and Hadley’s Hope, weapons inspired by the film series and is designed to provide an exhilarating and engaging new chapter in the Aliens universe."
