Well, it looks like that the prgrammers have said that the game will follow the original storyline from "Aliens", and they say that we will play on the Sulaco and in the colony..., we all know that the Sulaco were burning in hell so I guess it got destroyed after releasing the evv and the colony was also destroyed after the nuclear explosion, so at this point, the Derelict would be the only possible stage cause it,s the only one which was not destroyed, so, what does Gearbox mean when they say that this game will follow and continue with the original plot?.
I think they mean the setting not the true story line of Aliens but they seeting. The Marines are not apart of the Sulaco crew tey are their to investigate what happened. They are also there to investigate the planet. Now as the reactor which goes off I dont know how they will explain that yet...
