The story takes place after the events of the 2nd Alien film (Aliens), but before the events of Alien 3.
You are basically a 2nd team of marines sent in to investigate the happening of the first mission. So you will visit the Sulaco (ship from Aliens), as well as the planet and the colony of Hadly's Hope, after the explosion from the film. And you find out what happened to some of the marines from the movie Aliens.
