The six metre high egg was placed in the London park to celebrate the launch of SEGA’s Aliens: Colonial Marines on PlayStation3, Xbox360 and PC tomorrow.

The structure could be seen looming near the Mayor’s office and Tower Bridge, completely open to the public and guarded by Colonial Marines who were on the look out for the stray Xenomorph that broke free in the area.
