It looks like Alienware is lining up to launch their next generation of gaming desktop, teasing with their Let Your Hero Out video.

There isn't much to go on, but we can expect plenty of gaming power and breath-taking design for the new PC. The date given in the video is 18 Jan 2012 for a reveal, so I guess we'll know all the details by then. 

Alienware recently launched a new Aurora desktop in December 2011, at which point the Area 51 retired from active service. Therefore, it would be logical to guess that this will be an exciting new Area 51 desktop, which some had expected to see launched at CES 2012 in Las Vegas.

In previous years we've seen a run of Alienware gaming laptops released, you can read our review of the Alienware M11x R3 here.
