Sega Announces Alien Isolation

/ Jan 8th, 2014 No Comments

Alien Isolation

[adsense250itp]Alien Isolation, a first-person survival-horror title based on Ridley Scott’s 1979 movie Alien, will release in late 2014, Sega announced.

The game, being developed by British studio The Creative Assembly, will be available for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, PlayStation 3, Xbox 360 and PC. The development studio is best known for creating the Total War franchise.

Alien Isolation follows the story of Amanda Ripley, the daughter of Alien protagonist Ellen Ripley, 15 years after the events of the film. In hopes of finding out what happened to her mother, Amanda sets out into space in search of a Nostromo flight recorder. Instead, she finds the same threat is awaiting her.

Staying true to its movie roots, the Xenomorph in Alien Isolation will be intelligent, responsive and terrifying. It will lurk in the shadows and how it attacks will depend on how gamers play. Amanda will need to gather resources, craft items and hack systems in order to survive.

Alien Isolation will be part of a year-long celebration of Alien planned by 20th Century Fox to celebrate the film’s 35th anniversary. Commemorative toys and other products will also be released throughout the year as part of the celebration.

A debut trailer for Alien Isolation was released alongside the announcement. The trailer can be viewed below.

Our Take:

It is easy to be skeptical of Alien Isolation after the last game based on the film, Aliens: Colonial Marines, was one of the worst games released last year. However, Alien Isolation will try to capture the spirit of the film rather than become another shameless movie tie-in. The pressure is on for The Creative Assembly as it may be difficult to justify another Alien game after two straight failures.
