A listing went up on the Xbox Games Store detailing a new Alien game by Sega and developer The Creative Assembly called Alien: Isolation which would see Ripley’s daughter, Amanda, go investigating her mother’s disappearance fifteen years ago only to become trapped with a xenomorph on a space station.
Check out the official listing:
“”Discover the true meaning of fear in Alien: Isolation, a survival horror set in an atmosphere of constant dread and immortal danger. Players will take on the role of Amanda, the daughter of Ellen Ripley, as she goes on a mission to find out the truth behind her mother’s disappearance. The listing states that players will navigate through “an increasingly volatile world as you find yourself confronted on all sides by a panicked, desperate population and and unpredictable, ruthless Alien.”
OK Sega, I was burned by Gearbox on Alien: Colonial Marines (read the review here to see how much it hurt) but since I am a card carrying member in the Alien fanboy club I will see what you have in store for this game.
As I was about to hit publish on this article I found that GameTrailers has just posted a video with the first gameplay from Alien: Isolation. Check it out here.
First thought on the video: Damn, that is more like it.
