Rumours have been around for a while regarding The Creative Assembly working on an Alien title, and today SEGA officially revealed this to be true, unveiling an announcement trailer and new assets
for Alien: Isolation
-- a first-person survival-horror experience.
On a decommissioned trading station in the fringes of space, fear and panic have gripped the inhabitants. Players find themselves in an atmosphere of constant dread and mortal danger as an unpredictable, ruthless Xenomorph is stalking and killing deep in the shadows. Underpowered and underprepared, you must scavenge resources, improvise solutions and use your wits, not just to succeed in your mission, but to simply stay alive.
The game looks to be capturing the horror-thriller component of the first film, rather than Cameron's Aliens, as so many other games have -- serving up a fresh-looking single-player horror experience.
"In Alien: Isolation, we have taken the series back to the roots of Ridley Scott’s 1979 movie, the original survival-horror,” said Alistair Hope, Creative Lead at Creative Assembly via press release. “Our Alien is a truly terrifying creature, as intelligent as he is hostile, relentless, brutal and unstoppable. This is the Alien game fans of the series have always wanted.”
The game is due out in "late 2014" on PC, PS4 and Xbox One as well as PS3 and Xbox 360. Watch the announcement trailer embedded below.
