SEGA has finally revealed the heavily leaked Alien Isolation – a new survival horror take on the franchise in development by Creative Assembly.
Instead of going gun ho against the Xenomorphs like previous Alien franchised games, Isolation focuses on capturing the the horror and tension from the Ridley Scott 1979 classic film. Players will find themselves underpowered and underprepared against the threat as they must scavenge for resources and use solutions to stay alive.
“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. “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.”
“Creative Assembly has created a truly incredible gaming experience, capturing perfectly the very core of what has made the Alien franchise remain relevant after 35 years,” said Jeffrey Godsick, president of Twentieth Century Fox Consumer Products. “This partnership has led to the creation of a game that is simply outstanding and sets the tone for what is to come this year for the 35th anniversary of Alien.”
Alien Isolation has been slated for a late 2014 release on PlayStation 4, Xbox One and previous gen systems plus PC. This game looks more promising than that Aliens game we shall not name. Seriously just look at this next screenshot.
