Creative Assembly’s Alien: Isolation Gets An Official Reveal And Trailer
Alien: Isolation was previously hinted not that long ago, but today SEGA and Creative Assembly officially announced their newest title. Alien: Isolation is a “thrilling first-person survival horror experience” and is set to try and recapture the terror-evoking feeling created by Ridley Scott’s 1979 classic film. It takes place 15 years after the events of Alien, and you are Amanda Ripley, the daughter of Ellen, and the game culminates around a singular Alien, similar to the original movie. Amanda is haunted by her mother’s disappearance after blowing up the Nostromo and joins Weyland-Yutani as an engineer, looking for clues. It’s here that she is approached by a company exec claiming to have found the Black Box recorder, on a remote and isolated space station called Sevastopol. As you’d expect she is quickly separated from the rest of the crew upon arrival, and this is where the Alien comes in.
Unlike Colonial Marines, Alien: Isolation features a singular Alien creature with an amazing effect. This ruthless and unpredictable Xenomorph is hunting for you, and it’s up to you to hide and survive while scavenging resources, improvising situations and fighting to outwit an intelligent enemy. What’s more is the Xenomorph can actually learn, so if you hide in a locker too many times while it’s around and you may find those slender black fingers working a way to open it up sooner than you think.
Alistair Hope, Creative Lead at Creative Assembly believes that Alien: Isolation is “the game fans of the series have always wanted”, and Jeffrey Godsick, president of Twentieth Century Fox Consumer Products also seems to share the love for the new title.
Creative Assembly had created a truly incredible gaming experience, capturing perfectly the very core of what has made the Alien franchise remain relevant after 35 years. 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.
Along with the release came an official trailer and a slew of new screenshots, which you can view to your hearts content below:
Alien: Isolation will be available late 2014 for Playstation 4, Playstation 3, Xbox One, Xbox 360 and PC so everyone can experience what horror is meant to feel like. Make sure you check out the Alien: Isolation official website to keep up to date on all the latest announcements, screens and more.
