SEGA has officially announced Alien: Isolation, a first person survival-horror game developed by Creative Assembly.
Due for release in late 2014, Alien: Isolation will be available on PS4, Xbox One, PS3, Xbox 360 and PC, and will be set on a decommissioned trading station on the fringes of space. Invoking the spirit of Ridley Scott’s classic 1979 film, you’ll be tasked with avoiding the ruthless Xenomorph stalking the shadows.
“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.”
The announcement marks the first time SEGA has officially released information about the game, though various titbits have been leaking for some time. Back in October, there was a suggestion that players would be controlling Ellen Ripley’s daughter, Amanda, as she fights her way through a space station. It’s now been confirmed that this is true.
Similarly, earlier today a listing appeared on Xbox Live Marketplace revealing more information about the game. Interestingly, when the listing was first put up it contained reference to online multiplayer and co-op, though the it’s since been modified to remove these features. The press release we received makes no mention of them either.
