SEGA and Twentieth Century Fox have released details of a new game based upon the classic 1979 Sci-Fi horror film Alien. The new title will be called 'Alien: Isolation' and is being developed by Creative Assembly. This "thrilling new survival horror experience," is said to be highly atmospheric and compared to the films is much more influenced by the first in the series with its atmosphere of "constant dread and mortal danger".

"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. "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."

Alien: Isolation is set in a time 15 years after the end of the first film. You will play in the game as Amanda, Ellen Ripley's daughter. Your mother has gone missing and you will have to navigate through an "increasingly volatile world," as you seek to unravel the mystery behind your mother's disappearance. Amanda will be confronted by both panicky and desperate people surviving on the planet and the awesomely powerful, ruthless and unpredictable Alien.

To have a chance to survive, let alone succeed in your quest you will have to be resourceful, ready to improvise and live on your wits.

Alien: Isolation will be available in late 2014 for XBox 360, Xbox One, PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4 and PC. You can read more about the game, see more videos and more screenshots on the official Alien: Isolation page.

How does Ripley's daughter get involved with aliens when no-one else has encountered them (even on LV426) until after Ripley arrives back on earth 57 years late, and after the death of her daughter?
I wonder if they will have coop.
The last alien vs marines left like it missed something but been so much more.
Yuk. You see your own hands. Always a bad sign IMO.
I dunno, if they keep the focus on the Amnesia-esque survival horror then it could work. I'm very cautious after the Colonial Marines fiasco but hopeful that they do a good job with this.
After the latest flop called “Aliens: Colonial Marines” I will avoid all and any games to do with the Aliens Franchise.

Don't want to be more upset about the franchise I loved be ruined even further..

however with that said, maybe this might not be a flop and I will keep a distant eye on it…..
