It's been tried before, but Alien: Isolation is looking like it's on the right track to do the franchise justice when it hits last gen, current gen and the PC just in time for Halloween.
SEGA of America, Inc., SEGA Europe, Ltd. and Twentieth Century Fox Consumer Products today announced that Alien: Isolation, the hugely anticipated survival horror title, will be available from October 7, 2014. Developed by Creative Assembly, the game will be available on Xbox One, the all-in-one games and entertainment system from Microsoft, PlayStation 4 computer entertainment system, Xbox 360 games and entertainment system from Microsoft, PlayStation 3 computer entertainment system, and Windows PC.
“We couldn’t be happier to finally announce a date for Alien: Isolation,” said Alistair Hope, Creative Lead at Creative Assembly. “The reaction we have seen so far has been simply incredible, from the screams and shrieks to the cold sweats and racing hearts. It’s the Alien game that we’ve always wanted to play and we can’t wait to let everyone get their hands on it this fall.”
Alien: Isolation is a first-person survival horror game capturing the fear and tension evoked by Ridley Scott’s 1979 classic film. 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.
Alien: Isolation will be available from October 7, 2014, for Xbox One, PS4, Xbox 360, PS3 and Windows PC.
