Sega Announces Alien: Isolation (Updated With Shots & Trailer)

Here's something quite refreshing. Without a leak via LinkedIn, a website with a countdown, or really much fanfare, Sega announced a new game—Alien: Isolation. Creative Assembly is developing the game and has set the release for late 2014 on the PlayStation 4, PlayStation 3, Xbox One, Xbox 360, and PC. Alien: Isolation will be a first-person survival horror game that will "capture the horror and tension evoked by Ridley Scott's 1979 classic film."

Alien: Isolation is set on a decommissioned trading station on the outskirts of a space colony. Sega has described the atmosphere as providing "a constant dread and mortal danger as an unpredictable, ruthless Xenomoph is stalking and killing deep in the shadows." At the outset, players will have very little equipment, forcing them to scavenge and come up with their own solutions on how to survive.

“In Alien: Isolation, we have taken the series back to the roots of Ridley Scott’s 1979 movie, the original survival horror,” Alistair Hope, Creative Lead at Creative Assembly, said. “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.”

Jeffrey Godsick, president of Twentieth Century Fox Consumer Products added, “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. 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.”

At the very least, it sounds like it will appease Alien fans far more than the, uh, last game did. Check out the first trailer below:

So rad! I love how developers just recently started to realize how true horror comes from player's lack of power, instead of just throwing hordes of 'scary enemies' for you to mow them down.

This is a good start, if nothing else. Alien always struck me as a Survival Horror type of game. The second movie was more of a run-and-gun - which is what most of the games seem to springboard off of because it's flat out easier to do -, but just about every other one involved the main characters trying to keep their asses alive by any means necessary. Heck, I fondly remember in the original PC Aliens vs Predator, the most terrifying thing wasn't the dark corners or creatures jumping out of unseen wall vents.

It was the ping of that goddamn motion tracker; suddenly going off for no discernible reason.

gods i hated those motion trackers... especially running and seeing every ping more and more white lil dots appearing behind you and not wanting to turn around.

(cat brushed up against my leg then, had to take a break from playing)

just had a thought... This game using the new Oculus with maybe the Razer Hydra.
