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.”
