This morning, the curtain has been pulled back on Aliens: Isolation, the latest game using the Aliens license. The reveal trailer above shows that our newest adventure will be a first person survival horror game, almost in the vein of Amnesia. Players take the role of Ellen Ripley’s daughter Amanda. Amanda travels Sevastopol, a large, almost city-like station, where Amanda searches for her mom. It goes about as well as you’d expect.
Creative Assembly, most famous for the Total War games, is at the helm of this game. Ripley has to flee from the Xenomorph, as well as currently unknown other threats, while searching for what happened to her mom. To combat this, Amanda will be able to craft to make traps or distractions to slow her pursuer down. Ripley cannot attack the monster, so running and hiding are your only means of escape.
Expected later this year, the game is reportedly already playable from start to finish, but much polishing is yet to be done. The game feature “no multiplayer what so ever” according to Joystiq, and is releasing on the PS3, Xbox 360, PC, Xbox One and PS4.
