SEGA has released the E3 2014 trailer for Creative Assembly’s upcoming Alien game, Alien: Isolation. Alien: Isolation is a first-person survival horror game that aims to capture the fear and tension evoked by Ridley Scott’s 1979 classic film. The game will be available from October 7th for Xbox One, PS4, PC, Xbox 360 and PS3.
Realize the true meaning of fear in Alien: Isolation, a survival horror set in an atmosphere of constant dread and mortal danger. Fifteen years after the events of Alien, Ellen Ripley’s daughter, Amanda enters a desperate battle for survival, on a mission to unravel the truth behind her mother’s disappearance.
As Amanda, you will navigate through an increasingly volatile world as you find yourself confronted on all sides by a panicked, desperate population and an unpredictable, ruthless Alien. 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.
Inspiration has been taken from BioShock and Dishonored. Creative Assembly confirmed in their “Origin” video that only a single Xenomorph will be present for all of the game, which would focus on survival horror with a slower pace rather than the frantic action seen in other Alien games such as Aliens: Colonial Marines (2013) and Aliens vs. Predator (2010). However, the player will also spend some time shooting several types of enemies which are planned to include clones and soldiers. Vents, lockers, and melee weapons will factor into the gameplay. The U.K. gameplay trailer for the U.K. version of the PlayStation official magazine, it is stated that any damage taken by the Alien would be instant death, thus the player would have to avoid and hide from the Alien.
The game will not feature “any multiplayer whatsoever”, according to Chris Napper.
