Back in October, website Siliconera uncovered a trademark filing for a new game called Alien: Isolation. The day after that, Kotaku released further alleged details with the disclaimer that the content thereof was more than six months old. Now, however, an Xbox Game Store listing (which has since been removed) has seemingly confirmed a number of details originally reported by Kotaku.
Alien: Isolation is indeed being developed by Sega’s The Creative Assembly – the team behind the Total War series. Players will take on the role of Ripley’s daughter Amanda, as she tries to piece together the reasons behind her mother’s disappearance. The events of the game are set 15 years after the events of the film Alien.
The listing described the game as “a survival horror set in an atmosphere of constant dread and immortal danger” and that players will be “confronted on all sides by a panicked, desperate population and an unpredictable, ruthless Alien.” That last bit seems to confirm initial rumours that there will be only one Alien in the game. Online and offline co-op has been confirmed with the former supporting up to 4 players. To date there has been no official word from publisher Sega.
