Sega and Creative Assembly have officially unveiled Alien: Isolation. A lot of the rumoured details have obviously been confirmed, but a trailer and developer diary provide in-game footage and gameplay in addition to more information. Fans of the original Ridley Scott sci-fi horror, Alien, will likely be very excited by what has just been unveiled.
Players will indeed be taking on the role of Amanda Ripley – Ellen Ripley’s daughter. At the end of the first film, The Nostromo vessel self-destructed moments after Ellen Ripley escaped. Fifteen years later, Amanda goes out in search of what happened to her mother. This eventually leads her into an encounter with one of the Xenomorph aliens.
This is not a first-person shooter; this is a first-person horror survival game, so don’t think along the lines of previous Alien vs Predator games, but rather think Amnesia: The Dark Descent.
