We’re almost a year removed from Alien: Colonial Marines, a game that was mostly memorable for how underdeveloped and glitchy it was. Playing through that game was the recreational equivalent to making out with a face hugger, leaving a gaping hole in the chest of Alien fans everywhere.
Flash forward to today, when Sega announced that they’re taking another crack at conquering Ridley Scott’s beloved universe in a new title called Alien: Isolation. The game will take place 15 years after the events of Alien, pitting you in the shoes of Ripley’s daughter, Amanda. Visually, the game is looking solid so far, as you’ll see for yourself watching the trailer below.
I’m still recovering from the heartache bestowed upon me by Colonial Marines, so I’m hoping Isolation will deliver on a level no Alien title has yet. I’m very excited about the game having a female lead, as the Alien universe seems to thrive when a woman is at the helm (Long live Ripley).
The game is set to hit PS4, PlayStation 3, Xbox One, Xbox 360 and PC later this year. For more insight on Alien: Isolation, check out the developer diary below.
