SEGA has officially unveiled Alien: Isolation. In the game, you will take the role of Ellen Ripley’s daughter, Amanda. The game is planned for a late 2014 release on PC, Xbox 360, PS3, PS4 and Xbox One.
“Creative Assembly has created a truly incredible gaming experience, capturing perfectly the very core of what has made the Alien franchise remain relevant after 35 years,” said Jeffrey Godsick, president of Twentieth Century Fox Consumer Products. “This partnership has led to the creation of a game that is simply outstanding and sets the tone for what is to come this year for the 35th anniversary of Alien.”
One of the plot threads that is teased in the “Alien” franchise, but hasn’t been explored in the films, is the throwaway line about Ellen Ripley’s daughter, whom she outlived thanks to her 50 year stasis between the first two films. Now it seems that story is finally getting told, in the form of a new “Alien” video game from SEGA, Twentieth Century Fox, and Creative Assembly, titled Alien: Isolation. You can see the announcement trailer, a developer diary, and some screenshots for the game below along with the full press release.
“In Alien: Isolation, we have taken the series back to the roots of Ridley Scott’s 1979 movie, the original survival horror,” said Alistair Hope, Creative Lead at Creative Assembly. “Our Alien is a truly terrifying creature, as intelligent as he is hostile, relentless, brutal and unstoppable. This is the Alien game fans of the series have always wanted.”
