Release Announced for SEGA’s “ALIEN: ISOLATION”Books/Art/Culture,News Samuel Zimmerman
The highly anticipated Creative Assembly-developed ALIEN: ISOLATION has been cultivating excitement without something very important: a firm date. Now we know however, when the survival horror chronicle of Ellen Ripley’s daughter will hit shelves and your homes.
SEGA has announced an October 7, 2014 release for ALIEN: ISOLATION. “We couldn’t be happier to finally announce a date for Alien: Isolation,” said Alistair Hope, Creative Lead at Creative Assembly. “The reaction we have seen so far has been simply incredible, from the screams and shrieks to the cold sweats and racing hearts. It’s the ALIEN game that we’ve always wanted to play and we can’t wait to let everyone get their hands on it this fall.”
In the game, coming to Xbox One, Xbox 360, PS4, PS3 and PC, “players find themselves in an atmosphere of constant dread and mortal danger as an unpredictable, ruthless Xenomorph is stalking and killing deep in the shadows. 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.”
By now, it’s widely known you’ll play through ALIEN: ISOLATION as Amanda Ripley, the barely-mentioned daughter of the iconic Ellen Ripley. FANGORIA got a first look at the game this past December when we visited Creative Assembly in Horsham, UK and it made a big, moody impression. Truly taking its cues from the first, haunting film, ALIEN: ISOLATION looks like it might have something special. You can read our full thoughts here.
