Alien: Isolation hatches a release date

Format:
A Super scary sci-fi horror game, Alien: Isolation takes a very different approach to other games based on the Alien movie saga and will be landing with us on October 7th.

Release Date: 31/03/2014

Super scary sci-fi horror game Alien: Isolation will hatch on October 7th, British developer The Creative Assembly has announced. It dropped the news as part of a talk at the Eurogamer Expo Rezzed show at Birmingham NEC this weekend. The game was also playable on the show floor.

"We couldn't be happier to finally announce a date for Alien: Isolation," Creative Assembly's Alistair Hope told the crowd. "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."

A first-person survival horror adventure, Alien: Isolation takes a very different approach to other games based on the Alien movie saga. Whereas most take their cue from James Cameron's more action-packed sequel, Isolation recreates the atmosphere of Ridley Scott's 1979 original. Playing as Amanda Ripley, daughter of Sigourney Weaver's movie character, you find yourself trapped on a decaying space station, the Sevastopol, along with the iconic creature.

That's right - there's only one Alien in the game, but rather than a scripted antagonist that pops up at fixed points, it's a free-roaming AI hunter that can use its virtual senses to track you down. Gulp. You'll also encounter environmental hazards caused by the station's collapse, as well as fellow survivors who will react to you differently depending on how you behave. It sounds absolutely fantastic, and Eurogamer named it the Game of the Show.

Alien: Isolation is published by Sega, and is out for Xbox 360, Xbox One, PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4 and PC on October 7th.
