Alien: Isolation
« on: October 22, 2013, 10:47:48 AM »
Creative Assembly's Alien FPS stars Ripley's daughter Amanda
For current and next-gen consoles in 2014, says report.

Creative Assembly's secret Alien game will be called Alien: Isolation and revolve around Amanda Ripley, daughter of the Ellen Ripley character made famous by actress Sigourney Weaver, an anonymous source-based report has revealed.

Isolation will apparently be a first-person shooter that combines stealth and horror to achieve something akin to Dishonored and BioShock, Kotaku learned.

Isolation is apparently on course for a current and next-gen console release (and presumably also PC) at some point next year.

Isolation is apparently on course for a current and next-gen console release (and presumably also PC) at some point next year.

Isolation will attempt to sweeten the bad taste left by Sega and Gearbox's Aliens: Colonial Marines game earlier this year. Already Isolation has apparently been delayed to ensure the quality is up to scratch, missing a planned E3 2013 summer reveal.

Kotaku's information was unearthed earlier in the year, so it's a few months old. It was sat on until the details could be corroborated. Twentieth Century Fox's recent trademarking of the name Alien: Isolation provided Kotaku the nudge it needed to spill the beans.

Creative Assembly's Alien game was announced way back in spring 2011, so the studio could attract attention and beef out the console team making it - a separate team to the Total War team. Details have been incredibly scarce ever since, presumably so as not to confuse the project with Gearbox's Aliens: Colonial Marines.

Sega is opting for "no comment" on all of this.

So after the last Alien game's development and delivery fiasco, it's looking like there's some fan service being paid -


Sega has announced that all pre-orders come with a mission called "Crew Expendable" -  in which you can play as either Ellen Ripley, Dallas or Parker in the moments following Brett's protracted death in the film. Additionally, the GameStop(US) pre-orders will include a mission called "Last Survivor," in which players assume the role of Ripley during an escape from the Nostromo by boarding the Narcissus shuttle.



If memory serves well, this is the first project since Alien: Resurrection in which Weaver has stamped her approval for. Needless to say this feels like it's adding more cred to the release of Alien: Isolation.

"It was eerie how quickly it happened," Weaver told The AP."Honestly. I had to start with this sort of sign-off, 'This is Lieutenant Ripley of the starship Nostromo.' You know, that paragraph. I felt like no time had passed. It was really strange, actually. If anything, it was more affecting to me to read it again 35 years later."

In Alien: Isolation, players take on the role of Ellen Ripley's daughter, Amanda - 15 years after the events of Alien.

Expanding on what drew her to the project, Weaver goes on:

"Emotionally, what would Amanda want? She'd want to find her mother. She's drawn to the same line of work. There are a lot of things that were arresting to me. I have no idea what the game is like. I hope it's creepy and suspenseful and engaging in a way that other games are not - an experience."

In response - Polygon offers a reminder/reality check about Pre-Orders. [Don't Feed The Pre-Ordering Monster]

I really want to believe that this could be the 'Alien' Game we have all been wanting for years, But I've been let down so many times by Alien games that I find it hard to get too excited by this.

Short clip, but definitely makes a good point. Why would you want to alert them to your position?
