I love the Alien franchise so much, and it frustrated me to see SEGA fuck it up last time. Aliens: Colonial Marines was hands down the worst of the bunch, with Alien vs. Predator becoming a lackluster second worst since the first AvP title originally developed by Rebellion and published by Fox Interactive.
It looks like SEGA finally got its act together with the next installment, Alien: Isolation.
So far, I’m digging Isolation. It looks great and vastly different from Colonial Marines.
Alien: Isolation is expected to drop in the summer for the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, PlayStation 3, and Xbox 360. PC owners can pre-order the game at GameFly for $49.99.
Discover the true meaning of fear in Alien: Isolation, a survivalset in an atmosphere of constant dread and mortal danger. Fifteen years after the events of Alien, Ellen Ripley’s daughter, Amanda enters a desperate battle for survival on a mission to unravel the truth behind her mother’s disappearance. As Amanda, you will navigate through an increasingly volatile world as you find yourself confronted on all sides by a panicked, desperate population and an unpredictable, ruthless Alien. Underpowered and underprepared, you must scavenge resources, improvise solutions and use your wits, not just to succeed in your mission, but also to simply stay alive.
