The last video game based on the Aliens movies didn’t turn out so well. But hope spring eternal with a franchise as popular and enduring as that one, which is why there is a sense of anticpation for Alien: Isolation, an upcoming game from Creative Assembly that inspires to give players the feeling they first had when watching Ridley Scott’s iconic 1979 film Alien. In case you’ve somehow never seen it, said feeling would be terror.
The survival horror title’s release date will be announced this weekend at EGX Rezzed, a show devoted to PC, console and indie gaming taking place at the National Exhibition Centre in Birmingham, England. Eurogamer.net will live-stream the reveal, which will take place during the Creative Assembly developer session. Alien: Isolation is slated to release on PS4, Xbox One, Ps3, Xbox 360 and PC.
EGX Rezzed is open to the public and features hands-on opportunities with games on all types of platforms, developer sessions and more. Speakers scheduled to appear include DayZ creator Dean Hall, Dreamfall Chapters director Ragnar Tornquist, Volume creator Mike Bithell and Alien: Isolation creative lead Alistair Hope.
Tickets are still available along with a complete list of playable games and events at egxrezzed.net.
