Sci-fi fans waiting with baited breath for the chance to get savaged by a Xenomorph finally have a set date to look forward to, after publishers Sega Europe confirmed an October 7 release for Alien: Isolation.
The survival horror title will feature Ellen Ripley's daughter, Amanda, who finds herself trapped on a space station with an Alien while investigating her mother's disappearance. Apparently said Alien is pretty much indestructible, which means Ripley has to improvise weapons, use the environment and rely on stealth and trickery in order to avoid going all John Hurt.
“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.”
Expect a simultaneous worldwide release on October 7 for PC and consoles.
