Creative Assembly has finally confirmed a release date for its eagerly anticipated survival-horror title, Alien: Isolation. Taking to the stage at Eurogamer’s EGX Rezzed event, the studio confirmed that it will let the xenomorph out of the cage on October 7th, 2014.
“We couldn’t be happier to finally announce a date for Alien: Isolation,” Creative Assembly’s Alistair Hope said. “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.”
In the game, players will assume the role of one Amanda Ripley; daughter of Ellen and employee at the devious Weyland-Yutani organisation. Moreover, Alien: Isolation will take place fifteen years after the events of Ridley Scott’s seminal 1979 film, which lends Creative Assembly the opportunity to add its own narrative slice into the Alien lore.
Opting for a purist and atmospheric horror experience, it’s understood that the title will feature one single xenomorph, which will stalk the shadows of the Sevastopol space station — the game’s setting. Not only that, Creative Assembly’s Giger-inspired creation has been designed to be completely adaptable, forcing you to rely on your instincts in order to outsmart the galaxy’s apex predator.
Alien: Isolation will hope to make Colonial Marines seem like a bygone memory when it launches across PS4, PS3, Xbox 360, Xbox One and PC on October 7th, 2014.
