Work On Alien: Isolation Wraps Up As SEGA Unveils Terrifying New Trailer


To celebrate Alien: Isolation achieving gold status — meaning the first-person scarefest is finished and ready for distribution — publisher SEGA has unveiled an eerie new trailer aptly titled No Escape.

The teaser trailer, which you can check out above, is the first of nine short clips which will be released periodically in the build-up to the title’s release in October. Starring our protagonist Amanda Ripley, the footage showcases the kind of terrifying, Outlast-like vulnerability we can expect come release.

In essence, the story of Isolation takes place a full fifteen years after the events of Ridley Scott’s seminal 1979 film and will place players in the shoes of the aforementioned heroine. After travelling into deep space in the search of a wayward flight recorder from the doomed Nostromo, Amanda ends up on board the Sevastopol where a deadly Xenomorph has already made itself at home. (And that’s where you come in.)

Those who choose to pre-order Alien: Isolation ahead of time will be entitled to two slices of story-related DLC that feature the ragtag cast from the film — including Ellen Ripley herself. Although, it’s worth keeping in mind that that same content will become available for all users further down the line following an outcry from the game’s fanbase.

Alien: Isolation will slither and slime its way onto PlayStation 4, Xbox One, PlayStation 3, Xbox 360 and PC on October 7th, 2014. Until then, let us know your thoughts on SEGA’s shot at redemption — following the calamitous Colonial Marines — in the comments section below.
