Alien: Isolation set for late 2014: First trailer, screens released

Sega promises "thrilling first-person horror experience"

Sega has officially announced first-person horror game Alien Isolation, which is set for release on PS4, Xbox One, PC, PS3 and Xbox 360 in late 2014.

As previously reported, the game is in development at Total War studio The Creative Assembly and will star Amanda Ripley, the daughter of protagonist Ellen in the first two Alien movies.

Isolation is described as "a thrilling first-person survival horror experience" that Sega says will focus on "capturing the horror and tension evoked by Ridley Scott's 1979 classic film."

The game takes place on a decommissioned trading station in the fringes of space, on which players find themselves hunted by a single Xenomorph.

Creative Assembly claims to have created an intelligent and unpredictable AI for the alien foe, with players challenged to "work on instinct" to survive its predatory skills.

"Our Alien is a truly terrifying creature, as intelligent as he is hostile, relentless, brutal and unstoppable," creative lead Alistair Hope said in a statement. "This is the Alien game fans of the series have always wanted."

Twentieth Century Fox's consumer producaters president, Jeffrey Godsick added: "Creative Assembly has created a truly incredible gaming experience, capturing perfectly the very core of what has made the Alien franchise remainrelevant after 35 years.

"This partnership has led to the creation of a game that is simply outstanding and sets the tone for what is to come this year for the 35th anniversary of Alien."
