The iconic Xenomorph in Alien Isolation is intended to be "intelligent, unpredictable and dangerous," according to the design team working on the game.
Publisher Sega has released a new video of the game's key developers at UK studio Creative Assembly, who discuss their ambitions for the next-gen game.
Al Hope, the creative lead, says Alien Isolation is "a game where you'll never feel safe".
