Alien: Isolation detailed with screenshots
Details surrounding SEGA and Creative Assembly's Alien: Isolation were posted to the Xbox Games Store late last night alongside a slew of screenshots showing off the anticipated game.
A lengthy description reveals that you will, in fact, play as Amanda Ripley, daughter of Ellen Ripley, in a desperate battle for survival set fifteen years after the events of the Alien film.
Discover the true meaning of fear in Alien: Isolation, a survival horror set in an atmosphere of constant dread and mortal danger. Fifteen years after the events of Alien, Ellen Ripley’s daughter, Amanda enters a desperate battle for survival, on a mission to unravel the truth behind her mother's disappearance. As Amanda, you will navigate through an increasingly volatile world as you find yourself confronted on all sides by a panicked, desperate population and an unpredictable, ruthless Alien. Underpowered and underprepared, you must scavenge resources, improvise solutions and use your wits, not just to succeed in your mission, but to simply stay alive.
Alien: Isolation is described as an "Action & Adventure, Shooter" with 1-4 player online co-op (now removed). It also features a placeholder date of January 7 (also removed) which is a bit odd considering SEGA has yet to officially announce the game. Perhaps, the date, today, is more representative of when it'll officially be revealed.
