Ripley's daughter takes the lead role.
Back in October, a trademark filing suggested that Creative Assembly's 'Alien' project would be named 'Alien: Isolation.'
Now the game has appeared in a listing on the Xbox Marketplace, and the details ought to be intriguing for 'Alien' fans.
Here is the game's description:
"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."
At one point in development, the game was meant to be similar to 'Dead Space 2' and seems to have retained both shooter and scavenger elements.
