The lights are on
Alien: Isolation is bringing back the horror from the first film, which is a departure from the past few games based on the Aliens license. A new trailer shows how developer The Creative Assembly is building their alien to be the ruthless hunter we first met.
The video doesn't feature too many lingering shots of the xenomorph, so you'll have to keep your eyelids wide open if you want to see the creature. As the team describes (and as I wrote about in an earlier preview), the game is built around an alien A.I. that's aware of its surroundings and acts accordingly, as opposed to relying on preset paths. It was effective when I played it, and the clip is a reminder of why it works so well.
Alien: Isolation is set for a late 2014 release on the PC, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, PlayStation 3, and Xbox 360.

As long as they keep it at just one Alien for an enemy, then this shall be an enjoyable experience.
I am keeping my eye on this game.Hopefully it turns out well.
I love Alien, so I'm extremely excited for this. It could turn out to be crap, but for right now, I am going to be optimistic about it.
Well here is hoping I am not disappointed with this one. I have hope, but we shall see.
I am hoping its alot like Outlast by Red Barrel Games. Loved everything about it. I see this as being probably the best Alien game to date.
I want the aliens to be as ruthless and frightening as never before! if that happens, then this will be a great game!
This could be the one we've been waiting for.
No matter how many times I've watched the movies, played the games or dream about the scary experience my skin always crawls just knowing a Xenomorph could be right around the corner. No matter how happy I am to get all the information about this game each time I constantly have to keep myself reserved due to the terrible showing Alien has produced within the last few years. Prometheus was a complete slap in the face to any original Alien fan and the game of AVP just didn't do the right things to get the player to feel like death is unavoidable when dealing with a Xenomorph. Finally, Alien: Colonial Marine is the main reason why I'm not getting my hopes up about this game. With how excited and overjoyed I was with each trailer, it was a terrible failure that will be hard to overlook in the Alien catalog.
I will pre-order this game, I will jump at the chance to get the collector's edition if one is made but I will be waiting until the last possible minute to find out if this one will need to be rented first. Come on Sega, make the Alien fans proud and give us something long overdue!
This looks like it will be absolutely AMAZING! I can't wait to hear more about the Alien's AI and how it will react to the player.
Words cannot describe how excited I am! Though after Colonial Marines, I am afraid of being this pumped.
it would be interesting if you can play with other players, just they're on their own also in another part of the maze. all trying to reach the same objective. if one dies you can hear their screams then just silence.. that would be epic and pretty scary.
