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.
