Trademarks were found for an upcoming Alien game being developed by Creative Assembly back in October, and it seems that the game has now been officially announced as it has found itself being advertised on the Xbox Live Game Store.
The blurb on the Game Store reads, “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.“
There are also five screenshots (along with the box art) which can be seen on Xbox.com.
We’re also led to believe that the game was said to feature both single-player, and four-player co-op but the latter has since been removed from the information given about the title.
*Update* – and here’s a trailer, released just a short while ago.
