Alien: Isolation spotted on Xbox Live Game Store

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.

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.

Golden Axe Reborn – The SEGA Game That Never Made It To XBLA

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rr5J3s4GTBQ

It probably all started with the 2.5D Sonic the Hedgehog success (or not), and although the latest classic SEGA game heading for the Xbox LIVE Arcade is Mickey Mouse in the great MegaDrive hit Castle of Illusion in the next week or so. It has been discovered that other games on SEGA Australia’s hit list for a current gen scrub up was Golden Axe, Shinobi and Streets of Rage – but their story was to be tied into the same universe under a SEGA Reborn studio.

The Unity pitch trailer for the Golden Axe game that never was is shown above – and the whole idea for the three titles to link together set in the same universe will never happen. We love sharing the good news, at least you get to save a few quid on games you might have just bought for nostalgic reasons.

Move along…

Cheers Kotaku
