It’s no deep secret that SEGA disappointed us with the last installment of the Alien Franchise – Colonial Marines. The game underperformed on all levels, from the extremely slap-dash graphics to the half-hearted story-arc which resulted in mediocre and choppy gameplay.
Well let’s hope that SEGA have got it right this time. They have released an official synopsis and a trailer and it all seems to be shaping up rather nicely with atone and look that seems to be perfectly captured in the segment, so let’s hope the gameplay delivers. Here is the official synopsis announced by SEGA:
“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.”
There seems to be a lot of positivity surrounding this one however, some gamers are complaining about the lack of an online feature. But, the developers have explained why there are no online features and the hint lies in the title, with emphasis on the word Isolation.
Alien: Isolation will be released on October 7 for the PlayStation 4, PlayStation 3, Xbox One, Xbox 360 and PC.
Check out the trailer, which encapsulates the vibe of the first two films.
