Sega Announce Alien: Isolation, a Survival Horror Game Based On Ridley Scott’s 1979 Masterpiece

Today Sega strode forth to announce Alien: Isolation, a new title based upon Ridley Scott’s classic film Alien. The game is being developed by Creative Assembly and promises to stay true to the tone and style of the legendary film.

“In Alien: Isolation, we have taken the series back to the roots of Ridley Scott’s 1979 movie, the original survival horror,” said Alistair Hope, Creative Lead at Creative Assembly. “Our Alien is a truly terrifying creature, as intelligent as he is hostile, relentless, brutal and unstoppable. This is the Alien game fans of the series have always wanted.”

“Creative Assembly has created a truly incredible gaming experience, capturing perfectly the very core of what has made the Alien franchise remain relevant after 35 years,” said Jeffrey Godsick, president of Twentieth Century Fox Consumer Products. “This partnership has led to the creation of a game that is simply outstanding and sets the tone for what is to come this year for the 35th anniversary of Alien.”

Given the unmitigated disaster that was Aliens: Colonial Marines Sega have some considerable making up to do to fans, yet if the trailer and released information are anything to go by Isolation may just be the Alien game we’ve been waiting for. According the press release players will find themselves trapped on a space station, being hunted by a single, deadly, brutal, vicious Xenomorph. You’ll need to scavenge supplies and improvise to stay alive.

Should Creative Assembly be able to pull it off this could be a fantastic game. While I’m far from excited for Isolation (it’s far too early yet) you can consider my interest piqued.

Alien: Isolation will be released in late 2014 for Xbox One, PS4, PS3, Xbox 360 and PC.

I always hate writing about myself, it's such a pain in the ass to know where I should start. I'm twenty-two years young and love to play, as you may have already guessed. When WolfsGamingBlog.com started up it was simply because I found writing to be a good form of stress relief for when my Cystic Fibrosis was getting me down or simply because I had been having a bad week. When I started writing I never dreamed that people would actually read it, or that it would ever get this big. It's mind boggling. My writing isn't the best, but through trial, error and the comments of readers I strive to improve it so I can provide fair reviews. My ultimate goal is to prove that not everyone in the gaming media are corrupt idiots intent on delivering false reviews. Other than that I'm a fully qualified lifeguard and used to teach first-aid and life-saving skills to kids. What more is there to say? Hmmm, well I love music, reading and films. I'm a drummer, enjoy going swimming and tend to get distracted by shiny objects. Is that a fifty-pence?
