The Biggest Alien In An Alien Game Stalks You In Isolation

The Biggest Alien in an Alien Game Stalks You in Isolation

The largest alien in an Alien video game is in Alien: Isolation, and it's the only one you'll face in the upcoming survival horror game from Creative Assembly. This looks like one of those games that will kill me about eleventy-billion times during the course of finishing it. So, get used to seeing a lot of this.

This 10-minute discussion features many good looks at the environment and gameplay while the studio explains the "haunted house in space," concept it's shooting for. "Most previous alien games have been about mowing aliens down en masse," says John from Creative Assembly. That would definitely describe Aliens: Colonial Marines, in which the xenomorphs were decidedly un-threatening.

Creative Assembly says they have been working on the game for three years. This video showcases PlayStation 4 gameplay; the game will also release on the Xbox One and PC.

    If there is any indication of it not looking like the trailer, abandon all hope. Yes I am that nervous.

    I thought this would be terrible, but CA are behind this so I have high hopes. It will be buggy as hell but will turn out to be amazing.

    I've heard people talking about this, particularly the Two Best Friends crew. Some are worried they'll try to "mix it up" with direct FPS combat against humans. Some are worried if they don't it will get very boring real quick (unless it's short).

    But hey, I guess if no publisher comes in and forces them to make it like CoD, it might turn out good.

    Honestly, just make it the walking dead adventure game with aliens or Amnesia with aliens

      I think that's what they're going after, a more survival horror type of game, rather than an FPS like all the other ones that have come out.

    I'd imagine it would need more than running and hiding from an alien

    "We want to go back to the original movie".... yeah, yeah, yeah. Heard all this crap before. Wont be getting excited until its actually released and reviews are out. Colonial Marines was such a disaster and AvP a mediocre game I just dont trust SEGA with this franchise.

    Loving the fact they've gone back to HR Geigers Alien design rather than James Camerons insectile alien design, the smooth head rather than the notched head, skull under the transparent dome. Can't wait to try this out :D

    What does this even mean?

    FWIW the Alien queen was in one of the original AvP games, is this alien larger than that somehow?

      In one of the interviews, they said it was 3 metres tall. So it would be taller than the queen (unless she's on that nest thing with the thing that emits eggs). (Yeah, I'm too lazy to google the correct terms).

      I hope they have a reasonable explanation for why the alien is larger than normal.

        The Queen is 20 feet high, so about 6 metres.
