SEGA unveils the Alien Isolation launch trailer

alien-isolation-bannerWell, this is it.  The time has come to see if Alien Isolation can become the game all Alien fans have been waiting for, or if it will just be added to the mountain of past failures.  If the brand new launch trailer is any indication, at least the team at The Creative Assembly has gotten the mood right.  Read on to see the trailer for yourself. 

If you’ve been avoiding news on Alien Isolation, trust me, I don’t blame you.  The cuts left behind by Colonial Marines are deep, and take time to heal.  But Alien Isolation seems to have been made as a direct response to that smoldering crater of a game.  Set 15 years after the events of the original Alien film, the game places you in the role of Amanda Ripley, Ellen’s daughter, who has been lured to a derelict outpost in hopes of finding the Nostromo’s black box, and learning the fate of her mother and her doomed ship.   The game removes the gun heavy action of previous Alien games, and replaces it with a survival horror play style, pitting the player against a single Alien adversary, who hunts and stalks you throughout the game.  Early reviews have been generally mixed to positive, with most of the praise being focused on the game’s horror elements, as well as its visual and audio design.  Whether or not Alien Isolation will become a success remains to be seen, but at the very least, it’s given Alien fans something new to talk about.  Check out the launch trailer below.

Alien Isolation is out tomorrow for PC, PS3, PS4, Xbox 360 and Xbox One.

Pleeeeease be good. Oh please oh please oh pleeeeeease be good.

    Joe was born in a time of war. A console war. Two electronic titans were locked in a heated battle for the living rooms of America. Which titans, you ask? Well, the Fairchild Channel F and the Atari 2600 of course. You see, Joe is old. So many of his favorite games tend to be on the older side as well. But that hasn’t stopped him from developing unhealthy obsessions with such modern franchises as Halo and Mass Effect. Just don’t tell him how long it’s been since the original Metroid was released. His aging heart can’t take the shock.
