Watch our final Insider Video of this behind-the-scenes series as our studio developers reveal further details about the game’s narrative and its lead characters. With new footage, including in-game cut scenes and information, we also divulge what went in to the casting of real-life actors and the motion capture technology used to bring our characters to life.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.As Amanda, you will navigate through an increasingly volatile world as you find yourself confronted on all sides by a panicked, desperate population and an unpredictable, ruthless Alien.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.
To stay faithful to the original source, Alien: Isolation takes a retro look to the future with a design aesthetic which developer Creative Assembly describes as lo-fisci-fi. It’s clunky, it’s chunky, it’s push-button and analogue. There are no phasers or lasers, and the smartest weapons you find may be tied together with duct tape and string. A world very much of CRT not LCD, Alien: Isolation may be set in the future but it’s very much baked in the past.
Well at least this could be what people say when the game comes out. For now the trailer of Alien: Isolation has not only solid graphics, but a neat story idea. You’ll play as the daughter of Ripley who with limited resources has to survive the alien nightmare.
