Great news for all them folks out there who enjoyed breaking a sweat while trying to run away from the ravaging xenomorph. FoxNext Games, Fox studio’s gaming division, has recently announced that it has started working on a new Alien game. Specs and possible launch date to be announced later this year.
New Alien Game – Has the Well Run Dry Yet?
Well, it would seem that we are going to be regaled with yet another account of a lone space survivor who desperately wants to get off a ship infected by xenomorphs. This time, the baton belongs to FoxNext Games, Fox’s gaming division.
According to the developers, the latest Alien game will take running and stealth out of the equation and, instead, deliver an action-packed game. As you know, the latest game to feature the fearsome xenomorph, the 70’s-inspired cyberpunk space environment, and the half-crazed marine with an indomitable will to survive was Creative Assembly’s Alien Isolation game.
Acclaimed as one of the most intense and well-designed horror survival game of 2014, Alien Isolation really managed to capture the fear of walking right straight into a xenomorph’s jaws. According to FoxNext Games, the Cold Iron gaming studio has been commissioned to carry out the work and that we’ll be hearing from them probably sometime this year.
Unfortunately, apart from knowing that the new Alien game will be an action-packed shooter and feature some online elements, that’s all we could squeeze out of the developers.
Remember that the last Alien game which features tons of cool weapons and Xenos hitting the dirt was 2013’s Colonial Marines, developed by Gearbox Software. Well, with all the techie lying around, be sure to expect something as dazzling and mouth-watering as Isolation. The game might also be optimized to run on VR-friendly devices.
