This is CA's Alien game.

Well, they've at least captured the look!

On the other hand I'm excited what they can cook up.

One of their best games isn't an RTS at all (Spartan).

It's not that I don't trust them with a new genre, but we already had Alien in FPS form. I'd like to see them try a different genre.
The canceled Alien RPG by Obsidian would have also been a nice change.

Looks good, hopefully it will turn out well.

BTW anyone know what engine they're using? maybe it's UE3 since it's a cross gen release, wondering how the last gen versions will look. :P

Something similar to Dead Space 1 in atmosphere, isolation, pacing, audio design, will be perfect for Alien. the less shooter the better.

Hopefully it turn to be good, last good game with Xenomorphs was Aliens versus Predator 2 on PC and that was ages ago.

I can't help but feel a little excited because it's based on the Alien franchise but I'm going to make sure I keep my expectations in check after what happened with the last Alien game.

Very pretty. Hopefully they will be able to create right kind of atmosphere and story that doesn't rape Alien franchise further more into the ground.

Yeah, well, Gearbox "captured the look" in early screenshots as well.



Please be good.

I hope the motion tracker has that typical 70s monitor screen flickering.

Agreed. The last DLC, Stasis Interrupted, was great, even.

Maybe this time it lives up to its potential. Maybe this time we get a Wii U version with IR aiming and motion tracker on the GamePad.

It won't happen :(

I don't think Fox particularly cares since it's just licensing out the IP and the franchise is chiefly known to people via films. Nobody is going to say to themselves, "Well, Colonial Marines was crap, so I'm not going to see Prometheus 2."

(They'll say the same thing about the original Prometheus instead. ;))

I had afew hours fun with the multiplayer. But the single player campaign was brutal imo. (after the update)


That shot in the OP looks pretty cool though. Still, nothing will get me hyped for this game, bar a run of excellent reviews after it launches.

The structure/ship on that artwork definitely resembles the refinery towed by Nostromo in the first Alien movie. I think this is a good sign. If they try to capture the essence of the series, this might actually turn out to be good.

Entire Nostromo and rafinery blew up in Alien 1, and xenomorph was ejected into space after it tried to hide in escape pod.

Did queen in Aliens managed to survive coldness of space while she traveled on the outside of dropship? Was she inside of the dropship? I dont recall...
