Posted elsewhere, but probably deserves its own thread. This will likely be taken down soon, but after last month's leaks of art and screenshots, I'm expecting an official announcement any day now.

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.

Just what I was thinking. Though there seems to be some consensus that it's a new IP.

The description interests me, but I'm worried this will be just another shooter.

They nailed the atmosphere though, so fingers crossed.

Though I would argue that this doesn't fit on a game informer cover if they're trying to break in new IP for this year and next year. Also, look at say...the Online Features, this is going to be a next generation game? It seems more like a downloadable title more than anything else, nothing substantial. Of course I could be wrong.

edit, also look at its release date. You can almost bet this is going to be downloadable and not the cover of GI.

Is this next-gen only? Hopefully this is the game I have been waiting for, I would love to play it on next-gen hardware at 1080p. Looking forward to the PS4 release, but I wonder if the Wii U will get shafted again like with Colonial Marines.

The release date isn't the game's release date lol, it's not releasing tomorrow, that seems like some sort of embargo or just a typo. I'm not sure how the online features give off the vibe that it's just a downloadable game...

There have been plenty of GI covers to break in new IP. Just 2 months ago we had Middle-Earth: Shadow of Mordor.

A part of me wants this to be the GI reveal so we can get information on this but the other part of me is telling me that it's impossible to make a good Alien game that putting a dev team who has been making strategy games for the last 14+ years maybe sort of isn't the best choice?

Don't get me wrong i love the franchise and creative assembly made some of my favorite franchises but them doing a survival horror? I don't know about that.

Fair point...though I was thinking a next generation Aliens game would be a lot more robust?

A co-op game in a moody, Riddick-esque facility with crazed denizens and an insta-kill Xenomorph? Sounds sexy.

The images I've seen in the GI cover thread look phenomenal. But I think after Colonial Marines, most people are thinking "Game over man".

Reading through the Alien vault is not a good way to stay rational when it comes to new 'Alien' products. I know I shouldn't get my hopes but there is a great Alien game waiting out there.

Maybe it already exists. I still haven't opened the DS game yet.

What multiplatform games from Western developers don't have PC versions these days (other than Destiny, I guess)? I wouldn't worry.

May not be the Game Informer cover, or Kotaku had the rumor wrong. They said it was going to be both current and next-gen:

And, not that it needs to be said seeing as it's an Aliens game, but keep hype levels in check.

Can't say I like the look of that motion tracker, but everything else looks excellent. Then again, so did Colonial Marines.

Indeed it does, if it's a down to earth survival horror alien game that's not a botched demo I wouldn't mind giving it a shot. Look at those shiny shiny polygons :3

Aaaand pack it up folks, we're done here. I honestly didn't believe anyone could fuck it up in exactly the same way as Gearbox; I thought at the very least it would be atrociously bad in a completely different manner.

This was blown way out of proportion in previous threads, IMO. The game being too combat-oriented is a legit concern, but there is nothing inherently wrong with most of the enemies being human (or humanoid) if it serves to increase the tension when the Xenomorph appears.
