Alien: Isolation Synopsis Appears Online
Written Tuesday, January 07, 2014 By Lee BradleyView author's profile
A product listing for the as-yet unannounced, yet decidedly leaky Alien: Isolation appeared on xbox.com overnight.
According to the listing, which has now been pulled, The Creative Assembly developed title is out on “1/7/2014” and is characterised as an “Action & Adventure, Shooter” with four-player co-op multiplayer.
Most interesting, however, was the tantalising synopsis of the game’s plot. It reads:
“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.”
Sounds good to us. You can see the previously leaked screenshots from the game here.
