Aliens: Dark Descent New Trailer Shows Off Real-Time Tactics Gameplay

Matt Lorrigan

Focus Entertainment has dropped a new gameplay overview trailer for Aliens: Dark Descent, better showing off what to expect from the game ahead of its launch next month.

The game features a fully-fledged tactical campaign, and this latest trailer gave us a good look at the mission-based structure and squad-management gameplay, that will look very familiar to any fans of the recent XCOM games.

In the field, your squad of marines will react intelligently to your orders and move as a squad, and if the action gets too overwhelming, players can slow down time to focus on tactical decisions within the head of battle. Xenomorphs adapt to player behaviour over time, and players will have to manage their squad's health and stress levels, with any decisions proving permenant across the course of the story-driven campaign.

You can check it all out for yourself in the gameplay overview trailer down below.

Aliens: Dark Descent launches on Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One, PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4, and PC on 20th June 2023

  • Watched the video... Looks like it could be a lot of fun. Hopefully, that ends up being the case.
  • I really wish I had the time for this game as well as my other games still to play.
