The upcoming survival horror game Alien: Isolation was featured today at EGX Rezzed in a special panel with The Creative Assembly, where it received an official release date. Alien: Isolation will come out on October 7, 2014 for the PS4, Xbox One, PC, PS3, and Xbox 360.

The Creative Assembly also discussed how Isolation will draw on the aesthetics of the original Alien film, from the “lo-fi sci-fi” technology to the architecture. An incredible amount of research and work went into giving the game an authentic Alien appearance.

The Alien will have non-scripted behavior, which will adapt to the environment and the player’s actions. Players will have to react to its behavior, as well, to know if they’ve been noticed. Since the Alien can go anywhere in its search for the player, there are numerous routes throughout each area so players can hide and/or escape.

Check out the Twitch archives to see the full panel. This is looking like a great survival horror game, and we can’t wait to see how scary it will be. Let us know what you think, and if you were lucky enough to attend EGX, share your impressions of Alien: Isolation!

Fans of the 1979 film Alien should be keeping their eyes on Alien: Isolation, the upcoming survival horror game that promises to stay true to the atmosphere and mood of the original movie.

The Creative Assembly spent last weak teasing details about the game. Each day, from Monday-Friday, they released something new, from images to a sample of the game’s soundtrack. On Friday, they also released a new piece of concept art, which gives us another glimpse of the mood they’re planning of this game.

They’ve since compiled all five teases onto a single page and asked if anyone can figure out what they’re building up to. So far, this game is shaping up to be one of the most interesting releases the survival horror genre has seen lately. Let us know your thoughts on Alien: Isolation.
