Get ready to travel back to the Nostromo as Amanda Ripley continues her journey to learn what really happened to her mother 15 years ago.
As we previously reported, an Alien: Isolation digital series would soon be released, but it’s coming much earlier than we expected – today, actually. The seven-episode series will debut at 9 a.m. PT exclusively on IGN.
According to IGN, the series takes the cutscenes from Alien: Isolation and not so much as expands on them but creates a new animation experience to add additionally layers to the story of Ellen Ripley’s daughter. The goal was to offer new depth to a story that many gamers would have already experienced in 2014’s release, and also tell the story in a newly accessible way for those who haven’t.
“Fox worked with developers and production partners Reverse Engineering Studios and DVgroup to create this new series, which includes a combination of brand-new scenes that are rendered from scratch, cinematics that are taken directly from the game, and first-person scenes from the game that were re-shot and edited for this new telling of Amanda Ripley’s story,” IGN stated.
