A recent listing on the Xbox Marketplace for Alien: Isolation has provided some juicy details as well as some leaked screens of Creative Assembly’s upcoming shooter that SEGA desperately hopes to right the ship after Gearbox Software shit the bed with Aliens: Colonial Marines.
Here’s the listing’s description of the title:
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.
We already knew that players would take the role of Amanda, but these new details are fun to read. Additonally, the game will support online features, including content downloads (no brainer) and leaderboards (whut?).
