Alien: Isolation release date has been announced

Finally the release date for Alien: Isolation has been announced. The developers have revealed that the game will be launching on October 7, 2014.

Alien: Isolation is a new stealthy survival horror game and it will be coming to the Xbox One, PlayStation 4, the older generation PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 as well as Windows PC from the 7th of October this year.

“Instead of following a predetermined path, the artificial intelligence of the Alien has been programmed to actively hunt the player by sight, sound and smell. The Alien AI was programmed with a complex set of behavioural designs that progressively unlock as it encounters the player to create the illusion that the Alien is learning from its encounters with the player and adjusting it’s hunting strategy appropriately.

This includes the ability for the Alien to investigate “secondary sources” of disturbances; for instance if it notices a locker or air lock is open, the Alien will search for who opened it.

The Alien emits vocalisations which the player can listen for to gain understanding of its current intentions; a scream may indicate that the creature is about to attack, while other sounds may indicate the Alien has seen something, is searching, or has lost all trace of its prey”

There has been some anticipation for the game and it this title is supposed to be a fresh start for this franchise after the disaster with Alien: Colonial Marines. The game is expected to scare the crap out of you and we hope it sticks to that.
