Alien: Isolation may be set in the future but it's very much baked in the past.
Creative Assembly's latest survival horror game, Alien: Isolation, takes gamers back to the roots of the Alien series. Now the developer is going after our heartstrings by recreating Ridley Scott's technological aesthetic from the space horror classic.
This retro look into the future brings the cold-war vibe of heavy machinery and flickering CRT monitors making deep space even more terrifying. “Alien: Isolation may be set in the future but it's very much baked in the past.”
Alien: Isolation is a survival horror game where Ellen Ripley's lost daughter – who is mentioned but never featured in the films – must survive and outwit a single alien Xenomorph. The game relies heavily on the original film's artwork and feel. As this trailer shows, some of the original artist from the film have helped with the game world and the developers have gone so far as to process parts of the title through distorted VHS tapes.
Alien: Isolation is set to drop on October 7, just in time for Halloween. For more details check the links below.
