SEGA and Twentieth Century Fox have announced Alien: Isolation, a new survival horror game set in the Alien universe. The game is being developed by Creative Assembly, the team best known for the Total War series of strategy games. "In Alien: Isolation, we have taken the series back to the roots of Ridley Scott's 1979 movie, the original survival horror," said Alistair Hope, Creative Lead at Creative Assembly. "Our Alien is a truly terrifying creature, as intelligent as he is hostile, relentless, brutal and unstoppable. This is the Alien game fans of the series have always wanted." The game is a part of Twentieth Century Fox's year-long plan to celebrate the 35th anniversary of Ridley Scott's original Alien film, which debuted in 1979. "Creative Assembly has created a truly incredible gaming experience, capturing perfectly the very core of what has made the Alien franchise remain relevant after 35 years," said Jeffrey Godsick, president of Twentieth Century Fox Consumer Products. "This partnership has led to the creation of a game that is simply outstanding and sets the tone for what is to come this year for the 35th anniversary of Alien." The game is scheduled to be released in late 2014 for Playstation 4, Xbox One, Playstation 3, Xbox 360 and Windows PC.
