Gamers and horror fans, the time has come to mark what will be probably one of the most important games to be released in 2014. 1979 film Alien is being given a video game sequel which will be available on PS3, PS4, Xbox 360 and Xbox One. The game, set around 15 years after the plot of Ridley Scott’s Alien is the story of Ellen Ripley’s daughter Amanda as she looks to find her mother. This search leads her to the space station Sevastopol where she searches for the flight recorder to the Nostromo to learn what happened to her mother. The space station is also attacked by an Alien and the search becomes a game of survival.
Due out this October, the game looks set to challenge similar survival horror games such as Dead Space and Silent Hill. With a special DLC which takes place during the 1979 film and bringing in cast members from the original Alien film (this includes Sigourney Weaver, Tom Skerritt, Veronica Cartwright, Harry Dean Stanton and Yaphet Kotto). So keep your eyes peeled and look out for what may be the best movie-based video game of the year!
