This isn’t much but Obsidian is advertising the position of Senior Engine Programmer for their upcoming Aliens RPG project and they’ve released these little details regarding the game:
“3rd Person, GAME ENGINE, R&D / New Technology, RPG, Sci-Fi, Squad Based”
For the more educated, the page also talks more about the language the game will be using but for us, its the quote above. I think the most interesting is that the game will be squad based. For those interested, you can view the page here. Thanks to Sh0dan for the heads up.
