New Aliens Game On The Way

Well we all know it’s been very quiet on the Colonial Marines front but don’t mind them. Looks like we’ve got another Alien based game on the way:

“Total War developer Creative Assembly is making a game based on the Alien franchise. At a press event at Creative Assembly’s Horsham, West Sussex base this morning the developer revealed it is hiring for the project, which it said was for a “console core game”.

I’m not overly familar with the Total War series but it looks to be an RTS series. Could we be seeing a more epic Aliens vs Marines RTS? Watch this space. You can see the entire announcement at EuroGamer. Just from Creative Assembly’s website, it looks like this will be done under Sega too. Thanks to the few emails and tweets on the news.

    cant say I've played that one, my issues with them extend from control methods, last one i attempted to play way c&c generals on the N64, I'm also not a fan of fps on consoles for the same reason, PC is where they should live, or at least with a keyboard and mouse.

    why is everyone assuming it will be total war based? it's much more likely it will be based on the Viking: Battle for Asgard game that they also made, which was published by Sega, and was also a R rated current gen console based game made by creative assembly, i'm pretty confident that it will use the same engine, and by the sounds of things said in articles (that it's peers will be Dead Space and RDR) it sounds liek it will be a TPS, Viking was a Thirsd Person hack'n'slash, adding shooting wouldn't be too difficult.

    Ohhh you guys are in for a treat. Funny thing is, the two main forums I visit on the internet are avpgalaxy.net and twcenter.net. I AM A BIG TOTAL WAR FAN! They are amazing games, with many hundreds of amazing community mods. Expect this to be refreshing development if anything. I was just at twcenter before I came to check the AVP news actually. It's confusing when you start to see Creative Assembly on both websites...

    I wonder if we'll play as a human or an alien in this game. If we play as a human, it would be fun to have the same  sort of scanario as in Alien, were you would be unarmed and try to survive against the Alien. could be pretty intense.

    I hope we play as human i hate to take alien sides .. kinda like avp games... human is best for me. :D
    I just hope its more horror than action... of course bring in the action, we cant have a alien game without some kind of action.. but i just hope its done right.



    and huol up there its cool :D

    wait, these guys are in Horsham? according to Google, that's only a 40 minute drive from where i live!
    i could get a job on an aliens game!!

    now if only i was a game developer, had any appropriate skills, and could drive.

    if it is alien based, i'm thinking it will be mostly horror with little or no action at all, probably lots of puzzles, which would be interesting, since most survival horror games have gone the action route recently

    thats why i say ... why they use alien and not aliens Course alien wouldent fit for a dead space 2 as they compare it too. aliens would fit more for that with little horror and more action.

    if its like dead space 2 i guess we will get a 3rd person shooter kinda like yeah dead space ( of courese XD ) and
    resident evil operation raccoon city.

    im not sure how well that will work in a alien game, hmm but lets wait an see for more information.

    Or if they talk like uuum in scaryness... and the whole horror feeling to it then i cant see how it can fit with just alien...
    Because dead space 2 is a pretty action packed game ..so it would make more sense to put it up with aliens

    but oh well lets wait an see.

    Dead space isn't scary.
