Xbox Live Marketplace Lists Alien: Isolation

Additional material from the upcoming game Alien: Isolation by Creative Assembly and Sega has surfaced online today. As we recently revealed, the previously leaked material was being dumped from XBL and now the game itself has been publicly listed on XBL here. The Xbox Live Marketplace overview describes the game as an action and adventure shooter that features online MP and co-op, up to 4 players.

You can find the rest of the leaked material, including a screenshot showing the H.R. Giger Alien, below:

“Discover the true meaning of fear in Alien: Isolation, a survival horror set in an atmosphere of constant dread and mortal danger. Fifteen years after the events of Alien™, Ellen Ripley’s daughter, Amanda enters a desperate battle for survival, on a mission to unravel the truth behind her mother’s disappearance. As Amanda, you will navigate through an increasingly volatile world as you find yourself confronted on all sides by a panicked, desperate population and an unpredictable, ruthless Alien. Underpowered and underprepared, you must scavenge resources, improvise solutions and use your wits, not just to succeed in your mission, but to simply stay alive.”

Thanks to Chaotic-Strike for the news.

Update 07/01/2014: Sega has now confirmed that Alien: Isolation doesn’t feature co-op or MP.

    Yeah, I remember when they were filming the original Alien film, Sigourney was dressed up to be very 'feminine' shall we say by the warddrobe department. Riddles didn't like the way she looked so sent her back to get a much more grungy look about her. I can't remember if he sorted out her apparel personally or not.

    Looks like that listing was pretty wrong.

    There was an error in reporting earlier today about a feature of the game stating multiplayer and co-op features for Alien: Isolation. There will be no help, no solace, no escape from the Universe’s deadliest killer. Please let us know if you’d like to discuss further.

    Interesting clarifications! And, man... the articles linked over there are spilling a lot of good news!

    Okay everyone give them the bennefit of the doubt. This isn´t colonial marines but another alien game by a different developer. Dont discount them because someone like sega/Gearbox desided to release a game that was anything but a finished product.

    The whole "ripleys daughter thing" sounds okay to me but why cant we have a game that put NEW caracters in the alien universe and expose them to one of the most terrifying aliens ever created.

    The devs can't make the AI of a whole horde of aliens to be challenging, let alone of just one alien  ::) Unless they removed the weapons like in Amnesia, the game will be piss easy to fight against just one xeno. Its either that or there is still one xeno but we are fighting against WY mercs and synthetics  :laugh:

    I think playing as Amanda is a brilliant idea! I've been waiting long for an Alien game, not Aliens. It all sounds great so far! Love the feeling of faithfulness to the first movie I'm getting from this.

    Bro.....dont insult the fragging of someone. Anyway,from the what ive seen it looks outstanding. But im not getting excited over it yet. But I have high hopes on it. As far as story, I dont really care about that in Alien any more as no one else seems to care in the corporate buildings.

    I gotta agree the Alien looks great - at this stage.  This model may be for promo purposes only and not be the final design appearing in the game. 

    I'm still very, very cautious about this title.  Playing as Amanda Ripley is just lol-worthy and has me concerned.  Way to shackle your creativity there, dear invested corporate parties.  Keep it conservative like that and you'll have another 'ALIENS: Colonial Marines' on your hands.  This is a mold you need to break out of; not be suffocated by it. 

    Coz that's the way it's heading at the moment.

    That Alien sure looks lovely. I like the idea of just a single Alien but I'll be worried about how they'll maintain variation - are we going to see many many humans?

    Still disappointed we're going to be playing as Amanda but I'll give it a shot and see just how Creative Assembly handle it.

    This sounds interesting, maybe we'll finally get an alien game where you get to be around as everything is falling apart.

    I wonder how this co-op and multiplayer will turn out though, 4 players is way to small for anything like a deathmatch.

    Holy shit, there's only one alien in this game? That's brilliant! No more cannon fodder Aliens, no more Predators, just you and the original beast. This could be good after all.

    Odd that a game called "Isolation" has multiplayer.

    The Alien itself does look very sweet.

    Just wait, it'll have a sail tail :P

    But in all seriousness if the Alien looks close to that in game I'll go nuts.

    Gameplay sounds like it might be interesting. Really surprised (and somewhat worried) about the coop and multiplayer. Would rather they just focus on getting a singleplayer game down.

    Maybe the multiplayer will play out as a 1v3. One Alien has to find and kill all the other players before a certain time runs. And when the time runs out and a player is alive, they win through an escape pod cutscene or so.
