Alien Isolation Goes Gold

Yesterday IGN reported that Alien Isolation went gold. This means that the game is finalized and the discs are being prepared. And to celebrate, Sega has also released the first in a series of nine new trailers:

“For those not in the know, “gone gold” means work on the game has finished, with the final version being pressed onto discs and boxed up in preparation for you lovely people buying it.

As there’s still a month until the game launches on October 7, it seems the team decided to spend their time creating a series of trailers for periodic release in a bid to keep us alternatively excited/wetting ourselves. There’s nine of them in total, with the first viewable below:”

Thanks to Ikarop for the news.

    You clearly see it running past the window before coming through the opposite door.

    Exactly.

    Also, I don't care if the alien teleports or not. This is a GAME, not a movie.

    New vignette.

    HOLY CRAP, when the Working Joe grabbed her leg, I gasped.

    It's still an ai and I'm sure it can get stuck in certain off screen situations so it would probably have to teleport to up with the progression of the game. That working joe reminds me of bad dreams I have when I'm running from something bad and something keeps me from getting away. 0.0

    Its AI, it won't be perfect. People need to understand that.

    There were a few magazine journos saying that the alien does indeed appear to just "teleport" to other areas of the map on occasion. It'll appear on your radar one second... then the next he'll just show up in another distant part of the map.


    How can it show up on a distant part of the map if the tracker doesn't have any great range?

    It appears to be something done by the game creators to prevent the AI xeno from getting stuck in a part of the map... and to keep hunting you and the other humans throughout the game.

    one thing thats beginning to concern me about the game is this: given the amount of alien kill animations they've shown off already, how many more are there? Or have we seen them all.  I'd just hate for the scare factor of the death animations to become a novelty before anyone even picks up a copy of the game lol

    They have to give the player SOMETHING so footfalls and screams are a way letting the player know its dinner time.

    I think it kind of adds to it, but im terrified of things chasing me. I still get a little freaked out in avp2 when swarms of aliens chase me

    The alien doesn't have to move as just a biped since we see them traveling along quadruped fairly often. 



    Any big predator moves silently, if you broadcast your arrival it gives your prey a chance to run away.  But that's kind of the point in this game, you'd have no chance if the Alien could just Houdini behind you.

    Its all about weight distribution.  Predators typically develop stealth means of approach, people have been picked off boats in Asia by tigers so silently they didn't even know that other people in the boat didn't know that were missing until it was too late.  And Tigers are big animals.

    I think if the Aliens were found in nature you probably wouldn't know they were around until you were f**ked anyways.

    The heavy footfalls are just a gameplay mechanic for people that don't want to constantly use the motion tracker.
    Pretty sure having paw pads and being in the jungle plays a big part of the tiger's stealth. Are there any bipedal animals that can distribute it's weight enough to move with extreme silence on metal grates? Other than humans that is.

    But I do agree that it's definitely a game mechanic. What I'm wondering though is where those parts about how it's supposed to move quietly if it's hunting you went to. All it does is stop moving, or hide in vents.

    Even in Aliens they were silent. You really didn't know they were there until they had their teeth around your head.  Trying to out stealth the ultimate weapon of stealth is much more frightening. But all my complaints aside, I still cannot wait for this game. :)

    Not to mention for Kane's son, he teleports from scene to scene, and any sound not meant to be heard is covered up by amazingly coincidental bursts of dramatic music or sound effects.

    Something as big as the Alien isn't going to not make a sound when it walks.  Whether it'll be as loud as the game... meh.  The Queen is loud in Aliens.  The Fiorina and Auriga Aliens, not so much.  But they're not silent either.
  14. gabgrave
    I think there may be a difference in the weight of an Alien that's 7 feet tall and one that's 10 feet tall. Also it's been living the life on a station with walk-in-buffet, it probably put on more than a few pounds.

    Personally, the footsteps sounds like the arrogance of a dominant species, one that knows whose the boss. Also sounds like what a Queen or Praetorian would sound like on the prowl.
  15. XenoZ
    Not entirely sure if I like the loud thudding of the alien's feet. Especially in the vent. I've always imagined their movement to be soundless which could cause more tension. Maybe we'll be able to edit/delete out the stomping sound files?  :)

    My biggest gripe so far with the alien is he kills too fast and just charges into a room full of people. It would be much more terrifying if it could sneak up behind you and take its time killing. In the first movie it seemed like it was savoring the moment.
  17. Chronicle
    The way the Alien comes at you is quite terrifying. It makes me jump and freak out everytime. I can't wait and the atmosphere in the game was captured so well. Its like they took Alien and made it bigger. I don't think they will quite capture the true terror and atmosphere of the film itself but I surely believe this will be the best Alien game yet.
