As some of you already know, Dark Horse plans to reboot the Alien, Predator and Alien Vs. Predator comic series and create a single universe that all four comic franchises, including the yet to be initiated Prometheus comic series, will share.

Alien: isolation is the cover story of the January issue of the Italian magazine, Game Republic. The 10-page article features new images and details on the game by Sega & Creative Assembly. You can find the scans here. Some bullets from the interview:
Sega has officially announced Alien: Isolation for Xbox 360, Xbox One, PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4 and PC today. Set for release in late 2014, Alien: Isolation is a first-person, single-player, survival horror game set fifteen years after the events in Ridley Scott’s Alien. As Ellen Ripley’s daughter, Amanda, you will go on a mission to find out what happened to her mother.
Below you can find the announcement trailer and the first developer diary as well as a batch of new screenshots and artwork from the game.
Also make sure to check the forums for more coverage and details on the game.
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.
With Alien: Out of the Shadows due out for release at the end of January, details of the second novel in the trilogy have just surfaced:
“The Alien film franchise has been embraced by sci-fi fans around the world. The series stars Lieutenant Ellen Ripley and her battles with the deadly Xenomorph commonly referred to as the Alien. Continuing the groundbreaking story from ALIEN: OUT OF THE SHADOWS by Tim Lebbon, this novel will reveal Ripley’s legacy, as her descendants continue to be harried by the Weyland-Yutani Corporation in their unceasing effort to weaponize the aliens.”
Written by James A. Moore, Sea of Sorrows is due out in July 2014 and looks like to be continuing the theme of using the Ripley family in 2014. You can currently pre-order this over at Amazon. Thanks to Ultramorph for the hint.
I’d like to take the opportunity to wish all our visitors and members a merry christmas and happy new year from the staff at AvPGalaxy. We’ve had a bit of a disappointing year with Colonial Marines. Hopefully 2014 will be a much more fruitful year and we’ve got plenty to look forward to!
And we can’t forget continuing coverage of Alien – Isolation. Have a fantastic holiday everyone!!
Seems like a long time coming but the Predator 3D Blu-Ray is officially released this week in the UK and the US. You can buy it from Amazon.co.uk for £15 or you can opt for the Limited Edition which includes a ‘Predator Head’ sculpture for £90.
Late November it was discovered that S.D Perry would be returning to the Alien literary world with the Weyland-Yutani Reports:
“Inside Alien: The Weyland-Yutani Report, you will find detailed information on the life-cycle of the xenomorph, those who had the misfortune to come into contact with it, the habitats in which the creature has been encountered, and a breakdown of the most effective weapons to use against it, from pulse rifles to flamethrowers. The last word on the alien, Alien: The Weyland-Yutani Report contains all the information you’ll need to track down one of these creatures, and maybe even survive the encounter.
This in-universe book will utilize over thirty years’ worth of Alien movie concept art, production design art, film stills, and other visual assets to create a deeply engrossing reading experience that will thrill fans of the franchise. Covering events and characters from Prometheus, Alien, Aliens, Alien III and Alien Resurrection, Alien: The Weyland-Yutani Report will be a uniquely immersive journey into a world that has thrilled audiences for over three decades.“”
This was previewed at the New York Comic Con and it would seem no-one has really taken note of this release. It will evidently weigh in at 160 pages and 20 inserts, coming in hardback format for $50. Insight Editions is set to be publishing it but there’s currently nothing on their website about it. There is no release date as of yet. Thanks to Cvalda for the news.
