Alien: Infiltrator, New Prequel Novel to Cold Iron Studios’ Alien Shooter by Weston Ochse!

We may have lost Dark Horse Comics’ prequel series to Cold Iron Studios upcoming “persistent online shooter,” but it looks like Titan still has our backs! Those of you who picked up Alien: Prototype when it was released last week may have noticed a previously unannounced title on the Other Titles page – Alien: Infiltrator! Thanks to an Amazon listing, we now know that the new book is actually a prequel to Cold Iron Studios’ game!

“The official prequel to the huge new Alien video game from Cold Iron Studios, as a Weyland-Yutani scientist arrives at Pala Station and finds the researchers there courting disaster… of the Xenomorph kind.

Dr. Timothy Hoenikker arrives on Pala Station, a Weyland-Yutani facility. Lured there by the promise of alien artifacts, instead he finds a warped bureaucracy and staff of misfits testing the effects of Xenomorph bio-materials on living creatures. Unbeknownst to the personnel, however, there is an infiltrator among them whose actions could spell disaster. Also on staff is Victor Rawlings, a former marine who gathers together other veterans to prepare for the worst. As the personnel receive a delivery of alien eggs, the experiments spin out of control, and only the former Colonial Marines can stand between the humans and certain death.”

Unlike the cancelled Rising Threat, Infiltrator doesn’t seem to be focusing on existing characters but a new cast! Alien: Infiltrator is written by Weston Ochse. Ochse has previously written for both the Alien and Predator franchise, with Zero to Hero in Aliens: Bug Hunt and May Blood Pave My Way Home in Predator: If It Bleeds.

Following Disney’s purchase of 20th Century Fox and the rumors that Disney was looking to sell FoxNext, the company responsible for publishing Cold Iron Studios’ online Alien shooter, we haven’t actually heard anything about the upcoming game before this announcement.

Alien: Infiltrator is currently available to pre-order on Amazon US, with a release date of July 28th. Thanks to felix for the heads up!

    Wow, just wow.
    Thank you all so much, I've got to write all these down now.
    Thanks you all for the info, I might just print this whole string of comments out.
    Best community I've been in for avp.
    THANKS A MILLION for the info and list of comics and books.

    The only things I haven't liked have been Bug Hunt as a whole (despite having a handful of really good entries) and Isolation. The first Titan trilogy ended up being good, in spite of some mandated issues that detracted. Rage Wars was super fun. Completely different feel to the novels. Found that a huge breath of fresh air. The Cold Forge cannot be praised enough and I do feel pretty bad for every author who follows him as it's a very high bar! Echo I ended up very much enjoying. We're talking generally 7 out of 10s for me. 

    On the Predator side, If It Bleeds I can't recommend enough. And Hunters and Hunted was also fantastic, despite some little issues and being tied to The Predator. It's a far better experience than the films.

    The Rage War trilogy is really fun, loved it, Cold Forge is fantastic, Alien Echo is surprisingly great IMO, Alien Out of the Shadows and Sea of Sorrows are also good, if you find Bug Hunt on a discount, half of its stories are fun and interesting and If It Bleeds is really good as far as the Predator side of things.

    I recommend:
    Alien - The Cold Forge
    Aliens - Dead Orbit
    Aliens - Dust to Dust
    Alien - Echo

    (& The Predator - Hunters and Hunted is really good but unfortunately it's attached to a trash film.)

    I don't know anything about:
    Alien - Prototype
    Alien - Phalanx
    Alien - Infiltrator

    The rest ranges from unfulfilling and mediocre to absolute garbage not worth your time. Particularly amongst the last one is Fire and Stone, Life and Death, The Rage War, OotS, RoP and SoS.

    Isolation isn't worth much if you've experienced the original, The Predator is just as quality as the film, Covenant Origins is totally white bread and Defiance unfortunately has a meh ending, & a string of meh sequels.

    And the unproduced screenplay is messy and doesn't fulfil it's full potential, and isn't nearly as good as the film we got.

    "Stopped A few years ago"
    So around five years or so I havent been collecting the newer books.
    Thanks to this site, I've seen there have been alot and am interested in starting again.
    My neca collection is rather..... large lmfao, I thinks it's time I started adding some of these to my book collection.

     not implying I dont have a book shelf fool of alien/predator books but nonetheless I'm sure I've missed quite a few good stories.
  7. TYRANTKINGALIEN
    I need to get back to collecting the new graphic novels and comics.
    Stopped a few years ago and they are really starting to pile up on me with all the new releases.
    Do you guys have a list of all the new comics/graphic novels.
  8. Corporal Hicks
    To be honest, I'd love to see them experimenting with the Aliens for more than just weaponry. It's one of the reasons I really dug Cold Forge. If that synopsis hints at more than just facehugging, I'm curious.
  9. felix
    Synopsis is out.
