Tindalos Interactive’s Aliens: Dark Descent, the latest entry in the Aliens gaming catalogue, has been out nearly a month now and has enjoyed a very positive response from critics and the fandom alike.

Very nice!

Apparently, those Nostromo space suits were initially going to be used by the player. That would just be...*chefs kiss*

Perhaps something that will resurface in an eventual DLC?

I love the green highlights like AVP Extinction on the Alien here. It is a pretty great time to like Alien and Predator stuff.

Still Collating...

Sooooooo some interesting info here! From looking at all of the art and descriptions available.

Spoiler
Kritskiy, calls the Space Jockeys - Ancients. But one of the other members who done the concept art show a more literal Space Jockey Head/Helmet and literally calls the pictures Space Jockey environments. So it's obvious that it all started like that, but Fox probably meddled in and said they had to be referred to as something else. All other instances refer to the place as Xeno city and Kritskiy is the only one to call the creatures Ancients.

Oh and cool that the whole biomechanical city is alive and that the Ancients grow out of the city protrusions. Really weird but interesting stuff.

Okay.
I didn't play the game, but now i am curious.
What the hell is the Ancient Citizen?

Is there new Space Jockey lore in this game?

bobby brown

Not written lore, but well, yeah.

The Ancients are what one of the artists refers to the space jockeys as.

Makes sense as the term "space jockeys" doesn't really hold up.

I'm probably not the first one to notice but anyway:
