Looks like it's just one of those top-down four player horde type games. Not really for me, unfortunately.

While it's easy to dismiss those kinds of games, I have before. There are some really good ones these days such as 'The Ascent.' I'll be keeping an eye on this.

Yeah, would be nice to see another single player first person shooter game in this franchise in my lifetime

Still, exciting to see a new game coming. Interesting trailer, seems to have an intriguing story involving a marine who left his squad behind. Could be neat

I don't think I can take much more announcements this week.

Is this being developed by the same guys who did Fireteam? It looks to be published by Focus Entertainment.

Which co-op Aliens horde shooter do I want to play today then? :laugh:

It's probably too early to tell (or it's just a wishful thinking on my part) but trailer makes it seem they're leaning more towards "scary" than "actiony" this time around. Would be great to get some of the Isolation mojo back, when every encounter feels like the last one

I saw the "Focus" logo and the APC on an alien planet in a clearly Alien setting and thought they were doing a CG trailer for the new Fireteam update they'd confirmed is being shown later! :laugh:

I kept thinking "wow, this is looking like it's going to be a really big update! ....wait, isometric top-down?!"

Definitely didn't expect another new Alien game announcement any time soon, so this is a cool surprise! I used to play a lot of isometric PC games back in the day, more strategy than action to be fair, but still, this is something I'll definitely be keeping an eye on.

We are eating good lately! So much Alien and Predator content. Are we in a new golden age?

Another cheap looking mindless shooter....sigh.   

This could've been Fireteam Elite DLC.

QuoteIn Aliens: Dark Descent, command a squad of hardened Colonial Marines to stop a terrifying Xenomorph outbreak on Moon Lethe. Lead your soldiers in real-time combat against iconic Xenomorphs, rogue operatives from the insatiable Weyland-Yutani Corporation, and a host of horrifying creatures new to the Alien franchise.

You are the commander. They are your weapon.

Infiltrate large open levels and annihilate enemies with your squad, dispatching orders strategically and intuitively at the touch of a button. Tread carefully, as death is permanent and your foes will adapt their tactics to your actions while hunting you down. Forge unique paths for survival, uncovering shortcuts, creating safe zones, and setting up motion trackers in a persistent world where your actions impact levels forever.

Customize your squad with a selection of different classes. Level up and specialize your soldiers with unique abilities and an arsenal of weapons, armor, and perks, for high stakes missions in treacherous territory. Develop your base to research new tech and improve your squad even further.

Manage your resources wisely and take calculated risks to outsmart the deadliest creature mankind has ever faced. Can you and your squad stop the outbreak before it's too late?

Face off in a gripping original Alien story against iconic Xenomorph creatures ranging from Facehuggers to Praetorians, Alien Queens and many more, including rogue human commandos and a brand-new threat unique to this Alien storyline

Lead strategically and change squad tactics from mission to mission, carefully managing your soldiers' health, resources, and sanity, to avoid permanent team losses and mental breakdowns

Forge unique paths for survival in a persistent world, uncovering shortcuts, creating safe zones and setting up motion trackers to stay one step ahead of these creatures

Assemble and level up squads composed of 5 starting Marines classes, with dozens of specializations, unique abilities and weapons.
