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.

Hmm...I'm definitely cautiously optimistic about this. A survival horror Alien game, hopefully along the same vein as SCP Containment Breach and Dead Space (The first one and the second one to a lesser extent.)

I am assuming that the release date is for the article.

Story sounds mediocre. But it should be entertaining.

It sounds like the Alien will be the UNKILLABLE enemy who stalks you throughout the game kinda like Pyramid Head from Silent Hill and Nemesis from Resident Evil 3.  It also sounds like many of the normal enemies will be panicked idiots who attack you because of their uncontrollable fears regarding the Alien.

Odd that a game called "Isolation" has multiplayer.

The Alien itself does look very sweet.

Maybe the multiplayer will play out as a 1v3. One Alien has to find and kill all the other players before a certain time runs. And when the time runs out and a player is alive, they win through an escape pod cutscene or so.

Just wait, it'll have a sail tail :P

But in all seriousness if the Alien looks close to that in game I'll go nuts.

Gameplay sounds like it might be interesting. Really surprised (and somewhat worried) about the coop and multiplayer. Would rather they just focus on getting a singleplayer game down.

Holy shit, there's only one alien in this game? That's brilliant! No more cannon fodder Aliens, no more Predators, just you and the original beast. This could be good after all.

This sounds interesting, maybe we'll finally get an alien game where you get to be around as everything is falling apart.

I wonder how this co-op and multiplayer will turn out though, 4 players is way to small for anything like a deathmatch.
