A new Aliens game – Aliens: Dark Descent – is heading our way and, judging by the reveal trailer, it looks just as claustrophobic and creepy as you’d hope.
It’s a single-player, real-time squad-based action experience that brings an original new story into the Aliens universe. Players will lead a squad of marines in combat “against the deadliest creature mankind has ever faced.”
Here’s the official word: “Explore the horrors and wonders of the Alien universe like never before, immersing yourself in a brand new Alien storyline that introduces a new threat and a cast of new marines to the iconic horror franchise. Uncover planet Lethe’s sinister secret, battle against an onslaught of iconic Xenomorph creatures and put an end to this new menace. Recruit, gear up and customise your squad of Marines with an extensive arsenal of weapons, armour and special abilities while exploring, as enemies will adapt their tactics to your actions to hunt you down. When ready, embark on high stakes missions in treacherous territory, all the while gathering resources to fix up the stranded Otago spacecraft and researching tech upgrades for your crew.”
Aliens: Dark Descent will release on PS5, Xbox Series X|S, PS4, Xbox One and PC, however no release date has been announced as yet.
