Alien: Isolation Official Announcement Gameplay Trailer -- "Transmission" [UK]


Hoping to god they don't mess this up like they did Colonial Marines. The fact its not a shooter is definitely a step in the right direction.

Edit: Forgot this. Makes me even more excited for it.

It does sound immense. It's got a lot of work to do if it wants to impress us, unlike the last few alien games.

Yes, expectedly a lot of people are already panning it due to fact CM was the biggest pile of brown there is. Though new developer and it not being a shooter for once, I have very high hopes.

Gameplay looks brilliant, as long as it stays that way (once again, we want no CM again). Very Amnesia which is a plus, though hopefully they will make it a lot less scripted and harder than Amnesia.

It's exactly what the alien fans want. To be stalked by the thing that hunted people on the silver screen all those years. The alien was designed to play on the fears of man.
Right now I'm playing colonial marines because a) it was £3 and b) I'm bored. Considering the little I've spent on it, I'm enjoying it. Had I of bought it on day of release if of been sick. But they had the potential to make a great game and instead ruined it just to make a gun and gun shooter.
It was the exact same with the remake of AvP. Could of made a scary campaign for the marine, but they forget that they arm you to the teeth and give you all the tools to fight it all. How am I going to be scared if I can fight back?
This is where isolation comes in, and there's no pulse rifle in your hand.

Did you ever catch the comparison of the gameplay between the E3 demo and the final release of CM out of interest? That's what was most shocking. Weirdly AvP actually had a scary campaign in parts for the Marines. The first encounter with a Facehugger....those things still terrify me to this day. Nothing like a jumping spider with a tail, human looking skin, and a weird peni-vagina to shove down your throat after it appears out of nowhere to make you crap your pants...errrr  :x

The comparison video  was really shocking. It's definitely not the same game as the retail version that's for sure.
On the plus side, I read today that Isolation has no plans for a coop or online multiplayer modes. This makes it all the more exciting.

Unless we have another space suit scene like the first film...

True enough. He's probably on Mr. Skin looking at it right now.
