Alien: Isolation is an upcoming first-person survival horror game being developed by Creative Assembly and published by SEGA. The game is set to be a "midquel" taking place between the films Alien and Aliens in the Alien Franchise.
Alien: Isolation takes place during the year 2137, 15 years after Alien and 42 years before Aliens. The protagonist is Amanda, the daughter of Ellen Ripley. After new leads on the disappearance of her mother are discovered, Amanda attempts ti locate her, unaware she is being hunted by a Xenomorph.
Unlike the most recent Alien game which was also first-person, this one which is completely unrelated will not feature combat. Instead, Amanda is armed with only a torch and a motion tracker. Rather than fight the lone Xenomorph that hunts Amanda throughout the game, players must think strategically and hide from it. The Xenomorph has a complex AI and does not hunt based on pre-set paths. Instead it relies on the senses of sight, hearing, and smell. By being caught within the Xenomorph's frame of vision or creating two much noise, Amanda can be located. Amanda also gives off a smell, leaving a path behind for the Xenomorph to follow. If the palyer remains hidden in the same spot for too long, the Xenomoprh will be able to locate Amanda entirely based on smell. If caught by the Xenomorph, there is no way to damage or kill it. It will kill Amanda, requiring the player tot replay a certain section and attempt to avoid it the next time around.
