Tindalos Interactive and Focus Entertainment unveiled their latest upcoming horror game Alien: Dark Descent at the Summer Game Fest yesterday.
The game is set to release sometime in 2023 and will launch on PS5, PS4, Xbox One, Xbox Series X/S, and PC via Steam.
Unlike the publisher’s previous title, Aliens: Fireteam Elite, we will not be playing this one from the first-person perspective.
Instead, the game will be isometric and have players control a full squad of marines — making this a spiritual successor to Valve’s criminally underplayed Alien Swarm.
Aliens: Dark Descent is a squad-based, single-player horror action game that will task players with leading a squad of soldiers to stop a new and terrifying kind of Xenomorph outbreak on Moon Lethe.
The game will feature an RPG character progression, and there are five distinct marine classes with “dozens of specialisations, unique abilities, and weapons”.
While the horrors of Aliens: Dark Descent will feature the franchise’s iconic Xenomorphs, players will also have to face a host of horrifying creatures such as the Facehuggers, Praetorians, Alien Queens, and rogue human commandos.
Players are warned to tread carefully as death is permanent, and your foes will adapt their tactics to your actions while hunting you down.
