Geoff Keighley’s massive Summer Game Fest treated us to another video game return to the Alien franchise, this time with squad-based action shooter, Aliens: Dark Descent.
Coming from Battlefleet Gothic developer, Tindalos Interactive, Aliens: Dark Descent is a top-down co-op/single-player shooter. Published by Focus Entertainment, you must band together commanding soldiers taking on the monstrous trademark aliens.
You are the commander as you’ll battle “Xenomorphs, rogue operatives from the insatiable Weyland-Yutani Corporation, and a host of new horrifying creatures new to the Alien franchise”. Other known aliens will include Praetorians, Alien Queens, Facehuggers, and many more.
Also mentioned on Aliens: Dark Descent’s Steam page, you’ll “Infiltrate large open levels and annihilate enemies with your squad, dispatching orders strategically and intuitively at the touch of a button”.
Furthermore, the new game will let you customise your squad with a variety of classes – allowing you to level up your soldiers and equip them with specialised loadouts for the mission at hand.
So it’s not quite a new Alien: Isolation, but it’s still something worth keeping an eye on.
Aliens: Dark Descent will be coming later this year onto PS5, Xbox Series X/S, PS4, Xbox One. Are you interested in picking this up? Let us know on our social channels.
