SEGA have officially announced Alien Isolation a new video game based on the ever popular Alien franchise of films. This game in particular is based solely around the original 1979 film that was directed by Ridley Scott.
The blurb from the official website reads :
HOW WILL YOU SURVIVE? Discover the true meaning of fear in Alien: Isolation, a survival horror set in an atmosphere of constant dread and mortal danger. Fifteen years after the events of Alien™, Ellen Ripley’s daughter, Amanda enters a desperate battle for survival, on a mission to unravel the truth behind her mother’s disappearance. As Amanda, you will navigate through an increasingly volatile world as you find yourself confronted on all sides by a panicked, desperate population and an unpredictable, ruthless Alien. Underpowered and underprepared, you must scavenge resources, improvise solutions and use your wits, not just to succeed in your mission, but to simply stay alive.
Here is the official announcement trailer.
A developers diary explains the game as well as showcasing some more game footage.

After the massive disappointment of Aliens: Colonial Marines and being a massive Aliens film fan myself, I’m really looking forward to this one.
Alien: Isolation will be released in late 2014 on Xbox360, XboxOne, PS3 and PS4.
