Go "Behind the Terror" in this New Alien: Isolation Video and Interview
A couple weeks ago, Creative Assembly released a Developer Diary video for Alien: Isolation about creating the alien. As you're probably aware by now, Alien: Isolation is being called a true survival horror experience, unlike a previous Aliens game I'll leave unnamed. PlayStation Blog sat down with Creative Lead Alistair Hope for a video interview entitled "Behind the Terror". The video discusses the design elements of the game, such as the non-scripted nature, and how it's equally important to be terrified when the alien's location is not known.
In addition to the video, PlayStation Blog conducted a Q&A with Alistair, which you can read at the source below. Alistair touches upon everything from the inspiration for the game, to the support Creative Assembly has received from FOX, to the importance of immersion and an authentic 1970s look and feel. Of course, it all boils down to that singular, unkillable alien – and Alistair describes it rather bluntly: "It is death, and if you don't give it the respect it demands, you will not survive."
Alien: Isolation will be arriving on PC, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, PlayStation 3, and Xbox 360 later this year. An official release date will be announced at EGX Rezzed, which takes place March 28 - 30 in Birmingham, UK. In addition to the release date announcement, Alien: Isolation will be playable at EGX on "60 demo pods" for PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One.
