OnlySP: A new developer diary for Alien: Isolation was released today, revealing a few interesting bits of info about the game and player experiences.
30 minute encounters wow. I might as well play this on the toilet. If they can make the game as terrifying as Dead Space then the sale of Andrex toilet paper is gonna go through the roof. Really interested in this. I hope the unscripted A.I works well but obviously it will still follow a script to a certain extent.
I am really looking forward to this game. Partially because I am a big Alien fan (and Dead Space fan), but also because the gameplay and A.I. seem genuinely fresh. I hope it can live up to its potential.
This game had better not disappoint. 30min encounters.. holy balls!!, that'll be intense.
I can see myself yelling GO AWAY a lot lol. OOOOU look a beaker with a face hugger! Hiss in background. GADDAMIT
I don't think my fragile heart can take it...
Seriously!!!? 30 minutes of just "get. the f**k. outta this room i am- SHIT! run run run run run (closes blast door behind whips out motion tracker)...........shes in the walls please be unscripted and beautiful at it please please
I hope this game really delivers what it says or I am afraid the Alien video game franchies will at worst die completly. Or att best put in suspended animation for the next 57years give or take 30 years.
SOLD. Imagine playing this in multiplayer, trying to coordinate an escape from an area with your friends without anyone getting spotted.
I hope that's more than just 30 mins of hiding behind crates waiting for the alien to move slightly then legging it and shutting doors.. As appealing as that is we're going to need a bit of diversity. It would be neat if this Ripley has an inconvenient pet too. Stupid cat!
Well supposedly the AI is good and the alien will hunt you. it will search the enviroment and pick up your trail of scent, probalby get alerted by sounds and investigate movement so hiding in a locker will only last for a little while. A cat at some point could be cool, or CAT DLC. (lol) Asymetric co-op, player two controls the cat and can lure the alien away from the human and can go trough vents or something but depends on the human for progression as for instance a cat cannot hack door controls, consoles or use tools. actually sounds like a tense and fun mode to me albeit somewhat silly.
I thought this was a shooter, not a turn based RPG.
...It's not either of those lol. It's a First Person survival horror.
Sorry. I have a bad habit of calling first person games shooters.
I remember in Outlast there were few times when i hiding not knowing where the big guy was and waiting for him to leave from looking for me and those were like only 5-10 min, but 30min encounters will be even more intense and crazy battling wits with the Alien and will make for awesome gameplay.....talk about your heart pounding and your sweating bullets from getting caught...lol
Have really high hopes for this game as I am a massive Alien fan - saw the original film when it first came out...yes I am that old. If they can make it where you can barricade doors and hide in ventilation shafts trying to get away from this thing....awesome.
