About time. FoxNext Games Acquires Game Developer Cold Iron Studios and announced a new shooter for the Aliens franchise.
The studio says it has talent but hasn't really released anything. I'm excited by the announcement but worried at the same time so here's hoping they don't make something worse than gearboxes game
I am glad it's a PC and console game vs a mobile. The franchise deserves a quality shooter and a great follow up to Alien Isolation as.well.
If possible, I would love this in PSVR
Ever see people play Alien Isolation in V.R?
I'd be annoyed if it turns out to be shit and we could have gotten an Alien Isolation sequel by Creative Assembly
Nothing can be as bad as Alien-Colonial Marines can it???
You say that while we live in a time where MT's, Loot boxes and other shitty practices have come forward. Alien CM was shit because it was a badly made game...but a future Alien game now faces the danger of being shit because it's an online, grind fest focused, MT riddled game with loot boxes
Yep, we need more Alien survival games, not a shooter.
This will happen unfortunately. Need a proper isolation sequel, or it just goes down as the greatest alien game ever and top 5 survival horror.
Well I don't know what position individual members had but "The development team includes industry veterans who've worked on various high-profile titles, including BioShock Infinite, Metroid Prime 3, Neverwinter, and City of Heroes" - per IGN. And read on another site that someone among them also worked on Star Trek Online, for what it's worth.
"Action packed persistent world" So, an Alien shooter MMO. Pass.
Isolation was one of the best games I've played in recent years. So much fun. I fully welcome another game along the same lines. I wish this new project to continue that greatness. I fear however, that this is a completely new direction.
Isolation is in my top 10 games of this entire Generation personally. Absolutely Fantastic Game. The fusion reactor part was so atmosperic and intense
I clicked so fast in hopes of seeing another game by Creative Assembly. Darn. They put together one of the most faithful film-to-game adaptations in recent memory and Isolation is in my top 5 horror games. Just fantastic.
Same old s*** then, why can't anyone do justice to the Alien universe. The best Alien games are from the arcade scene Aliens from Konami, and Alien vs Predator from Capcom. Brilliant fun games that capture the spirit of the franchise, what it needs is a talented development team to design an amazing SINGLE player experience. For me personally an Alien game would be third person, lots of weapons incredible set pieces. Throw in some inspiration from Gears of War, Dead space, Uncharted. There you have a recipe for something truly special to do justice to the Alien franchise.
Maybe you should watch alien again....... Alien isolation was perfect.
Did you play Isolation?
No give it back to Creative Assembly
A key for me is to keep the history and universe as part of the game. ACM had wave after wave of Aliens but their numbers greatly overshone the population of the colony as well as what was lost in aliens and the explosion. Give us a reason for hundreds of creatures.
oh nice! :)
Colonial Marines 2 ftl lol...
Guess this also underscores Sega possibly no longer being licensed for Alien games.
I still want them to revisit the shelves/cancelled Obsidian Aliens game ..
Meh, the only Aliens game that was good was Isolation, this just sounds like Colonial Marines.
Better in the hands of the unknown, than the greedy mitts of the bigger AAA companies. I still hope Creative Assembly get another run at an Alien game though.
Hope its good
Give me A New Alien Vs. Predator and I will solve world hunger......balls in your court
I'm dying for another Isolation game though.
Why do Alien games always get announced like this? No trailer just some mysterious statement about a game gets released.
I think It is due to ACM showing one thing and delivering a game that did not even feature the gameplay and mechanics shown at E3.
Just release Alien Isolation 2, that game was fantastic.
A new alien game sounds awesome. After recently watching alien covenant, that would be cool fighting off alien, aliens and also having to deal with David...
PLease, just dont suck.
I wish Sega/Fox would revive the Obsidian's Aliens: Crucible. It was looking really interesting, with perma-death for companions, with morale system, with hub, where you can escort people you saved. And Creative Assembly would probably do another great Alien game as well. Personally, i'm kind of "fed up" with Alien shooters and this studio is unknown.
If it's like Isolation then I look forward to it.
All I want is an Alien Isolation sequel made by the same developers.
hope its not like evolve, 4v1 or 8v1 game, i can see them doing this for some reason.
If that was part of a game rather than the core concept it could be ok. I would be ok with an online mode where you had to hunt and capture a Queen.
didnt think about it that way that could be cool. i kinda want a left 4 dead aliens game.
after the past few catastrophic alien releases i am not sure if this is a good idea.
Bummer, isolation 2 with vr capability would have been awesome
Aliens (Alien number 2 movie) has the perfect setting for a game, but sadly it hasn't receive any good representation in a game form.
I seriously hope it's as convoluted and horrible as the Prometheus movies.
Looking forward to this (with guarded expectations). I quite liked Rebellion’s 2010 game. Was a masterpiece compared to Colonial Marines.
I think a shooter with a good story and co-op would be ideal. I would like to see multiple online modes and let players play as both Alien and Human.
