Alien fans are clamouring for a direct sequel to the amazing first game and hope for an Alien: Isolation 2. Here's what we would like to see.
Couldn’t agree more. Great game. Great atmosphere. Total nail biter.. would day a sequel day 1.
It deserves an official VR patch….
Agree. But if they do they should go all in with the emergent gameplay. Do not force the Alien on us, but on the world. And allow us to make mistakes or stumble upon random scenes instead of forcing the AI in certain places where it just breaks the game and show the developers hand. I mean, how many time is the goddamn thing going to circle around the same hallways? Seriously. Also, weapons on androids, they DO need to work, especially those headshots. Of course the penalty of using loud sounds being that the Xenomorph(s?) goes all "Surprise Bitch!" on you. Great game, hampered by antiquated design ideas that could be the next best horror IP if done right.
Probably the best survival horror game I've ever played. The atmosphere is perfect.
It does indeed. Fantastic game.
Instead we're getting a GaaS title.
The game was scarier than the movie in my opinion
Nope. Hide and seek survival horror is out of date... You really want to hide in lockers again?
Nah not every game needs a sequel. If they want to make another like it dont try to carry on the story and characters. Set it elsewhere with new characters and story.
I loved this game!!!! What I loved too was the Alien wasn't stupid. My only problem was after awhile the game started to drag toward the last three chapters
One of those rare instances where I would be more than willing to pay for a "next gen" upgrade patch.
The game unfortunately didn't sell well at launch so a sequel was never greenlit and Creative Assembly moved onto other projects. Shame being a personal fave. There was a direct cut down sequel story that came out as a Five Night at Freddies game called Alien: Blackout for mobile and tablet that follow Amanda after being found.
People should have bought it at launch then, it underperformed and that pretty much killed any chance at a sequel. Then again, I don't blame them given how flippy floppy the quality of the Alien franchise has been over the years (both gaming and movie wise)
Which is sad, being it was the first real showing that the developer could make an amazing game outside of the RTS genre. Now they have them making a GaaS shooter.
There’s one sure way Sony could get me to buy a PSVR2 at launch, & that would be to have Alien Isolation 1 & 2 on PSVR2 Fingers crossed 🤞
at least upgrade it for ps5 ffs
I still can’t believe almost 3 million sales for what is essentially a niche genre wasn’t enough for sega. Greedy greedy people. One of my favourite games ever released. I am biased though as ALIEN is my favourite movie. That being said, the sequel could use more mechanics than just hiding and scaring the alien. Being able to set up noise traps so you can hear the alien when it passes by, more environmental interaction. Perhaps a dynamic vision system where if you’re in a room with nowhere to hide you could place something up against the wall to get behind creating a spot to hide. Have it be less linear with vast open parts of the ship or station or planet. Maybe introduce a character buddy system where for some parts you have companions you order around telling them to go to different rooms and if they die it affects the story. Less working Joes. Hated those things. Not because they were hard but they felt like padding. Which they were. They were there to break up the alien bits but there’s more interesting ways of doing that then generic action. Character dialogue and getting to know people and doing tasks with them or solving puzzles would have been more interesting imo.
