Alien: Isolation, the AAA survival game published by Feral Interactive and originally developed by Creative Assembly, is coming to terrorize users of the Nintendo Switch system on December 5, 2019.
In Alien: Isolation, gamers take on the role of Ellen Ripley’s daughter Amanda, playing through an original story set fifteen years after the events of Alien, wherein she seeks to discover the reason her mother seemed to vanish from existence. Marooned aboard the remote space station Sevastopol with a handful of other desperate survivors, Amanda must stay out of sight and keep her wits about her, working to survive as she is stalked by an ever-present, unstoppable Alien.
Winner of multiple awards including the BAFTA Games Award for Audio Achievement, Alien: Isolation has been critically acclaimed for its tense, atmospheric gameplay, and fidelity to the production values of director Ridley Scott’s 1979 film, Alien. Originally released in 2014 for PC, Xbox, and PlayStation platforms, the game received mostly positive reviews, selling over two million copies by May 2015. A single player action-adventure game with emphasis on stealth and survival horror features, Alien: Isolation garnered much praise for its retro-futuristic art direction, sound design, and the Alien antagonist’s artificial intelligence. However, the game also drew criticism based on its characters and long runtime.
The Switch version of Alien: Isolation will feature support for gyroscopic aiming and HD rumble to immerse players in its terrifying world wherever they play—and it will also include all of the nine DLC content packs released over the past five years.
