Let’s start off by saying we’re not sure if this is an accident or what, but apparently Sega’s Alien: Isolation will be available for download on the Xbox Live marketplace… well… depending on when you’re reading this story… now?
At least that’s how the official Xbox website reads. According to it the game is set for release on January 7th from Creative Assembly and Sega of Europe, and it will feature:
Discover the true meaning of fear in Alien: Isolation, a survival horror set in an atmosphere of constant dread and mortal danger. Fifteen years after the events of Alien, Ellen Ripley’s daughter, Amanda, enters a desperate battle for survival on a mission to unravel the truth behind her mother’s disappearance. As Amanda, you will navigate through an increasingly volatile world as you find yourself confronted on all sides by a panicked, desperate population and an unpredictable, ruthless Alien. Underpowered and underprepared, you must scavenge resources, improvise solutions, and use your wits, not just to succeed in your mission, but to simply stay alive.
Creative Assembly was noted as being hired for the mysterious Aliens project back in May 2011. 20th Century Fox filed a trademark for a project called Alien: Isolation back in October.
Stay tuned, kids.
