A New Kind Of Evil
Games based on the Alien franchise have a mixed history, but there have definitely been highlights over the years. Aliens: Dark Descent hopes to land on the right side of that history when it releases in 2023, published by Focus Entertainment.
Playing a brand new squad of Colonial Marines, you’ll have to manage the group in real time in a game inspired by squad based action games and CRPGs. Iconic enemies such as the xenomorphs will be around but the development team at Tindalos Interactive promise new surprises as well.
“We are honored to partner with 20th Century Studios and Disney to work on a new project from this emblematic franchise, and to team up with our excellent partners at Tindalos Interactive. Their expertise, talent and passion for the license will make Aliens: Dark Descent an iconic new chapter in the Alien series,” said John Bert, Managing Director at Focus Entertainment.
We’ll have more on this exciting project when its available but for now, check out the screens here and the first trailer below. Aliens: Dark Descent is coming to PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, and PC.
