Aliens: Dark Descent is a Single-Player Real Time Action Game

Aliens: Dark Descent

Revealed tonight during Summer Game Fest, a brand new Alien game is coming soon.

Despite the cinematic trailer looking like some sort of third-person action game, Aliens: Dark Descent is actually a top-down squad-based action game. But for fans of real time combat, this could be one to watch. Especially if you’re invested in the Alien universe.

Aliens: Dark Descent features an all-new story set in the Alien universe. Taking control of a squad of Marines, you find yourself in the midst of a battle against the “deadliest creature mankind has ever faced”. Could that be the Xenomorph? Maybe – or maybe it’s something even worse. After all, it promises to introduce an all-new threat.

The gameplay of Aliens: Dark Descent will see you customising your squad with a variety of weapons, armour and abilities. You’ll need to think tactically and strategically to outsmart and defeat your enemies, and each mission you undertake will reward you with resources and upgrades, allowing you to improve your crew along the way.

We don’t yet have a release date forĀ Aliens: Dark Descent, but it’ll be coming to PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X/S and PC. Give the trailer a watch below.
