Alien: Isolation to star Ellen Ripley's daughter - Report
Source says upcoming next-gen game from Creative Assembly to feature the daughter of noted space marine; Sega reportedly took reception of Colonial Marines "very seriously."
Ellen Ripley was played by Sigourney Weaver in Ridley Scott's 1979 film Alien.
In Alien: Isolation, gamers will play as Amanda Ripley on a single space station, taking on aliens, clones, and soldiers, according to the tipster. Vents, lockers, and melee weapons are a major part of the game, which is inspired by Alien, the source said.
According to Kotaku's source, Alien: Isolation is in fact Creative Assembly's previously announced Aliens game and will be released on current- and next-generation consoles, as was rumored.
The game--developed by Gearbox Software and the now-bankrupt TimeGate Studios--was released on Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, and PC in February, shipping 1.31 million copies to date. The Wii U version was canceled.
The source said Sega isn't keen to release another poorly received Aliens games and even delayed Isolation once already. Sega reportedly planned to announce the game during the 2013 Electronic Entertainment Expo in June.
The rumored game's status is currently unknown.
