Get a first look at the Aliens Dark Descent experience awaiting you on Moon Lethe with this unnerving World Premiere Reveal Trailer, as we follow a squad of Colonial Marines during a recon mission.
We are honoured to partner with 20th Century Studio 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
John Bert, Managing Director at Focus Entertainment
The entire team at Tindalos is dedicated to delivering a gaming experience faithful to the spirit of the Alien franchise, and adding its own, never-seen-before elements to this iconic universe. The gameplay we have developed is unique, inspired from our favourite tactical and CRPG games and packaged in nerve-wracking, real-time action. Translating from film to our game the sheer terror caused by the deadliest species known to man was quite a challenge, but I’m confident most of you will end up in strung-out shape – as Hicks himself would say
Romain Clavier, CEO & Creative Director at Tindalos Interactive
We’re excited to continue expanding upon the beloved Alien franchise with a deeper single-player story experience thanks to the bright minds from our friends at Focus and Tindalos
About Aliens Dark Descent
Recruit, gear up, and customize your squad of Marines with an extensive arsenal of weapons, armor, and special abilities while exploring, as enemies will adapt their tactics to your actions to hunt you down. When ready, embark on high-stakes missions in the treacherous territory while gathering resources to fix the stranded Otago spacecraft and researching tech upgrades for your crew.
Players will command a squad as one unit thanks to intuitive controls, allowing their Marines to automatically prioritize and execute complex actions in real-time, based on their respective skill sets and the environment around them.
Navigate levels strategically, making sure to leverage the persistent and reactive environments to your advantage by sealing off checkpoints, unlocking shortcuts, or creating safe zones.
Be cautious and monitor each marine’s vitals – for any who falls in combat, death is permanent.
Anticipate, think fast, and act faster to outwit the lethal creatures from the deeper hive. Will you make it out alive?
Aliens Dark Descent will release on PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, and PC. For more information on the game, visit the publisher’s website.
