Surprise FP-Horror from The Creative Assembly. The atmosphere. THE ATMOSPHERE!

Spoiler: It's going to be terrible

I really hope I'm wrong.....

Edited by jayjonesjunior

Been waiting my whole life for this.

Is it an Aliens game? Is it on the 3DO? No? Then, it's going to be terrible.

I AM NOT GETTING MY HOPES UP. I REFUSE. DON'T BELIEVE THEIR LIES PATRICK.

I want to believe...

Wait, this is Ripleys daughter. But we already know she died of old age, so she's gonna survive this game.

Preeeeetty sure that was the Prometheus trailer music.

More than likely terrible, sadly.

Alien, not Aliens!

@flaboere: Wasn't she told that by Weyland-Yutani Rep? They are not exactly the most trustworthy of fictional companies.

Based off of what?

Cause a work of fiction has to abide by the laws of past fiction?

Also this makes no sense, in 90% of video games you can make it to the end but you can also die multiple times throughout... why is this a potential sticking point for anyone?

I think a lot of people barely care about Ripley herself at this point, let alone a daughter of hers... or the entire alien franchise for that matter. I'll take a good video game where I can get it, if this turns out to be it. :)

How can they expect me to "relate" to the character, when I got man-parts and she got lady-parts?! Dang nabbit!

Same problem with Black Flag but that game was fun.

Wait, are we SURE this is an Alien game? I mean this looks like a moody, tense, dark sci-fi tale preying on things like fear of the unknown and being alone. I mean alien games are all about yelling GET SOME! GEEEET SOOOOOOOOOME!!!!! whilst mowing down hordes of easily killed fodder, right?

Posted by DragonNinja789

Maybe this will fix the horror that was Colonial Marines? (my poor soul)

At least I hope so...

Creative Assembly's first fp game. Seems VERY inspired by Amnesia. I think the Ripley's daughter angle is too restrictive, they would be better served by using something less directly related to the Alien universe.

Its not an Aliens game, its an Alien game. Very important difference.

Posted by hermes

It will be terrible.

Maybe I am wrong. I would love to be wrong about it, as well as any other game I think is going to be terrible... but I guess that helps me cope with expectations.

Besides, I don't know what credentials the Total War guys have with horror games.

Edited by TheManWithNoPlan

I'm going to set myself with no expectations for this game to be good, so that means it will, right?

Posted by Dberg

You are out of your mind if you think this has any chance to be good.

Edited by Flacracker

Creative Assembly! The people who brought you the broken shit that was Rome 2 Total War

Sega! The people who brought you the broken shit that was Rome 2 Total War, the last Aliens game, and Company of Heroes 2.

Posted by S3V3N

only one alien in the trailer and it's at the very end. This looks more promising than Garbagebox's game already.

We're going to need a bigger boat.

OR WAS THAT LIES FROM THE COMPANY?! HMMM?! Yeah probably not.

Posted by ToTheNines

everything looks great, except the actual movement of the alien at the end. prancing up to you like some dude. but yeah, not enough to judge it on yet. looks promising though.

Posted by Phished0ne

Anyone getting their hopes up for an action game made by The Creative Assembly is a better person than i am. Looks like the atmosphere is good, but its a lot easier for a movie to skate by on tension and atmosphere than a game, so we'll see how it comes out.

I hope this is good but the rare time Creative Assembly has tried to do something non-RTS, it hasn't worked out so well.

Edited by yeliwofthecorn

I firmly trust Creative Assembly to bring an amazing survival horror game out. I mean, after their track record with... uh... well, I mean, I think they made a Viking game once that wasn't an RTS... but, I mean look at the track record for Alien games! They've all been... oh... right...

Well... it looks kinda pretty, I guess.

Posted by HerbieBug

Yep, this trailer pretty much represents the kind of Alien game I have always wanted but never got.

So please be good. For the love of all that is good and creepy. ♥

Posted by Humanity

Guys let's be realistic here, it's going to be terrible.

The expanded the studio so much to make this game that that line of thinking is hardly relevant.

Holy shit, PLEASE BE GOOD!

Let us hope they don't rush this through and actually release a game in a stable format. Looks incredible, though.

Edited by Rebel_Scum

In game footage you say...heard that one before somewhere... :p

Hope this turns out good. Although I have to say I can't believe some of the comments here about playing as a female character. Its a lot better than playing as some steroetypical dumb macho marine like with the Gears of War franchise.

Edited by Slayeric

@dberg: I would have told you that same thing years ago about Batman games. Then Arkham Asylum happened. It has nothing to do with a franchise, but the creative team working on it.

Posted by AlexanderSheen

Fuck you guys, it's going to be awesome.
