I promised myself I’d never get excited about another Alien game after the gut-wrenching disappointment that is Colonial Marines. But I must admit Alien: Isolation is really starting to pique my interest. In the video below, designers at The Creative Assembly discuss how they went about building the ultimate beast and what makes it so terrifying.

Alien: Isolation is a first-person survival horror capturing the fear and tension evoked by Ridley Scott’s 1979 classic film. Players find themselves in an atmosphere of constant dread and mortal danger as an unpredictable, ruthless Xenomorph is stalking and killing deep in the shadows. Underpowered and underprepared, you must scavenge resources, improvise solutions and use your wits, not just to succeed in your mission, but to simply stay alive. Alien: Isolation will be available in late 2014 for the PlayStation®4 computer entertainment system, PlayStation®3 computer entertainment system, Xbox One, the all-in-one games and entertainment system from Microsoft, the Xbox 360 games and entertainment system from Microsoft and Windows PC.
