Developer Tindalos Interactive and publisher Focus Entertainment have teamed up for Aliens: Dark Descent, a single-player, squad-based action game set within the Alien universe.
In Aliens: Dark Descent, you’ll drop into an original Alien story and lead a squad of marines in real-time combat against the deadliest creature mankind has ever faced. Uncover planet Lethe’s sinister secret, battle against an onslaught of iconic Xenomorph creatures by equipping your squad with an extensive arsenal of weapons, armour, and special abilities, and try to put an end to this new menace that adapts its tactics to your action to hunt you down.
“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,” says John Bert, Managing Director at Focus Entertainment. “Their expertise, talent and passion for the license will make Aliens: Dark Descent an iconic new chapter in the Alien series.”
“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,” adds Romain Clavier, CEO & Creative Director at Tindalos Interactive. “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.”
Aliens: Dark Descent will be available for the PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4, Xbox Series, Xbox One, and the PC via Steam in 2023. Get your first look at the game by watching the reveal trailer below!
