Alien fans and gamers alike who were hoping for a sequel to Creative Assembly's Alien: Isolation will need to wait no longer! However, instead of a follow-up game set in the Alien universe, Dark Horse Comics have announced that Amanda Ripley's story will continue on in comic-book format, with a fresh new series by Brian Woods (Aliens: Defiance) titled Aliens: Resistance!
Aliens: Resistance follows the events of the popular video game Aliens: Isolation which starred Ellen Ripley's daughter Amanda Ripley, fifteen years after the events of the original film. She fought for survival against the monstrous xenomorph aboard a remote space station while attempting to uncover the hidden secrets of her mother's disappearance from the insidious Weyland-Yutani Corporation.
Aliens: Resistance #1 will go on sale January 23rd, 2019!
