Aliens: Resistance is the sequel to Alien: Isolation!

Aliens: Resistance is the sequel to Alien: Isolation!

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!

It is nice to see Isolation get the recognition it deserves! The last moments of the game leave it pretty open but I always thought it would focus on Weyland Yutani. The illustration suggests that and possibly takes her to LV-426 where she is involved with Hadley's Hope? It seems like a bridge to Aliens.

More Aliens in any format is most excellent and welcome news! 

Will be interesting to see where they go with this. Hopefully it draws enough interest to show there is still life left in the beast

I think on one hand it could be interesting, but on the other i feel its a concern to go back to the ALIENS formula or run away and shoot stuff!

For a Comic however i understand that to Portray Multiple Xenomorphs and Action is easier than trying to deliver the Tense Horror of being stalked by a Lone Xenomorph like Alien Isolation had done.

I do think the more ALIENS Action element is what we could end up with any Game sequel anyway, and indeed i do feel this would also be the route any NEW Alien movie would take, be it a continuation to the Prequels or not.

That seems to be what eventually happens with survival horror since they run out of new ways to scare.
