A new Alien game has been officially announced for 2023 and a cinematic trailer reveal just dropped as well! Titled Aliens: Dark Descent, this single-player squad based shooter will pit players once again against hordes of Xenomorphs. Players will also again assume the role of USCM Colonial Marines.

The game is being developed by Focus Entertainment and Tindalos Entertainment. The game is described as being a real-time strategy game where players control a squad of Marines. Check out the trailer and official synopsis below:

In Aliens: Dark Descent, command a squad of hardened Colonial Marines to stop a terrifying Xenomorph outbreak on Moon Lethe. Lead your soldiers in real-time combat against iconic Xenomorphs, rogue operatives from the insatiable Weyland-Yutani Corporation, and a host of horrifying creatures new to the Alien franchise.

You are the commander. They are your weapon.

Infiltrate large open levels and annihilate enemies with your squad, dispatching orders strategically and intuitively at the touch of a button. Tread carefully, as death is permanent and your foes will adapt their tactics to your actions while hunting you down. Forge unique paths for survival, uncovering shortcuts, creating safe zones, and setting up motion trackers in a persistent world where your actions impact levels forever.

Customize your squad with a selection of different classes. Level up and specialize your soldiers with unique abilities and an arsenal of weapons, armor, and perks, for high stakes missions in treacherous territory. Develop your base to research new tech and improve your squad even further.

Manage your resources wisely and take calculated risks to outsmart the deadliest creature mankind has ever faced. Can you and your squad stop the outbreak before it’s too late?

  • Face off in a gripping original Alien story against iconic Xenomorph creatures ranging from Facehuggers to Praetorians, Alien Queens and many more, including rogue human commandos and a brand-new threat unique to this Alien storyline
  • Lead strategically and change squad tactics from mission to mission, carefully managing your soldiers’ health, resources, and sanity, to avoid permanent team losses and mental breakdowns
  • Forge unique paths for survival in a persistent world, uncovering shortcuts, creating safe zones and setting up motion trackers to stay one step ahead of these creatures
  • Assemble and level up squads composed of 5 starting Marines classes, with dozens of specializations, unique abilities and weapons.

Aliens: Dark Descent will be available on both PC and next-gen consoles!

The future of Alien

The Alien franchise is taking a dramatic turn at 20th Century Studios, now owned by Disney. Currently there are two major Alien projects in development - a new Alien TV series by Noah Hawley and a new, stand-alone Alien movie being directed by Fede Alvarez. Both of which will be taking the franchise in a new direction - moving away from the Alien prequel direction Ridley Scott set out to pursue back in 2012.

Treat yourself to some Alien Merchandise!

I'm not much of a gamer but it's good to see this franchise being around still.

As both a military brat and a fan of military science fiction, the Trailer needs to be reworked, since the marines didn't behave like either proper marines or even proper colonial marines.

I do like the fact this video game will be using the Alien RPG as its lore bible.

Wow, looks like it will be like Silent Hill Book of Memories, so happy to know it will be a RPG title, too. Can't wait to play next year!
