Alien: Isolation sequel4,620 Views16 RepliesAdd A Reply
For all you "Alien: Isolation" fans, what do you think would be an appropriate sequel to game? I played the games twice and I'm absolutely in love with the raw horror and vulnerability that the crew of the Nostromo felt, a sequel to the game would be awesome. So what are your thoughts on a sequel, how would Amanda battle the xenomorphs now that Sevastopol is destroyed? Would they go back to LV-426? What do you think?
Nothing the God of biomechanics wouldn't let you in heaven for
My concept for a sequel is this.We she jettisoned her self along with the xenomorph in space.The last thing we see is her drifting in space seemingly unconscious before we see the shadow of a ship come over her.We have no idea about the fate of the crew of the Torrens(presumably dead)or the xenomorph.So here's what I'm thinking,Amanda is rescued.Possibly by Weyland Yutani but I'm thinking more along the lines of William Gibson's space commies.So they rescue her,board the torrens and find the dead crew.The xenomorph is unknown.At the end of Isolation there were quite a few before Sebastopol was destroyed but seemingly only one in the torrens.So let's say the one Amanda jettisoned with her is lying dormant in space.They recover it along with her and with out her knowing.While in their company she eventually learns of the recovered xenomorph,and also learns that they've been running experiments on it much like what dk said.She attempts to sabotage there experiments but ends up being caught and held prisoner much like in KNF's idea.Eventually all goes wrong the xenomorph break out.Survivors turn to Amanda for her expertise with the species.Although she's become very cynical(much like her mother)having no other choice she obliges to help.Of course the idea is for it to be on a slightly higher scale than Isolation but with out becoming an action game.Dead Space 2 is a great frame of reference

I'd like to see a similar survivor horror but with more adventure element. I hope we get a game that is similar to Prometheus and Alien: Covenant someday. Where the player go to a planet where he/she get knowledge of the engineers and alien creatures. Where the player can actually fight with the aliens but with limited source, something like in RE7.
@metalos Yah that would be cool, kind of what Aliens did for Ellen Ripley, she encountered the alien, but never went on the ship. Maybe she would find the report that the ship in Alien: Isolation of where they found the alien, she would go there trying to kill the ship but the company would stop here and loose contact with the whole company... kind of like a battle on LV-426 with possibly a queen THAT WOULD BE AWESOME!!
It'd be interesting if Amanda and some W-Y Commandos actually boarded the Narcissus and found Ripley, but a hidden egg/facehugger ruins everything and Amanda has to abandon the Narcissus and battle the aliens that got onto the W-Y Commando ship.
I would like to see her get taken aboard a WY ship that is experimenting with an egg. Things go wrong and she has to work with ship crew members to survive. They know what happened in the last game. Let's just say that not everyone has the same agenda and it can be hard to know whom can be trusted.
Love this game played it like ten times and one idea I had was maybe she is picked up by a predator ship and she wakes up and most of the predators are dead because one of the aliens gets aboard their ship and predators who are left alive are hunting it and you earn one predators respect so he helps you once in awhile but he's not following by your side like a companion on Skyrim he just comes and goes as he pleases and will even use Ripley as bait to lure out the alien
We need a sequel to Alien Isolation, especially now when AC is around the corner and other merchandise is released. Utilize this momentum game devs! It's only good for everyone.
If not another tense and scary stealth game, I'd like too see a pure Aliens game with Colonial Marines done well, and/or AvP 4 as the latest AvP was underrated and pretty good.
My only request would be that they make the game in 3rd person view, and not 1st person.
Heck, I'd be happy if they went back and re-made Isolation in 3rd person... then I'd actually be able to play it.
I think Alien games are best enjoyed in 1st person perspective imo (it's also a tradition), it enhances the horror during xeno confrontations.
To make the experience even more authentic, VR is probably the best way to go at the cost of looking like a ridiculous cyborg villain from a cheap 80's sci-fi B-movie (Erdadicator 4: Day of Judgment, direct-to VHS)
There is a short demo on YT of Isolation in 3rd person. Maybe the option to play either mode would be nice.
Maybe a character she teams up with surname McClaren who she goes onto marry just to make that connection to burke and ripleys aliens scene and to let the character have a fighting chance when you get nabbed by the xeno(s), eg; flamethrower or molotov not instant death and game restart would be nice.
The 1HKO was one of the greatest strengths with Alien Isolation; few games these days make you feel like a real vulnerable human being, and the brutal fact that one mistake could lead to instant death gives the game a certain nerve where just sneaking through a corridor can be a greater sense of achievement than mowing down 10000 enemies in the CoD games (which on the other hand makes up for it with adrenaline)
We proceed where you get firearms that can easily take care of humans and Working Joe's but also attracts the alien. Is it worth it?
When you're given the flamethrower, the game's pacing rapidly increases to the point where the game spiritually mirrors the last act in Alien where Ripley runs around with a flamethrower, just as you are now enabled and sometimes forced to rush forward while torching the beast. Problem is that fuel comes in limited supply and has to be used tactically.
This game is not only masterfully designed but has a lot of depth, not mention love for the first film with all the easter eggs and nods, and I doubt another Alien game can top this in the near future (or ever)
Third Person would be less scary since you can see behind yourself Cmutt!
@Neomorph, AI is one of my fave games, it makes you feel like you have stepped into that universe of the first movie, the retrolook young people call it now, but to myself who saw it when it showed in 1979 the compact cassette players, bulky computers and the clothing styles and pendulum birds lol! was all real, i am pleased to see the developers did the research of that time period to get the visual feel right.
If they do make AI2 the developers will probably expand on capabilities like the halo series.
