Focus Entertainment, a video game developer, has recently released an exciting new trailer for their upcoming game, Aliens: Dark Descent. The game is set to be the latest addition to the popular Aliens franchise and is already generating a lot of buzz among fans. The trailer offers a sneak peek into the game’s storyline and teases a brand new breed of Xenomorph.
Towards the end of the trailer, viewers catch a glimpse of the new Xenomorph – a creature that appears to be a slightly different take on the iconic alien. It has fleshier colors and gnarly, human-like teeth that are sure to send shivers down your spine. Along with this new Xenomorph, an interesting humanoid creature is also introduced, further increasing the anticipation and excitement surrounding the game.
According to the developers, Aliens: Dark Descent will offer players “the horrors and wonders of an authentic Alien narrative” through a cinematic campaign full of sinister secrets, iconic Xenomorphs, and brand-new threats. In the game, players will need to utilize a range of tactical abilities to recruit, level up, and command a squad of Colonial Marines in real-time. The game features intuitive controls on both keyboard and mouse and controller, allowing players to command their squad as one unit. Any command issued over comms is swiftly obeyed by the Marine best-equipped for the situation according to their abilities and equipment.
Moreover, the game’s expansive, persistent, and reactive levels are designed to challenge players’ wits, keeping them on their toes at all times. Players must also monitor each Marine’s vitals carefully because, in Aliens: Dark Descent, death is permanent.
Focus Entertainment has also shared some pre-order incentives on their website. Fans who purchase the game before June 20th for $39.99 on PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, or PC will receive the “Lethe Recon Pack.” The pack includes black armor for the player’s squad and a unique cat companion, which is a nod to Jones, the cat from Alien.
