Sega posted a Developer diary for its upcoming game Alien: Isolation, shedding some light on the cast of the game.
The team aims to make their characters as believable as possible, one of the steps taken towards that goal is 3d-scanning the game’s voice-actors into the game as well as motion-captured facial animation.
The dev diary gave a sneakpeek of the game where Amanda’s plans to find her mother are discovered by her boss when she opts for a job in the region her mother is known to have been lost.
Alien Isolation centers around Amanda Ripley, daughter to Ellen Ripley from the original Alien Trilogy, as she searches for her mother 15 years after the company she works for loses contact with her ship The Nostromo.
When Amanda discovers the ship, she finds out that a lone Xenomorph has somehow made its way aboard the Nostromo and the surviving crew members are too concerned for their own safety to help her.
The Alien franchise has met with less success with each sequel being a jumbled mess too focused on the name rather than gameplay. However, Alien: Isolation will be the first title to continue on the original Alien storyline unlike other Alien titles.
So far the fans have shown interest in the game despite the recent Alien: Colonial Marine’s bad reception title. Now, will Creative Assembly execute the story well whilst avoiding all the mistake other studios have done with the franchise? We’ll know soon enough.
Alien Isolation is a survival horror first person shooter releasing on the PC, Xbox One, Xbox 360, Playstation 3, Playstation 4 on October 7.
