But wait, there’s more! Aside from the sale, and included in it, is none other than Sega. The iconic publisher has arrived on GOG for the first time, with a collection of titles from throughout its history. It starts though, with the modern classic Alien: Isolation.
A game that brings the horror series back to the original film, AI traps players in a space station that’s falling apart, and up against a single xenomorph. No pulse rifles here, this one’s all about creeping horror and stating away from the title monster. Click here to check out our review of the game at launch.
