Aliens: Dark Descent brings terror to real-time strategy this June

From Tindalos Interactive and Focus Entertainment, Aliens: Dark Descent is set to be the first real-time, squad-based strategy title to feature the IP.

Send in the marines

We hadn’t heard all that much about Aliens: Dark Descent since it was revealed almost a year ago. What we knew was that developer Tindalos Interactive’s newest was to be a real-time strategy game, featuring squad-based gameplay.

And while it looked promising, that was kind of all there was to know about the game. Since then too, there’s been precious little to glean with few glimpses here and there. That’s to say, till today.

Focus Interactive has revealed way more about it now, including a new trailer and a release date that’s not that far off.

Recruit, level up and command your squad of Colonial Marines in real time as one unit with intuitive controls on both keyboard and mouse or controller. Watch how commands issued over comms are swiftly obeyed by the marine best-equipped for the situation according to their abilities and equipment. Players will need to use their wits to navigate expansive, persistent and reactive levels and complete objectives. But be cautious and monitor each marine’s vitals – death is permanent for any who fall in combat.
