Trailer: Sink your teeth into the twisted story of Aliens: Dark Descent

Taking the iconic action/horror franchise into the strategic realm, Aliens: Dark Descent presents threats both xenomorphic and original.

Fresh fear

This thrilling gameplay takes place across a heart-pounding cinematic campaign full of horrors, wonders and sinister secrets befitting an authentic Alien narrative. The nightmare begins when the Otago spacecraft crash lands on Planet Lethe after a Xenomorph escapes containment, causing the activation of the Cerberus Protocol — a planetary lockdown preventing all ships from leaving or landing on the planet.

Aliens: Dark Descent’s original campaign will pit players against iconic Xenomorph creatures — from Facehuggers to Praetorians, Alien Queens and many more — as well as rogue human commandos and a brand-new threat. A cast of memorable characters sets the plot in motion, including Maeko Hayes, Deputy Administrator at Lethe’s Pioneer Station; Jonas Harper, Sergeant for the US Colonial Marines; and Barbara Pryce, Colony Director for Weyland-Yutani.

Focus Entertainment press release

From Focus Entertainment and Tindalos Interactive, and in “collaboration” with 20th Century Games, Aliens: Dark Descent lands on consoles and PC next week, on June 20th. Look for for Xbox and PlayStation platforms, and PC.
