I’m not the biggest fan of horror games because I’m a big chicken. When it comes to horror movies I love them, but put me in the driver seat of a horror game and I will have a bad time. But this game has gotten some good praise and would be great for the franchise to get a reboot. Key features included in this game are:
- OVERCOME AN EVER-PRESENT DEADLY THREAT – Experience persistent fear as a truly dynamic and reactive Alien uses its senses to hunt you down and respond to your every move.
- IMPROVISE TO SURVIVE – Hack systems, scavenge for vital resources and craft items to deal with each situation. Will you evade your enemies, distract them or face them head on?
- EXPLORE A WORLD OF MYSTERY AND BETRAYAL – Immerse yourself in the detailed setting of Sevastopol, a decommissioned trading station on the fringes of space. Encounter a rich cast of inhabitants in a world scarred by fear and mistrust.
