Aliens: Isolation to star Ellen Ripley's daughter?

The next Aliens game is called Aliens: Isolation and stars the daughter of big shot space officer Ellen Ripley, according to a Kotaku source.

In development at Creative Assembly and due out next year for current and next-gen consoles, the game is a first-perosn shooter with stealth and horror elements inspired by titles like Dishonored and BioShock, according to the report.

Sega apparently took the critical reception to Aliens: Colonial Marines very seriously, and set out to put together a better game with Isolation. It was originally supposed to debut at E3 in June, reports Kotaku, but its reveal was pushed back.

The majority of the game is said to be set in a single space station. There will be just one alien, for the most part, with players mostly combating clones and soldiers. Vents, lockers, and melee weapons will play a large role in the game, which is said to be heavily inspired by the first Alien movie.

Of course, as the game is still yet to be announced, don’t take any of this as official. The name is likely right, though, considering a trademark was recently filed and a domain was registered through Sega’s usual registrar months ago.

    I hope they learn from those past mistakes. The game has so much potential and I highly suggest they take tips from dishonored, bioshock, or even deadspace.

    It’ll be fine, as long that the game’s debut trailer is representative of the final game. The idea does seem interesting though, but we’ll see…

    Daughter? When did she have time to have a daughter?

    Oh no….you don’t mean….

      Were you not paying attention to the movies. Ellen Ripley had a human daughter on earth but when, Ripley put herself in stasis, fifty-seven years had pass and her daughter died.

        Oh now I think I remember…thanks.

        But this will sort of bring up all kinds of plot holes…

          They obviously cloned her daughter too, there I solved all kinds of plot holes xD

        • Sevyne

          The answer is simple, and it’s always this simple.

    • Sevyne

      lol! She did have an actual daughter, but playing as that thing would be pretty hilarious.

  • Fango

    Only one alien? This game sucks already.

  • 罪罰

    Creative Assembly? Well, that’s.. amusing.

  • CaptainSatanica

    She did return to earth (as a clone) bit who knows what happens on earth , had a kid?

  • captainhowdy

    This is awesome. Please don’t screw it up Sega.

  • Elvick

    They’re going to need to release a demo to prove themselves after the last one. I can’t imagine people will be jumping at this without thinking of the last trainwreck.

    Though, maybe it would sell anyway. Some IPs sell regardless of a previous bad title. Not sure how big the IP is for games.
