Alien: Isolation trailer looks at misdirection

Alien Isolation - 03
He’s behiiiiiiind yooooooou! Probably.

Alright, I admit it, I’m really starting to look forward to Alien: Isolation – despite my better judgment.

The latest trailer for the stealth-horror game is another short one, but unlike Hear You Scream, this one – titled Misdirection – is worth a watch. It doesn’t show off lots of gameplay or anything, but I’ll confess to getting a sense of creeping dread when the Alien actually turns up. This is basically what I want from Alien: Isolation; a game based around Alien rather than Aliens, with a silent, deadly killer stalking me through sci-fi environments. It’s hard to judge whether that’s what Alien: Isolation actually is, but I’m beginning to get my hopes up.

Alien: Isolation is due out on 7 October. Will it be good? Will it be a bit poo? We’ll find out in a couple of weeks.

    Tim has been playing PC games for longer than he’s willing to admit. He’s written for a number of publications, but has been with PC Invasion – in all its various incarnations – for over a decade. When not writing things about games, Tim can occasionally be found speedrunning some really terrible ones, making people angry in Dota 2, or playing something obscure and random. He’s also weirdly proud of his status as (probably) the Isle of Man’s only professional games journalist.
