    Colour me slightly intrigued. However, considering this seems to be the first game by this dev (at least I can't find anything else by them), I won't be holding my breath!

    First impressions of gameplay reminds me of Space Hulk - Deathwing, another game in which you play with a "squad". And single player is with a squad made of AI characters.

    Also, what makes it "next gen" exactly (other than it's released on PS5 and Xbox whatever!)? Looks pretty standard for current gen to me.

    Looks interesting enough - it's a shame it's 3rd person only though..but guess we'll have to see how it turns out when we get to play it. Key question for me is if they can get some semblance of a ,good Alien story into this, or will it just be horde mode on different maps.

    As a dedicated fan of Aliens, and the franchise in general, I feel very 'Meh' about yet another generic game type that has simply been reskinned to facilitate shoehorning into the moneyspinner.

    I stand open to being impressed by anyone that dares it, but remain on an express elevator to Hell and ready to drop with a Cheyenne full of rants and gripes about world detail inaccuracies!!

    I still think the Amstrad CPC version is the best aliens computer game I've played. They just keep f'ing it up with modern releases.
