It's fifteen years since the Nostromo went dark, and Amanda Ripley is still hunting for reasons behind the disappearance of her mother, Ellen. So off she trots to Sevastopol Station, where it seems that the Nostromo's flight recorder has been found.
Welcome, ladies and gentlemen, to Alien: Isolation.
The review embargo is up and the game is out next week, but unfortunately we're not quite ready to publish our critical appraisal of the game just yet. Instead, here's a slightly edited (SEGA have limited the length of the videos we can make ahead of launch) look at the game's opening scenes, Amanda's first interactions with her companions on the trip, and what happens when they reach Sevastopol itself.
The review will go live ahead of Tuesday's launch, and there'll almost certainly be a video of yours truly screaming in terror along with some further gameplay footage over the weekend. In the interim, however, here's a little look at the first moments of Alien: Isolation.
