Aliens is getting a single-player, action-horror game

Developer Survios is teaming up with 20th Century Fox to create a new single-player, action-horror game based on the Alien franchise. The long-running Aliens franchise is getting a new title. Following Predator: Hunting Grounds and Aliens: Fireteam Elite, which were released in 2020 and 2021, developer Survios is introducing yet another game to the lineup.

Simply titled Aliens, this new single-player game will be developed by Survios, which has a history of developing VR games, namely The Walking Dead Onslaught and Sprint Vector. The Unreal Engine 5 affair will be an "intense single-player, action horror game set in the iconic Alien universe", according to Survios. The story will be set between Aliens films and the Alien, "where a battle-hardened veteran has a vendetta against the Xenomorphs".

Given the "action" in "action horror", it's safe to assume this battle-hardened veteran will be armed well because no one retaliates against Xenomorphs with their mere fists. So we probably shouldn't expect something too close to Alien Isolation, but maybe something closer to Dead Space, Resident Evil, or the forthcoming Callisto Protocol.

Survios in the past has worked on VR games, including a title for The Walking Dead and a racing game called Sprint Vector. It has made one non-VR game for the Creed series, Big Rumble Boxing: Creed Champions.

“When I joined Survios in 2020, it was to build bigger, more ambitious games, using the best entertainment franchises across console, PC, and VR platforms,” said Chief Product Officer TQ Jefferson. “Aliens is a distinct and terrifying world that fans love to be entrenched in, and it is perfect for Survios’ proven expertise in creating immersive gaming experiences.”

As for that other forthcoming Aliens game, Aliens: Dark Descent, that's still scheduled to arrive sometime in 2023.
