In honor of a planet few would want to take a trip to, Steam has briefly put Alien Isolation on sale. As of 4/26, or LV426, those interested can purchase it for the low price of $2.00. That is a whopping 95 percent off of the regular price. Alien Isolation helped revive an otherwise failing gaming franchise. After the much maligned, and disastrous, Colonial Marines, few believed another game would gain traction with fans and regain their support. Released in 2014, it went on to win many awards in the gaming community.
The accolades came from both design, visuals, and overall optimization. IGN called it “An Eternal Terror.” This time around, the franchise was taken back to the survival horror roots from which it sprang. Unlike previous outings, you no longer were a part of a military initiative. You did not have crates of ammo or multitudes of weapons within arm’s reach. This time the “predators” were either humans, androids, or the Alien, and you were pretty much on your own. Only your wits, reflexes, and cunning could get you out alive.
