Survios, a multi-platform game development studio and publisher, has announced that it has embarked on a new collaboration with 20th Century Games to develop a new game set in the Alien universe.
While the name of the game is still a mystery, a press release shared by Survios can confirm that its Aliens project will be an “intense single-player, action-horror game.” It is being developed for PC, console, and VR platforms using Unreal Engine 5 and will tell “an untold Aliens story” that takes place between the first two films, according to a blurb on the official website.
This new Aliens game will feature an original storyline, set between the Alien and Aliens ﬁlms, where a battle hardened veteran has a vendetta against the Xenomorphs.
The game will take full advantage of Survios’ expertise in creating immersive and authentic gaming experiences, and is being developed for the PC, Console, and VR.
Survios will share more details about the game during the ALIEN: Expanding a Dark and Frightening Universe panel at San Diego Comic-Con. The panel will take place on July 21, 2022 from 2:00 to 3:00 p.m. in room 28DE.
“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 TQ Jefferson, Chief Product Officer at Survios. “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.”
“The vast universe of Alien is full of untold stories, and opportunities to create gripping original games,” said Luigi Priore, vice president, Disney, Pixar and 20th Century Games. “We’re thrilled to work with a team like Survios who shares our passion for Alien, and for immersing fans into new worlds and experiences.”
Survios’ previous projects include The Walking Dead: Onslaught, Westworld Awakening, and Creed: Rise to Glory. All of these titles are playable in VR.
Survios is seeking various creatives to bolster the development team for its Aliens project, including environment artists, sound designers, and AI engineers.
