Today, Focus Entertainment and Tindalos Interactive, in collaboration with 20th Century Games, are launching digital and retail pre-orders for Aliens: Dark Descent with a thrilling new trailer.
The strategic, real-time, squad-based tactical action game set in the iconic Alien franchise will be released on June 20th on PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4, Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One, and PC.
In Aliens: Dark Descent, the horrors, and wonders of an authentic Alien narrative unfold through a cinematic campaign full of sinister secrets, iconic Xenomorphs, and brand-new threats. In the game, players command a squad of hardened Colonial Marines who must stop a terrifying Xenomorph outbreak on the planet Lethe.
A range of tactical abilities come into play as you recruit, level up and command a squad of Colonial Marines in real-time and as one unit with intuitive controls on both keyboard/mouse and controller.
Any command issued over comms is swiftly obeyed by the Marine best equipped for the situation, according to their abilities and equipment. Players will need to use their wits to navigate expansive, persistent, and reactive levels. However, each Marine’s vitals should be monitored cautiously, since death is permanent.
