In space, no one can hear you scream. At least with Alien: Isolation, gamers now know when they’ll be able to hear retailers scream “the ship date is here.” SEGA today announced the Alien Isolation release date as October 7, 2014.
Alien: Isolation will be available for Xbox One and PS4, as well as Xbox 360, PS3 and PC. SEGA’s announcement of the Alien Isolation release date implies the game will ship for all systems simultaneously.

Alien: Isolation is a first-person survival horror game that tries to capture the fear and tension evoked by Ridley Scott’s 1979 original film. In the game, players will find themselves in “an atmosphere of constant dread and mortal danger” as an unpredictable and ruthless Xenomorph is out there stalking and killing deep in the shadows.
Under-powered and under-prepared, gamers must scavenge resources, improvise solutions and use their wits to succeed in their mission, sure, but frankly just to stay alive.
With a simultaneous worldwide Alien Isolation release date for five platforms, developer Creative Assembly certainly has its work cut out for it. With the game available on Xbox One and PlayStation 4, which system do you suppose is the “base platform” for coding? Fanboys of both systems will surely speculate, considering the technical spec battle that continues to rage. Frankly, the Xbox 360 or PS3 could be the base platform, considering all systems can output 1080p. But that’s just speculative and perhaps a tad unlikely.
“We couldn’t be happier to finally announce a date for Alien: Isolation,” said Alistair Hope, Creative Lead at Creative Assembly. “The reaction we have seen so far has been simply incredible, from the screams and shrieks to the cold sweats and racing hearts. It’s the Alien game that we’ve always wanted to play, and we can’t wait to let everyone get their hands on it this fall.”
Now that we know the Alien Isolation release date as Oct. 7, the only question — and hope — is whether the game will play better than SEGA’s last Alien outing. Here’s hoping!
