    Following up on their promise to release more Alien spin offs, 20th Century Fox just announced a digital series based on the cutscenes from Alien: Isolation. The IGN press release says that "the goal was to offer new depth to a story that many gamers would have already experienced in 2014's release, and also tell the story in a newly accessible way for those who haven't," and mentions that some newly rendered scenes that weren't part of the original game will be in the series.

    Check out the trailer here.


    The official summary for the Alien: Isolation series reads: "Fifteen years have passed since the deep-space freighter Nostromo disappeared with all hands. And for fifteen years, Amanda Ripley has scoured the known universe for information about her mother, Ellen Ripley, the Nostromo's warrant officer. When representatives from the Weyland-Yutani Corporation approach Amanda with news that the Nostromo's flight recorder has finally been found and brought to the space station Sevastopol, Amanda joins the Company's expedition to the remote outpost. But when Amanda reaches the station, she walks into a living nightmare: Sevastopol's inhabitants have been terrorized, hunted, and brought to the brink of annihilation. Now she and a band of unprepared - and perhaps untrustworthy - survivors will have to confront the same diabolical species that changed her mother's fate forever."

    Cool. There are fan cuts out there, but this is great. I assume the newly rendered scenes are going to go over key plot points that happen between the cut scenes.

    The trailer was done well and made me want to play the game again.

    The only good Alien game. Plus the game is even ported to Linux. Too many good reasons to like this game.

    AvP was great but that was from like the early 2000s. We used to LAN so hard with that we’d run cat5 between houses.

    Alien Isolation was fantastic, sort of wish they would do another.

    I'd like to see this with KoTOR 1 and 2, as well.

    I had such a hard time finishing this game, they did an excellent job of setting the scene.

    I Liked the game but the constant "run and hide" aspect got old really quickly and hampered the progress to where it became no fun. You couldn't kill it, only annoy it. So instead of "I'm ready to get it on!!" it was "Game over man! Game over!" (RIP Bill Paxton). I eventually used a cheat where the alien couldn't detect me about half way through the game.

    I used two mods. The first turned the revolver into a one shot hand cannon and the second made you basically invisible to the alien.
