Story trailer released for squad-based tactics game Aliens: Dark Descent, releases next week

From Press Release:

PARIS – June 15, 2023 – Today Focus Entertainment and Tindalos Interactive, in collaboration with 20th Century Games, have revealed a gripping new story trailer for Aliens: Dark Descent. The strategic, real-time, squad-based tactical action game set in the iconic Alien universe lands June 20 on PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4, Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One and PC. Pre-orders are available on all platforms and grant the “Lethe Recon Pack” DLC as a reward. Watch the trailer and discover the unbearable tension and horrific action of the game’s cinematic narrative campaign firsthand.

In Aliens: Dark Descent, players take on real-time combat against iconic Xenomorphs and brand-new threats. Using a range of tactical abilities, you’ll recruit, level up and command a squad of Colonial Marines as one unit with intuitive controls on keyboard and mouse, as well as on controller. Players will need to use their wits to navigate expansive, persistent and reactive levels where death is permanent.

Prepare for a terrifying original Alien tale

This thrilling gameplay takes place across a heart-pounding cinematic campaign full of horrors, wonders and sinister secrets befitting an authentic Alien narrative. The nightmare begins when the Otago spacecraft crash lands on Planet Lethe after a Xenomorph escapes containment, causing the activation of the Cerberus Protocol — a planetary lockdown preventing all ships from leaving or landing on the planet.

Aliens: Dark Descent’s original campaign will pit players against iconic Xenomorph creatures — from Facehuggers to Praetorians, Alien Queens and many more — as well as rogue human commandos and a brand-new threat. A cast of memorable characters sets the plot in motion, including Maeko Hayes, Deputy Administrator at Lethe’s Pioneer Station; Jonas Harper, Sergeant for the US Colonial Marines; and Barbara Pryce, Colony Director for Weyland-Yutani.

Gear up and discover the source of a strange and dire threat when Aliens: Dark Descent releases on June 20 for PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4, Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One and PC. Digital and retail pre-orders are open now for all platforms.
