From Press Release:
PARIS – June 20, 2023 – Today Tindalos Interactive and Focus Entertainment, in collaboration with 20th Century Games, are proud to announce the launch of Aliens: Dark Descent, a strategic, real-time, squad-based tactical action game set in the iconic Alien universe. A new spine-tingling launch trailer has also dropped, leading the way for fans to learn more about the Xenomorph threat that lurks on Planet Lethe. Aliens: Dark Descent is available now on PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4, Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One and PC globally.
In Aliens: Dark Descent, players command a squad of hardened Colonial Marines as they attempt to stop a terrifying new threat on Planet Lethe. Led as one unit with intuitive controls on keyboard and mouse as well as on controller, the squad takes on real-time combat against iconic Xenomorphs, rogue operatives from the insatiable Weyland-Yutani, and a host of horrifying creatures new to the Alien universe. Using a range of tactical abilities, players will unravel an authentic Alien tale full of sinister secrets, diving in and exploring the horrors and wonders of a cinematic narrative campaign.
As they infiltrate large open levels and annihilate enemies with their squad, players can use comms to dispatch orders that will be swiftly obeyed by the Marine best equipped for the situation. They will need to use their wits to navigate the game’s expansive, persistent, reactive levels and complete objectives. Being cautious and monitoring each Marine’s vitals is essential, for death is permanent for any who fall in combat.
Players can find refuge in their base — the stranded Otago spacecraft. There they can customize their squad with a selection of different Marine classes. Level up and specialize each soldier with unique abilities and an arsenal of weapons, armor, and perks. Players can also treat wounds and trauma, as well as research new tech to improve their squad even further.
Aliens: Dark Descent is available now on PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4, Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One and PC. For more information, visit the Focus Entertainment website.
