The Biggest Alien in an Alien Game Stalks You in Isolation

The largest alien in an Alien video game is in Alien: Isolation, and it's the only one you'll face in the upcoming survival horror game from Creative Assembly. This looks like one of those games that will kill me about eleventy-billion times during the course of finishing it. So, get used to seeing a lot of this.

That would definitely describe Aliens: Colonial Marines, in which the xenomorphs were decidedly un-threatening.

Creative Assembly says they have been working on the game for three years. This video showcases PlayStation 4 gameplay; the game will also release on the Xbox One and PC.

Xbox also released this announcement trailer for the game today:
