According to an IGN article published on January 7th, the game has been revealed in various leaks over the last few months, but this new information provides gamers with an official announcement.

The game, developed by Creative Assembly, will take place on an desolate space station under siege from a Xenomorph, the classic enemy from both the films and games. Players will take control of Ellen Ripley's daughter Amanda as she fights to survive.

Creative lead Alistair Hope states that the game is built to be terrifying and goes back to the "roots of Ridley Scott’s 1979 movie, the original survival horror" with an alien "as intelligent as he is hostile, relentless, brutal and unstoppable."

The game will be releasing on Xbox One, Xbox 360, PS3, PS4, and PC with the game running in 1080p resolution on both Xbox One and PS4 as reported in a GameSpot article released January 8th.

The game is scheduled for release in late 2014.
