The survival-horror title that puts players in the role of Ripley's daughter trying to survive against a single Xenomorph is now scheduled to be launched on Oct. 7, 2014 across all platforms.

"We couldn’t be happier to finally announce a date for Alien: Isolation," said Alistair Hope, Creative Lead at Creative Assembly in a press release. "The reaction we have seen so far has been simply incredible, from the screams and shrieks to the cold sweats and racing hearts. It’s the Alien game that we've always wanted to play and we can’t wait to let everyone get their hands on it this fall."

Creative Assembly is attempting to recreate the feel of Ridley Scott's landmark 1979 Alien film starring Sigourney Weaver as Ellen Ripley. In Alien: Isolation, players take on the role of Amanda Ripley as she investigate the disappearance of her mother. This search leads her to the space station Sevastopol to to find the flight recorder of the Nostromo but she also finds herself weaponless against a single Alien that is hunting and killing all the station's occupants.
