Pre-orders are now offically open for Aliens: Dark Descent, the tactical squad-based title being developed by Tindalos Interactive and published by Focus Entertainment. To celebrate the fast approaching release date of June 20th, a new story focused trailer has dropped, promising planetary mysteries to reveal and more stoic soldier rhetoric: “we’re marines, that’s the job”.
It’s a relatively short trailer, hinting at some of the story beats and a new threat we can expect to explore in the reaches of space. There’s even a couple of snippets of gameplay towards the end, just to tease those XCOM itches that have been dormant for a while.
Aliens: Dark Descent seems to be shaping up nicely as it heads toward its final form. Will it be a Xeno to match the might of its previous iterations? We’ll have to wait and see, but let’s keep our fingers crossed it bursts out of this host better than Aliens: Colonial Marines did.
Aliens: Dark Descent will be slithering onto PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4, Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One and PC this June 20. Digital and retail pre-orders are open for all platforms and should you choose to pre-order your copy, you’ll receive the Lethe Recon Pack as a reward, fancy.
Just under two months to go until you’ll be commanding your marines through a nightmarish Alien adventure, until then we’ll have to stick to the shadows and enjoy celebrating yesterday’s Alien day.
