Looks interesting.  Might keep an eye on this.

Looks almost like World War Z but with Aliens, I'm okay with that idea.

Alien Isolation was amazing! I want a sequel to that :(

Unfortunately, that's not going to happen. The devs want to make a sequel but Sega won't let them, because the game tanked and barely sold more than Colonial Marines did, despite good reviews and positive feedback from fans :(.

The sound effects are pretty spot on....was just waiting for the "game over man" commentary somewhere in the trailer

This is pretty much right up my street when it comes to games.

Left 4 Dead PvE style gameplay? Check.
Set in a franchise that I like? Check.
Not an out-and-out horror game, as despite the good things I've heard about Isolation, I'm too much of a wuss to play it? Check.
Something I can quote endlessly whilst playing with friends to make them regret their choice? Check.

Bit surprised this is not 4 player but it's nowhere near a deal breaker. This might just be the Aliens game that Colonial Marines should have been.

It's funny this announcement happened not even a week after I watched Aliens for the first time. 😛

After enjoying the hell out of Alien: Isolation, I'm glad to see more games set in this franchise. It looks right up my alley too with it's co-op Left 4 Dead style gameplay. Really looking forward to this.

But you can't even pick to play as a Predator nor does it have beautiful Capcom pixel artwork or crazy Xeno's that turn in to a ball and roll at you.

Where did you get that info from? Couldnt find anything related to number of players in COOP.

IGN article mentions it being three player co-op https://www.ign.com/articles/aliens-fireteam-announced-for-pc-playstation-and-xbox

For a horrible second, I thought I'd mistook the "third person" as being the amount of players but no, it's 3 player and third person.

Seems alright, for an alpha build, and looks more akin to World War Z than Left for Dead. Although, I do expect more in the final build, as what's shown from the two videos isn't enough (for me). Not expecting it to surpass WWZ (especially after all its post-launch support), but I do hope for it to at least be really close to its base game.

 

Also liking the three player coop concept for two main reasons: it'll make the entire experience more intense (making the Alien enemies feel more threatening and giving the environments and levels more breathing room); and as fun as it is four player coop is an overused system. Four players would be better for an environmentally more open game.

Alien: Isolation is the only Horror game I could not play in the dark. I wish it would get a sequel rather than another Alien-skinned shooter.

Gotta agree with you there. Alien isolation is a one of a kind horror experience (at least for me) Still holding out they make sequel sometime down the line

Personally, I can't stand horror games, so I'd be glad to have an Aliens game that isn't quite so heavy on the... all of that.
