Alien: Isolation bursts out in October

In a startling break with standard practice, it seems Sega has taken to announcing the release dates of AAA games on a Saturday. This way lies madness, friends. What next, Half-Life 3 confirmed on Christmas Eve. Anyway. Alien: Isolation. October 7th.

"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," says Alistair Hope, creative lead at Creative Assembly. But don't take his word for it, check out our hands-on from GDC last week. You can also find Chris Thursten's extended preview here .

Tim Clark

With over two decades covering videogames, Tim has been there from the beginning. In his case, that meant playing Elite in 'co-op' on a BBC Micro (one player uses the movement keys, the other shoots) until his parents finally caved and bought an Amstrad CPC 6128. These days, when not steering the good ship PC Gamer, Tim spends his time complaining that all Priest mains in Hearthstone are degenerates and raiding in Destiny 2. He's almost certainly doing one of these right now.
