Focus Entertainment and Tindalos Interactive, in partnership with 20th Games, have unveiled Aliens: Dark Descent - a single player squad-based action game set in the iconic Alien franchise. The game is in development for PS5, PS4, Xbox Series, Xbox One and PC.

Players will immerse themselves in a new alien story where you lead a squad of marines in real-time battles against the deadliest creatures mankind has ever seen.

Gameplay inspired by CRPG titles

“We are honored to be working with 20th Century Studio and Disney on a new project in this unique franchise alongside our excellent partners at Tindalos Interactive. Their experience, talent and passion for the license will make Aliens: Dark Descent an iconic new chapter in the Alien franchise." John Bert, Managing Director at Focus Entertainment.

Romain Clavier, CEO & Creative Director at Tindalos Interactive: “The entire team at Tindalos is dedicated to creating a gaming experience that reflects the spirit of the Alien franchise while bringing its own never-before-seen elements to the iconic universe. The gameplay we've developed is unique, inspired by our favorite tactical and CRPG games and packed with heart-pounding real-time action. Translating the deadliest threat humankind has ever seen from film to game has been a real challenge, but I'm absolutely sure most of you are absolutely, as Hiccup would say, "excited."

"We're excited to bring a deep single player experience to the popular Alien franchise thanks to the bright minds of our friends at Focus and Tindalos," said Luigi Priore, Vice President at Disney, Pixar & 20th Games. "Fans of the franchise should be excited to dive into this new experience and experience tactical, engaging gameplay unlike any previous Alien game."

Players will discover the horrors and wonders of the alien universe like never before. You'll be immersed in a brand new alien story that introduces a new threat and a cast of new marines to the iconic horror franchise. Plus, you'll discover the dark secrets of the planet Lethe, battle an onslaught of the signature Xenomorph, and put an end to this new plague.

Real-time, squad-based tactical combat

Aliens: Dark Descent - You lead a team of experienced Colonial Marines on the moon Lethe in battle against fearsome Xenomorphs. Players and their soldiers engage in real-time battles against legendary Xenomorphs, lone fighters from the greedy Weyland-Yutani Corporation, and numerous horror creatures celebrating their premiere in the Alien series.
"You are the Commander. They are your weapon,” is the motto.

Big open levels are waiting. Enemies are then destroyed as a team: players give strategic and intuitive commands at the touch of a button. "But be careful, as your enemies will adapt their tactics to your actions as they hunt you relentlessly," says Focus Interactive. Death lurks everywhere. "Carve your own unique path to survival. Find shortcuts, create safe zones, install motion detectors, and experience a persistent world where your actions have lasting effects on the levels.”

Players can customize their team with a choice of different classes, upgrading and even specializing the soldiers with distinctive abilities, as well as an arsenal of weapons, armor, and perks. Well equipped, they dare risky missions in explosive territories. It is important to develop a base to research new technology and further strengthen the team.

Resources must be wisely managed and calculated risks taken to outwit the deadliest enemy mankind has ever known.

  • Fight against legendary Xenomorphs including Facehuggers, Praetorians, Alien Queens and many others in an exciting Alien original story. Human lone fighters and a brand new threat unique to this alien story await you too.
  • Take strategic leadership and switch team tactics on each mission. Carefully manage your soldiers' health, resources and sanity and avoid permanent team losses and nervous breakdowns.
  • Carve out your unique path to survival in a long-lived world. Find shortcuts, create safe zones and set up motion detectors to stay one step ahead of the horror creatures.
  • Form and strengthen teams from 5 starting marine classes, with dozens of specializations, unique abilities and weapons.

In the world premiere of the reveal trailer, join a squad of Colonial Marines on a reconnaissance mission to the planet Lethe and get your first look at Aliens: Dark Descent.
