Alien: Isolation Gets Mobile Port – Out In December
Sega and Creative Assembly have announced that one of the best survival horror games of recent times, Alien: Isolation, has been ported to both iOS and Android devices by Feral Interactive and will release in December. This is great news if you’ve not already been scared to death on PC or Consoles.
Designed around touchscreen play and a fully customisable interface, we can experience Alien: Isolation from the palm of our hands on 16th December. Hopefully, a smaller screen will mean a less terrifying journey through space, but we’re not sure.
Originally releasing in 2014 on PC, PS4, PS3, Xbox One & Xbox 360, Alien: Isolation took out all of the action and shooting which was the norm for Alien video games, and brought a true survival horror element as Amanda Ripley, is stalked by a single Xenomorph as she investigates the disappearance of her mother, Ellen Ripley. Alien: Isolation feels more like the first Alien movie as you are hunted and weapons are limited, usually your inventory will consist of a motion sensor so to progress, it’s recommended hiding places are found and utilised often.
Feral Interactive handled the 2019 Switch port, which runs on a form mobile architecture so was well suited to handle the mobile duties and will include all seven DLC packs including Last Survivor and Crew Expendable. From the trailer below, the game doesn’t look too bad, considering the hardware. It has an obvious downgrade to the PS4 & Xbox One versions but the full experience looks to be in tact.
Alien: Isolation will release on 16th December on both iOS and Android for £12.99 and available to preorder (iOS) and register interest (Android). Alien: Isolation is currently available on PC, PlayStation 4, Xbox One & Nintendo Switch.
