Alien Isolation release date announced

All other priorities are rescinded.

Alien Isolation will be released on PC, PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, Xbox 360 and Xbox One from 7th October 2014, developer Creative Assembly has revealed.

The announcement was made today live on stage during the Alien Isolation panel at EGX Rezzed 2014, where the game's playable demo has enjoyed some of the biggest interest of anything on the show floor.

"We couldn't be happier to finally announce a date for Alien: Isolation,” Creative Assembly's Alistair Hope said. "The reaction we have seen so far has been simply incredible, from the screams and shrieks to the cold sweats and racing hearts. 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."

"It's not just the jump scares," Dan Whitehead wrote in Euroagmer's recent Alien Isolation preview. "It's the anticipation of them, the tingle of vulnerability, the frisson that comes from not knowing what's around the corner - not just the first time you turn it, but every time after that."
