    Looks alright from the trailer shown so far. 2021 release date. Excited?

    Seems a bit generic though it's too early to judge...

    I would like to see Alien Isolation 2 or something else from that team, they made a piece of art.

    Yeah I agree with that. Hard to fault Alien Isolation.

    Funny, seems like a generic horde shooter would've been an obvious thing to go for, for such franchise as Aliens.
    Honestly surprised that it took this long for one to materialize.

    Looks kinda generic but i won't discredit it based on trailer alone, hopefully it'll have some staying power - besides like 3 exceptions, those games fizzle out really quick.

    Aliens versus Predator, the original one from... 2000 I think, that was a horde shooter and extremely fun, but it had singleplayer which is what made if fun for me.

    If this new one has singleplayer that will be awesome.

    Could be good cant be worse then Aliens: Colonial Marines if it has singleplayer, i could careless about these coop games.

    These is this void that AvP games left, there really has been good shoot based in the Alien/AvP universe in while

    Online-only game from completely new studio founded 5 years ago... What could possibly go wrong. I smell another Colonial Marines disaster.

    most of them.
    some are fun.

    this one looks like you and yer stupid online pals shooting hoards of hatchlings.
    has nothing to do with the great alien franchise.
    in the words of Donald J. Trump, sad !

    Can't help but feel they missed a trick by making it third person. Fairly sure the tension would be amped up going FPS. Looks decent though.

    It exists. It's called the patch, that finally fixed their stupid AI!

    But seriously, this looks like a remake of the Arcade AvP game without the Predator into a different format.

    Needs mod support so we can create new maps and game modes. If the PC has these tools and consoles can use those assets, it can be a good thing.

    devs are ex-cryptic studios. some of the folks who made neverwinter, star trek online, city of heroes.

    i know its alpha footage, but the animations look rough. anyway, i would be a lot more interested in this if it was first person...more atmospheric, more tense. as it stands, ill try to remain optimistic. horde shooters are lots of fun, even with randoms. i loved L4D and L4D2 (despite its excessively forgiving gameplay and departure from the grittier tone of the original)

    That means absolutely nothing. I have seen studios which had 1 guy who worked on successful game titles and the studio put them on their website as "what we worked on". You need 50+ very good and experienced devs to create a solid game of this scale. If you have 5 good devs and 50 noobs, you are f'cked.
