Aliens Dark Descent has dropped a story teaser trailer ahead of the games release next week. The strategic, real-time, squad-based tactical action game set in the iconic Alien universe lands June 20 on PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4, Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One and PC. Pre-orders are available on all platforms and grant the “Lethe Recon Pack” DLC as a reward.
This thrilling gameplay takes place across a heart-pounding cinematic campaign full of horrors, wonders and sinister secrets befitting an authentic Alien narrative. The nightmare begins when the Otago spacecraft crash lands on Planet Lethe after a Xenomorph escapes containment, causing the activation of the Cerberus Protocol — a planetary lockdown preventing all ships from leaving or landing on the planet.
Aliens: Dark Descent’s original campaign will pit players against iconic Xenomorph creatures — from Facehuggers to Praetorians, Alien Queens and many more — as well as rogue human commandos and a brand-new threat. A cast of memorable characters sets the plot in motion, including Maeko Hayes, Deputy Administrator at Lethe’s Pioneer Station; Jonas Harper, Sergeant for the US Colonial Marines; and Barbara Pryce, Colony Director for Weyland-Yutani.
