Get Alien Isolation for Free

Alien Isolation is now available for free on the Epic Games Store as today's installment in Epic's 15-day giveaway spree. This is yours to keep if you claim your copy between now and 11:00 am EST tomorrow, when the next freebie will take its place. The Aliens survival/horror game was the next entry on the recently leaked list predicting the titles for this promotion. If that means the list is accurate, then tomorrow's free game should be Metro 2033. Read on for more, but remember, in space no one can hear you describe a video game:
When she left Earth, Ellen Ripley promised her daughter she would return home to celebrate her 11th birthday. She never made it.

Fifteen years later, Amanda Ripley learns that the flight recorder from her mother's ship has been recovered. Amanda enters Sevastopol space station to finally solve the mystery of her mother's disappearance, only to confront an unknown menace.

Engage in a terrifying quest for survival as you navigate the labyrinthine Sevastopol station. Unprepared and underequipped, you will need all your wits and daring to get out alive.

I loved how somebody found out that the alien cheated and actually was able to beam from one place to another. It was not enough that they made it it invincible, no, they had to make it even more obnoxious by giving it that ability of immediate transportation. Reasons enough for me to watch a playthrough of this (which was alright as a movie) instead of bothering "playing" the game myself.

The alien only teleports as a last resort, for example if it's trapped for some reason. Definitely didn't experience any weirdness in my playthough. Highly recommend the game.

I used two mods, one turned the alien into a harmless puppy and the other made made the revolver a one shot killing hand cannon. [Overpowered Pistol]

Once the alien basically ignored you the game was much more enjoyable, at least until /spoiler all your weapons were taken away and then it was back to stealth timing to avoid the droids./end spoiler

Survival games freak me bad, was a *maybe* play (also got it full on Steam long ago).
Thanks a lot for the mods heads up, will look for more, stoked now !

But first will finish my first Witcher 3 play.
No mission missed, no mark on the map unvisited (a mod, among others).
Fantastic game.
I'm confident CD Projekt will polish Cyberpunk 2077 to the same level.


Did you get the Cyberpunk 2077 reference in a certain part of dialogue within Witcher 3?

The originals multiplayer was amazing. Always wanted a sequel but the follow up wasn't it.

I have to concur. The one from 2010 was utter shit. Through three different systems, I could never play that game without having it stop responding or just straight up CTD. The OG AvP was badass and the multiplayer was amazing.

It always strikes me as odd that Alien vs. Predator 2, from 2001, developed by Monolith, seems to have fallen down the memory hole. It appears to be in some sort of licensing hell, since it never made it to digital distribution, and consequently it tends to get ignored in discussions like these. As a single player game, it was vastly superior to AvP1 in every respect. In multiplayer, it didn't do that much different than AvP1, but critically it actually had functioning net code and dedicated servers out of the box. Easily a top 5 PC FPS for me, during that golden era between Half-Life, when PC shooters reached maturity, and Halo 2, when PC shooters fell out of favor for multiplatform, console-first development.

Was just about to post something like this. Yeah AvP2 is an awesome game. Graphically maybe not on the same atmospheric level as the first one (even though it featured better graphics, it had worse lighting) but it was still an awesome game that I enjoyed more than the first AvP. Loved both of those games to bits.

I felt that I didn't have the desire to play on more than easy mode - it was still fun - and you could beat the droids to death quickly if you needed to.

You might make a case for the original from 2000, but that remake was a big steaming pile of mediocrity.

I may have become used to movement as I can play FO4VR with the locomotion like vanilla, so I didn't find the movement for Alien that bad either. However, I will say the mod gives a bit of novelty to the game, but not something I'd care to use if I ever replay the game. For reasons mentioned...
It's a helluva game in the Alien universe imo!

This was on sale for $3 last year, and I missed it.

I guess good things do come to those that wait.

There is a VR mod for Alien Isolation. You will read about people with iron bellies not feeling any discomfort, but don't be fooled. There are plenty of glitchy moments, misaligned gameplay/HUD, and general play movement that can make it a bit frustrating, or even VR sickening. And it may still be worth it. You have been warned.

CDPR copied the "immediate transportation" feature and applied it to the cops in cyberpunk, so it must be a good feature.

Originally quit playing a few hours in and set the game aside due to being too scared and frustrated...
Then i read about the mods, without them i never would have finished the game

Man, I am not doing good this season with getting the EGS freebies. I missed several already; whenever I'm at the computer with free time I've been playing Cyberpunk 2077, or reading about it, haven't remembered to check the EGS stuff.

I seem to remember to check EGS when the free game is something I already own though.

So nice that every so often Epic gives away a fairly decent game that is still selling, instead of the usual $2 specials and/or decent games already given away multiple times (looking at you, GOG!)
EDIT--Bizarre that Sweeney lists the release date for the game as "Dec 2020"...;) Getting harder and harder to sift through all of the lies and misrepresentations assaulting us these days....Why didn't he just put down the actual release date of the game? Oct 07, 2014

It is well known that I don't make mistakes--so, if you should happen across an error in something I have written, you can be confident in the fact that *I* did not write it.
