, an upcoming Aliens
squad-based action game. And after seeing how well space marines fare in the
Aliens movies, who wouldn't want to enlist? The video includes no gameplay, and

Summer Game Fest 2022." It concludes with a 2023 date, and logos for publisher
Focus home Interactive, developer Tindalos Interactive, the Unreal Engine, PC,
PlayStation, and Xbox. It also has the

In Aliens: Dark Descent, command a squad of
hardened Colonial Marines to stop a terrifying Xenomorph outbreak on Moon Lethe.
Lead your soldiers in real-time combat against iconic Xenomorphs, rogue
operatives from the insatiable Weyland-Yutani Corporation, and a host of
horrifying creatures new to the Alien franchise.
You are the commander. They are your weapon.
Infiltrate large open levels and annihilate enemies with your squad, dispatching
orders strategically and intuitively at the touch of a button. Tread carefully,

while hunting you down. Forge unique paths for survival, uncovering shortcuts,
creating safe zones, and setting up motion trackers in a persistent world where
your actions impact levels forever.
Customize your squad with a selection of different classes. Level up and
specialize your soldiers with unique abilities and an arsenal of weapons, armor,
and perks, for high stakes missions in treacherous territory. Develop your base

Manage your resources wisely and take calculated risks to outsmart the deadliest
creature mankind has ever faced. Can you and your squad stop the outbreak before
it’s too late?
