You are the commander. They are your weapon.
In Aliens: Dark Descent, players command a squad of hardened Colonial Marines as they attempt to stop a terrifying new threat on Planet Lethe. With intuitive controls on keyboard & mouse as well as on controller, the squad takes on real-time combat against iconic Xenomorphs, rogue operatives from the insatiable Weyland-Yutani, and a host of horrifying creatures new to the Alien universe. Using a range of tactical abilities, players will unravel an authentic Alien narrative full of sinister secrets, diving in and exploring the horrors and wonders of a cinematic, narrative campaign.
As they infiltrate large open levels and annihilate enemies with their squad, players use their comms to dispatch orders that are swiftly obeyed by the Marine best-equipped for the situation. They will need to use their wits to navigate the game’s expansive, persistent, reactive levels and complete objectives. Being cautious and monitoring each Marines’ vitals is essential, for death is permanent for any who falls in combat.
Players can find refuge in their base — the stranded Otago spacecraft. There, they can customise their squad with a selection of different Marine classes. They can level up and specialise each soldier with unique abilities and an arsenal of weapons, armour, and perks. They can also treat wounds and trauma, as well as research new tech to improve their squad even further.
Aliens: Dark Descent is available now on PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4, Xbox Series X and Xbox One.
