We’ve already seen more than enough to be excessively excited about Alien: Isolation, but some of the team from developer Creative Assembly paid a visit to E3 2014 to show off some new gameplay goodness to help you maintain maximum excitement until the game is released on October 7th.
From the start, one of the big selling points of the game was that it was not your typical run-and-gun Alien game where you’d constantly be firing weapons at attacking Xenomorphs. Instead, the focus was on stealth and survival and avoiding the alien creature at all costs. But that doesn’t mean that Isolation is without combat completely, as you might have thought. In addition to the alien, there’s also other humans and the androids known as Synthetics—some of which will be helpful, others neutral, and some will be hostile, forcing you to defend yourself.
In the gameplay demo brought to E3, you’ll see a bit of the combat and weaponry you’ll have to fight off attackers or possibly try to deter the alien itself, as well as plenty of the stealth options players will be using. You can watch that video as well as a new trailer below.
