Aliens: Dark Descent Unleashes Chilling Story Trailer

Are you ready to face the Xenomorph outbreak?

Aliens: Dark Descent just dropped a terrifying trailer for the upcoming squad-based strategy game set to release on June 20, 2023. 

If you are a fan of the XCOM series of games and love horror/sci-fi, then the upcoming Aliens: Dark Descent is a title you should consider getting. Developed by Tindalos Interactive and published by Focus Entertainment, the forthcoming Aliens game is a squad-based strategy game where a group of Colonial Marines attempts to stop a ravenous Xenomorph outbreak on the Planet of Lethe.

The two-minute trailer reveals more about the narrative in the upcoming strategy title. In the game, you play Administrator Hayes as she attempts to uncover the truth behind the mysterious destruction of a mining colony and all its citizens. 

According to a recent update, the story is as follows: 

The nightmare begins when the Otago spacecraft crash lands on Moon Lethe. The crew of Colonial Marines investigates the Xenomorph outbreak that activated the Cerberus Protocol—the planetary lockdown that is keeping them stranded. The player is their squad commander, leading them through a nerve-wracking experience 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 set the plot in motion, notably Maeko Hayes, Deputy Administrator at Lethe’s Pioneer Station; Jonas Harper, Sergeant for the US Colonial Marines; and Barbara Pryce, Colony Director for the Weyland-Yutani.

In typical Aliens fashion, it also appears like there will be a few rebellious androids that throw a wrench in things. Aliens: Dark Descent will be released on June 20, 2023, for PC, Xbox One, Xbox X|S, PS4, and PS5. 

Pre-orders are available on the official Aliens: Dark Descent website
