In Aliens: Dark Descent, players take on real-time combat against iconic Xenomorphs and brand-new threats. Using a range of tactical abilities, you’ll recruit, level up and command a squad of Colonial Marines as one unit with intuitive controls on keyboard and mouse, as well as on controller. Players will need to use their wits to navigate expansive, persistent and reactive levels where death is permanent.

Prepare for a terrifying original Alien tale

This thrilling gameplay takes place across a heart-pounding cinematic campaign full of horrors, wonders and sinister secrets befitting an authentic Alien narrative. The nightmare begins when the Otago spacecraft crash lands on Planet Lethe after a Xenomorph escapes containment, causing the activation of the Cerberus Protocol — a planetary lockdown preventing all ships from leaving or landing on the planet.

Aliens: Dark Descent’s original campaign will pit players 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 sets the plot in motion, including Maeko Hayes, Deputy Administrator at Lethe’s Pioneer Station; Jonas Harper, Sergeant for the US Colonial Marines; and Barbara Pryce, Colony Director for Weyland-Yutani.​
