Get ready for another bug hunt. During this year’s edition of Summer Game Fest, Focus Entertainment and developer Tindalos Interactive have announced Aliens: Dark Descent, a new action-adventure RTS which heads to PC via Steam and consoles in 2023.

Aliens: Dark Descent is an enthralling single player squad-based action game set within the iconic Alien franchise for PS5, PS4, Xbox Series, Xbox One and PC.

Aliens: Dark Descent sees you command a squad of hardened Colonial Marines to stop a terrifying Xenomorph outbreak on Moon Lethe. Lead your soldiers in real-time combat against the Xenomorphs, rogue operatives from the insatiable Weyland-Yutani Corporation, and a host of horrifying creatures new to the Alien franchise. You’ll also be able to 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 to research new tech and improve your squad even further.

“We are honored to partner with 20th Century Studio and Disney to work on a new project from this emblematic franchise, and to team up with our excellent partners at Tindalos Interactive. Their expertise, talent and passion for the license will make Aliens: Dark Descent an iconic new chapter in the Alien series,” said John Bert, Managing Director at Focus Entertainment.

“The entire team at Tindalos is dedicated to delivering a gaming experience faithful to the spirit of the Alien franchise, and adding its own, never-seen-before elements to this iconic universe. The gameplay we have developed is unique, inspired from our favorite tactical and CRPG games and packaged in nerve-wracking, real-time action. Translating from film to our game the sheer terror caused by the deadliest species known to man was quite a challenge, but I’m confident most of you will end up in strung-out shape – as Hicks himself would say,” said Romain Clavier, CEO & Creative Director at Tindalos Interactive.

“We’re excited to continue expanding upon the beloved Alien franchise with a deeper single-player story experience thanks to the bright minds from our friends at Focus and Tindalos,” said Luigi Priore, vice president at Disney, Pixar & 20th Games. “Fans of the franchise should be excited to jump into a new genre experience and a new tactically thrilling gameplay offering unlike any of our previous Alien game titles”.
