After a strong showing at both E3 and Gamescom, Alien: Isolation has become one of 2014’s most anticipated titles. CGI trailers provide a glimpse at the atmospheric setting and heart-pounding tone established by developer Creative Assembly but, thankfully, it’s the gameplay that truly has gaming and Alien fans buzzing. Alien: Isolation hands-on previews have confirmed what many have been hoping – that the Total War studio may have finally delivered a truly satisfying (and horrifying) Alien universe title.

For years, SEGA has touted each installment of the Alien gaming franchise (most recently Aliens vs. Predator and Aliens: Colonial Marines) as a return to gaming glory – a title that would finally match the innovation and excitement of Rebellion Developments’ Aliens Vs. Predator (from 1999). However, each new chapter proved to be an underwhelming addition, thanks to a wide range of problems, unable to tap the potential within the Alien movie and comic book universe. Of course, even if Alien: Isolation does crack the code and deliver an immersive Alien experience, it’s still a game – which means new trophies and achievements to earn!

Ahead of the game’s October release, the full list of Alien: Isolation achievements has been revealed.

Alien Isolation Oculus Demo is Only Prototype

The achievement list provides an interesting mix of challenges for players to complete, pulling from a wide range of game mechanics, and places heavy emphasis on the core story experience. While the main narrative should take gamers around 15 hours to complete, the list points to solid replay value – as players can return to the Sevastopol trading facility to collect computer logs and dog tags as well as tackle overarching goals (“constructed one of each craft able item”) or situational challenges (“escaped from android combat without taking damage”). The game also includes  standard (read: less exciting) objectives that encourage players to test new weapons or mechanics (examples: “used the bolt gun,” “used the vent system 20 times,” “performed 10 successful hacks,” “completed 10 mini games successfully”).

Still, despite a heavy reliance on “Do _ thing x times” achievements, there are also several challenges that will test even the most skilled and dedicated Alien: Isolation players – especially “complete the game without dying,” “completed the game without killing any humans,” and “completed the game on the hardest difficulty setting.” Given what we know about the game’s artificial intelligence, “completed ‘The Quarantine’ without being killed by the Alien” and “contacted your team and escaped Comms without being attacked by an android” should require gamers to both master Isolation‘s mechanics as well as think on their feet.

Alien Isolation Enemies

As mentioned, trade-show previews of the title have been extremely well-received but it’s still unclear if a game that delivers methodical Run. Hide. Survive.” gameplay will be a hit in an industry that is driven by triple-A blockbuster shooting experiences. 30 minutes of slipping into vents and avoiding detection offered an intriguing sampling but does Alien: Isolation  provide enough variety to keep players interested for 15 full hours?

We’ll keep you up to date as further information on Alien: Isolation is unveiled. Until then, Run. Hide. Survive. – or just check out the Alien: Isolation pre-order bonuses.
