Aliens: Dark Descent is a strategy game set in the iconic Alien universe. You will travel to planet Lethe to stop a Xenomorph outbreak. As a Colonial Marines squad commander, you will lead your troops against horrifying enemies, including Weyland-Yutani agents and different forms of the iconic Xenomorphs.
You will assemble a team of marines, choosing from different classes, so your squad can fit your playing style. You will explore vast levels and engage in real-time battles against the deadliest predator in the known universe. In Aliens: Dark Descent, your squad will have to face Facehuggers, Pretorians, and the horrifying Alien Queens, as well as some original enemies.
Between missions, you can upgrade your base and equip troops with new abilities and weapons. Do it wisely to increase your squad members' chances of survival, as the game features a permadeath mechanic. Hence, if some of your marines die on a mission, they are gone for good. Moreover, your enemies will learn your tactics, so you mustn't be too predictable and change your patterns regularly to survive your mission on Lethe.
Aliens: Dark Descent was developed by Tindalos Interactive, while Focus Entertainment serves as the publisher. The game's release date was set for June 20, 2023.
