SEGA has announced that its Alien survival horror game Alien: Isolation will be released on October 7 in the UK. Local dates have not yet been confirmed.

Alien: Isolation is in development at The Creative Assembly, and is coming to Xbox 360, Xbox One, PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, and Windows PC.

Isolation takes place fifteen years after the events of Alien, and sees Ellen Ripley's daughter Amanda, "underpowered and under-prepared", enter a desperate battle for survival as she attempts to unravel the truth behind her mother's disappearance.

As Amanda, players will navigate through an increasingly volatile world and find themselves confronted on all sides by a panicked, desperate population.
