Announced in June last year, Aliens: Dark Descent is a strategic, real-time squad-based tactical action game by Tindalos Interactive and Focus Entertainment, in collaboration with 20th Century Studios. We finally have a release date and it’s not that far away either! We will hit the battlefield on June 20, 2023, on PlayStation, Xbox and PC. Along with the release date announcement, we have also been blessed with the first gameplay video showing what players can expect after their ship crash lands on Planet Lethe.
Players will command a squad as one unit thanks to intuitive controls on both keyboard/mouse and controllers, allowing their Marines to automatically prioritize and execute complex actions in real-time, based on their respective skill sets and the environment around them. Navigate levels strategically, making sure to leverage the persistent and reactive environments to your advantage by sealing off checkpoints, unlocking shortcuts, or creating safe zones. Be cautious and monitor each marines’ vitals – for any who falls in combat, death is permanent.
