Im very dissapointed. What is it ? Some kind of CoD spinoff...with all those poping numbers, killstreaks and cheesy BADASS kind of things. Where is the atmosphere that should be a huge part of Aliens games. GFX looks like shit as well.

completely agree. That overlay crap doesn't fit AT ALL. It's even more jarring because the environments are so dark. It's distracting. Still interested, but it'll be a no sale if I can't turn that hud off...

Yeah was looking forward to this game.

But not so sure now.

I hate COD with a passion.

Graphics i think were the 360/ps3 versions sadly.

I want survival/puzzle/adventure game in the vain of Telltales Walking Dead set in the Alien universe. Brand new story and setting with new characters.

"It's different. We're approaching this game completely differently to any other first person shooter...something, something...blah blah *farting noise*!"

Yeah, sure you are, four eyes. *looks at footage* Nope. Why are you lying to me?

I agree with that stupid HUD and XP points coming at Your face during gameplay. But still if there is gonna be option to turn that off, it can be really good multiplayer. I would also prefer to have that smart-gun HUD more as a monocle that it would have some blurred edges to feel more like You have only one eye covered. Maybe Im just too much into details. But sounds got much better from the first videos. Anyway....I LOVE THAT HEAD STATUE that guy has behind him. WANT IT!

Okay, so, some guys here don't like how ACM vs. multiplayer looks like. Couldn't care less about it. What's with the Story Mode? Personally, I see no big deal with this video and still I hope the game SM will be decent enough to play it in co-op with my friends.

Well unfortunately... certain game devs only care about money... and gamers only seem to care about CoD which is a type of 1999 era FPS dressed up in last gen graphics so you have so suffer.

Meh , big Alien(s) fan here but that video doesn't make me want to buy it. Looks pretty average to me.

About the game


What's up?

    droezelke @Tiz: It's about not knowing what will be in the lootcrate. That makes it possibly addictive. And EA went for pay-to-win. That is gambling. (4 minutes ago)
  • rayy
    rayy @Tiz: Agree. People want to punish others well implement methods because of EA stupidity. (51 minutes ago)
  • Tiz
    Tiz EA lost their minds and went full greed. $60 buy-in with P2W microtransactions, and an unholy grind? I'm not surprised by the pushback but it's impossible to tar everything with the same brush. (57 minutes ago)
  • Tiz
    Tiz If you don't have the time but want the stuff, then you pay. If you do have the time and want the stuff, then you grind. (59 minutes ago)
  • Tiz
    Tiz I think this whole thing is being blown out of proportion. EA over-stepped with BF2, but the method to unlocking stuff in most games is fine based on a time vs money scenario. (1 Hour ago)
  • droezelke
    droezelke This is a stupid move by ESA. They are now distancing themselves more and more from their customers. They are spitting in their faces. Apparently the signal to EA wasn't clear enough. (1 Hour ago)
  • droezelke
    droezelke And now Australia sees lootboxes as gambling. You know who doesn't? ESA, the entertainment software association which is EA, Activision, Ubisoft, Sony, Nintendo, MS... (1 Hour ago)
