This is how they're making the alien for Alien: Isolation


The Creative Assembly shared a new behind-the-scenes look at Alien: Isolation today, detailing how developers are creating the ever-present Alien threat for its upcoming survival horror title.

In the video above, viewers get a look inside the studio as it builds the entity responsible for the "stealth" element of Isolation. The Alien is what will connect Isolation to the 1979 classic film by Ridley Scott, the base and predecessor for The Creative Assembly's game.

"Terrifying, unstoppable and totally unique, this is an enemy you need to avoid at all costs," the developer noted in a statement accompanying the video. "He's hunting you, using his senses, his instincts, to hunt you down and kill you. He's intelligent, unpredictable and extremely dangerous, and nowhere is safe."

Alien: Isolation will launch later this year for PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, Windows PC, Xbox 360 and Xbox One. Polygon spoke with Isolation's developers earlier this year; check out our impressions of the in-development title in our preview.
