Housemarque, responsible for the masterpiece Resogun, has announced it’s newest title at this years Gamescom. Alienation takes players on a co-op adventure in the vain of Dead Nation, but with Aliens … You get it?
What separates the two apart beyond the setting, is the new ‘help your team’ or ‘go rogue’ options it seems to present. This could mix up the gameplay quite a bit, creating an entirely new set of rules for how a game like Dead Nation would’ve been played.
Here is the trailer in its entirety for your viewing pleasure.
I enjoyed Dead Nation, though I felt it didn’t really have enough character or staying power to offer up a rich experience I’d go back to. In other words, it wasn’t Resogun or Super Stardust HD.
Alienation, I hope, will break the mold of Dead Nation and offer us PS4 veterans a chance for some jolly cooperation, or personal gain via betrayal.
