Most media outlets haven’t even been given a chance to try Alien: Isolation yet, but Sega are giving YOU the chance to play the game at the EGX Rezzed event at Birmingham NEC on the 28th-30th March.
Sega seem keen to show gamers the game first-hand with no smoke and mirrors after the utter farce that was the finished product of Aliens: Colonial Marines. So why not head on down? Tickets are available at the event’s site here from as little as £9. The game will be playable on PS4, Xbox One and PC platforms. Creative Assembly’s survival horror approach certainly has us interested, but we’re cautious as to whether they can maintain it throughout a whole game against just one alien. That said, we’ve been hearing rumours of androids being used as gun-fodder in-between all the hiding in cupboards.
If you are thinking of heading down, you should know that Rezzed is more of an indie/PC game expo compared to the traditional Eurogamer event. No other playable console titles are confirmed at the moment, but you can keep updated with what’s on here. We’re sending Carl in to investigate Alien: Isolation and the indie hits of the future, so expect a report from him soon after. But if you’re midlands-based, you should consider going too, you might even get to meet Toby the dealspwny.
