Seven Episode ‘Alien: Isolation’ Digital Series Debuts Today on IGN

Yesterday, IGN dropped a huge surprise for fans of the Alien franchise, and more specifically the 2014 game “Alien: Isolation.” The video game news site announced that today, at 9 AM PST they would be releasing an exclusive “Alien: Isolation” seven-part digital series.

According to IGN, the new series from 20th Century Fox will expand on the tale of Amanda Ripley by editing together cutscenes and re-shot first-person scenes from the “Alien: Isolation” game as well as newly rendered scenes, which “creates a new animation experience to add additionally (sic) layers to the story of Ellen Ripley’s daughter.”

“Fifteen years have passed since the deep-space freighter Nostromo disappeared with all hands. And for fifteen years, Amanda Ripley has scoured the known universe for information about her mother, Ellen Ripley, the Nostromo’s warrant officer. When representatives from the Weyland-Yutani Corporation approach Amanda with news that the Nostromo’s flight recorder has finally been found and brought to the space station Sevastopol, Amanda joins the Company’s expedition to the remote outpost. But when Amanda reaches the station, she walks into a living nightmare: Sevastopol’s inhabitants have been terrorized, hunted, and brought to the brink of annihilation. Now she and a band of unprepared – and perhaps untrustworthy – survivors will have to confront the same diabolical species that changed her mother’s fate forever.”

The digital series debut comes on the heels of the release of the mobile game “Alien: Blackout,” which was released in January and also focuses on the character of Amanda Ripley. 2019 also marks the 40th anniversary of the release of the original Alien film.
