Posted on January 7, 2014 AT 08:08am

A listing for Alien: Isolation has appeared on the Xbox Games Store, confirming Ellen Ripley’s daughter, Amanda, as the lead character.

The Creative Assembly is still yet to officially announce any details about the game, but this listing includes all the plot details that you could need. “Discover the true meaning of fear in Alien: Isolation, a survival horror set in an atmosphere of constant dread and mortal danger,” the listing reads.

“Fifteen years after the events of Alien, Ellen Ripley’s daughter, Amanda enters a desperate battle for survival, on a mission to unravel the truth behind her mother’s disappearance.

“As Amanda, you will navigate through an increasingly volatile world as you find yourself confronted on all sides by a panicked, desperate population and an unpredictable, ruthless Alien. Underpowered and underprepared, you must scavenge resources, improvise solutions and use your wits, not just to succeed in your mission, but to simply stay alive.”

The listing also states that the game supports co-op play for up to four players, but there were no further details on this.

The Creative Assembly announced that it was working on an Aliens game back in 2011. It was set to be officially unveiled at E3 last year, but, according to rumors, it was pushed back following the poor performance of Alien: Colonial Marines. Over the past few months artwork and screenshots for the game have appeared online.

Update: Sega has now officially announced Alien: Isolation. Confirming that the game will be available on Xbox 360, Xbox One, PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, and PC in late 2014. You can check out a debut trailer below.
