Final Alien: Isolation dev diary explores creating believable, credible characters

Posted on May 9, 2014 AT 10:45am

The Creative Assembly’s final developer diary for Alien: Isolation explores the studio’s casting decisions made to create credible, grounded characters in the same vein as the original film.

“Much like the original film, this is a credible world filled with believable characters—character we want you to care about,” creative lead Al Hope says in the video.

To this end, The Creative Assembly hired actual actors (none of whom they’ve revealed, yet) and employed full motion capture and capture the digital likeness of the cast to create the most realistic character models they could.

Alien: Isolation will be available on Windows PC, PS4, Xbox One, PS3, and Xbox 360 starting October 7.
