Players can complete The Creative Assembly’s upcoming Alien: Isolation without having to kill anyone, according to lead designer Gary Napper.

“You can get through the entire game without killing someone,” he told GamesTM in an interview. “It’s something that was, not so much a challenge, but something I felt was what the character would do. We’re talking about a member of the Ripley family – they’re not like characters in games that gun down civilians because they’re in the way to get to the switch.”

It’s nice to be given the option in a survival horror-esque situation not to have to kill everything/one that bars your way. It offers a sense of realism, because let’s face it, if we were in that situation we wouldn’t go in all guns blazing?well at least I wouldn’t.

Alien: Isolation is set to launch October 7 on PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, Xbox 360, Xbox One, and PC.
