Sega has confirmed via IGN that Alien: Isolation has gone gold ahead of its October 7th release date. This means that development has wrapped on the game and discs can begin being produced soon. To celebrate this major step toward release Sega unveiled a new trailer titled “No Escape”, which shows off more gameplay footage of the survival-horror game.
You’ll be able to explore the world of Alien: Isolation for yourself and survive the horror awaiting you.
Alien: Isolation picks up after the events of Ridley Scott’s 1979 classic. You will play as Amanda Ripley, daughter of series star Ellen Ripley, as she searches for answers about what happened on the Nostromo. Unlike most games in the Alien franchise, Isolation is based on the original film. There won’t be space marines or a swarm of Alien creatures in this game. Instead you will play through a survival scenario where you are being hunted by a single Alien who seemingly cannot be killed with what little supplies you have at your disposal.
Pre-orders for Alien: Isolation will automatically be upgraded to the Nostromo Edition, which features DLC that reunites the film’s original cast. Gamestop is offering an extra piece of DLC with their pre-orders, which will let you replay one of the original film’s most iconic scenes. Both pieces of content will become available some time after launch for those who do not wish to pre-order.

From everything that I have seen and played of the game it is shaping up to be a true return to form for the survival-horror genre.
Alien: Isolation will be released on October 7th for PS3, PS4, Xbox 360, Xbox One, and PC.
