Alien: Isolation digital series to be released online today

Alien: Isolation

Just last week we heard that there was a seven episode animated series based on the 2014 video game Alien: Isolation in the works, and as this article is being posted we're only a few hours from being able to watch that entire series.

Alien: Isolation - The Digital Series is set to be released on IGN.com today, February 28th, at 9am Pacific time, noon Eastern. IGN has shared a trailer for the series, and that can be seen below.

This series has the following synopsis:

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.

Anyone who has played the video game will be seeing some familiar sights in this show, as it's partly crafted from a mixture of cinematics that were taken directly from the game and first-person scenes from the game that were re-shot and edited. There are new sights to be seen in here as well, though, as brand new scenes were also created for it.

I never played the game, so this will be all new for me. The goal with this series was to "offer new depth to a story that many gamers would have already experienced in 2014's release, and also tell the story in a newly accessible way for those who haven't."

We'll see how it all turned out when the seven episodes are made available to binge on IGN later today.
