Pending Alien Game Prequel Novel Gets A Cover Image At Last
The game has been announced years ago, changed publishers, and still not had a single image or trailer much less a title. However some movement has happened with the Prequel novel to the game.
Originally set for a Fall 2020 release, the new book now has a cover image and some additional information.
Dr. Timothy Hoenikker arrives on Pala Station, a Weyland-Yutani facility. Lured there by the promise of alien artifacts, instead he finds a warped bureaucracy and staff of misfits testing the effects of Xenomorph bio-materials on living creatures. Unbeknownst to the personnel, however, there is an infiltrator among them whose actions could spell disaster. Also on staff is Victor Rawlings, a former marine who gathers together other veterans to prepare for the worst. As the personnel receive a delivery of alien eggs, the experiments spin out of control, and only the former Colonial Marines can stand between the humans and certain death.
How the novel will fit into the final game has yet to be determined; but the novel is now due on April 20th of 2021 so hopefully the game will follow soon after.
