Here’s a sneak peek at the upcoming ALIEN tabletop role-playing game that is set in a universe of body horror and corporate brinkmanship, where synthetic people play god while space truckers and marines serve host to newborn ghoulish creatures. It will be an illustrated full-color hardcover book, both presenting the world of ALIEN in the year 2183 and a fast and effective rule set designed specifically to enhance the ALIEN experience. There are two distinct game modes: Cinematic, which is based on pre-made scenarios that emulate the dramatic arc of an ALIEN film and Campaign, made for longer continuous play with the same cast of player characters over many game sessions. Read more for the trailer and additional information.
“The rules of the game is based on the acclaimed Year Zero Engine, used in award-winning games such as Tales from the Loop and Mutant: Year Zero, but adapted and further developed to fully support and enhance the core themes of ALIEN: horror and action in the cold darkness of space,” according to Free League Publishing.
