The Terrifying Sounds of Alien: Isolation

By Marc Caccamise, 2 years ago
When thinking of what a good survival-horror game entails, a key aspect that you want to see come to fruition is the creation of a terrifying atmosphere. Alien: Isolation has already shown off some creepy, dark corridors that players will have to traverse while avoiding the lurking Xenomorph, but the game has to sound as good as it looks to bring the whole package full circle.

In the latest developer diary, members of Creative Assembly discuss the process the team is taking with the creation of the game's audio. From unearthing original sound recordings of the first film, to finding methods to mimic that authenticity, the ultimate goal of the team is to have the game sound as close to the original film as possible. From the look of things, they're doing a good job of it so far.



Alien: Isolation is set to release on both the Xbox One and Xbox 360 on October 7th.
