This week it's become clear that the next Alien franchise game will be not only a multi-console, multi-tiered release, it'll also be as much the terror-infused survival game as the original Alien movie made us wish for. Of course we've got a long way to go before the game actually hits stores, but for now it's looking like the controversial inclusion of Ellen Ripley's daughter in the script is taking a back seat to the idea that this will be everything but a straight-up translation of Alien to a first-person game.

This publishing will be done through Microsoft's ID@Xbox program and the game will be released sometime inside 2014. The same is true for the PlayStation 4 version of this Worms title, both titles coming from the developers at Team 17.
