Alien Isolation trailer teaches you not to be trigger happy

Alien Isolation Screen 5

The latest in a series of video shorts exploring how to survive in Alien Isolation reminds us this game isn’t a straight-up FPS

While you’ll be getting guns in Alien Isolation, using them should be seen as a last resort. You will be able to engage in combat with other humans and androids on board the Sevastopo station, but doing so will most likely attract your Xenomorph hunter - resulting in your untimely demise.

Indeed, by design you’ll be able to play through Alien Isolation in its entirety without once killing anything (other than the alien presumably).

Alien Isolation went gold this week and is on track to launch on October 7th for PC, Xbox 360, Xbox One, PS3 and PS4
