¡¡¡¡Alien 5: Neill Blomkamp¡¯s film suggests that the mythical character played by Sigourney Weaver was going to return.There will be no Alien 5, at least not as it was conceived. The movie has been canceled, as previously announced, but new information about it has just emerged. Thanks to a handful of conceptual arts, the return of Ellen Ripley (Sigourney Weaver) has come to light, as well as that of Hicks (Michael Biehn). This product was to be directed by Neill Blomkamp, but the reality has been quite different.
¡¡¡¡Everything seemed to indicate that Alien 5 was going to serve as a link between the events of the third and fourth movies. Newt and Hicks were scheduled to come back to life, although they are now sentenced to death, unless the project is resumed at some point. After Prometheus and Alien: Coventant, the most recent films to date, Disney + is now preparing a series for its Star platform, of which nothing is known yet.
¡¡¡¡All concept art for Alien 5 is designed by Geoffrey Thoorens, an artist who worked closely with Blomkamp to bring the production to fruition. Part of this material had already been shown previously between 2014 and 2015, but the artist now reveals new images, which you can see in this news.
¡¡¡¡Even though the sequel to Alien Isolation has never crystallized, that doesn¡¯t mean there won¡¯t be more games coming out. Cold Iron Studios and 20th Century Fox recently announced the development of Aliens: Fireteam, a new cooperative action video game that will be released next summer for PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X, Xbox Series S and PC.
¡¡¡¡It is not a survival horror, since this time they have opted for a third-person shooter structure, very focused on team play. Of course, there will be several campaigns with history.

¡¡¡¡There’s a serious narrative powerhouse serving as the?Warhammer 40,000: Darktide?co-writer:?Gaunt’s Ghosts?author Dan Abnett is working with Fatshark to bring the people in the hive city of Tertium to life.
¡¡¡¡Warhammer 40,000: Darktide?is one of the many, many upcoming games in the?Warhammer 40,000?franchise. Notably, this game doesn’t focus on Space Marines or Orks or anything like that ¡ª the playable characters are much more average than you might be used to. A team of four must complete missions for the Inquisition within the hive, facing all sorts of deadly enemies within a massive city that’s the size of an entire country.
¡¡¡¡There is, of course, the question of who will be writing the story for the game. It turns out Fatshark is going to be getting some help from someone with a little experience writing about regular people in a universe filled with superhuman space soldiers, terrifying chaos demons, and all sorts of other horrors: Dan Abnett, New York Times bestselling author and the creator of?Gaunt’s Ghosts.
¡¡¡¡Warhammer 40,000: Darktide?diverges from the typical formula in?40K?games by shifting the focus to a group of less-powerful humans. Dan Abnett is well-equipped to write this style of story thanks to roughly two decades of experience with?Gaunt’s Ghosts.
¡¡¡¡”You¡¯re not immortal, invulnerable[,] or wearing a suit of ceramite power armour. It¡¯s just you and the darkness, and that makes for a really incredible playing experience.” – Warhammer 40,000: Darktide?and?Gaunt’s Ghosts?Writer Dan Abnett
¡¡¡¡If you’ve never heard of?Gaunt’s Ghosts, it’s one of the many pieces of fiction under?Warhammer 40,000’s?”Black Library” label. More than a dozen novels have detailed the exploits of the?Tanith First and Only regiment of the Imperial Guard during the Sabbat Worlds Crusade, although it’s far from the only?40K?franchise focusing on regular people ¡ª there’s also the much more humorous?Ciaphas Cain?books written by Sandy Mitchell. The unique point-of-view of normal humans going up against agents of chaos and other terrors made Dan Abnett the perfect choice for co-writing?Darktide.
¡¡¡¡”In novels, like the Gaunt series, or the Eisenhorn cycle, I¡¯ve chosen the ¡®human¡¯ viewpoint because it¡¯s so rewarding,” Abnett said in a Q&A provided via a press release.?”That¡¯s the case with Darktide too. We want to emphasise the human scale, the human ¡®heart¡¯ in the midst of the vastness and cosmic wonder… and we also want to emphasise the survival and horror aspect. As a human, you¡¯re vulnerable: it¡¯s all about wit, courage, determination[,] and focus. You¡¯re not immortal, invulnerable[,] or wearing a suit of ceramite power armour. It¡¯s just you and the darkness, and that makes for a really incredible playing experience.”
¡¡¡¡Of course, there’s still a lot that we don’t yet know about the game. The team of four players will be assigned missions by the Inquisition ¡ª should they survive, they’ll get access to more missions (and probably some neat new equipment). Beyond that, the overarching narrative of the game and the true terrors of the hive city of Tertium are being kept tightly under wraps.
¡¡¡¡Dan Abnett is sure to cook up an interesting story for the game ¡ª you don’t write dozens of novels without picking up a thing or two in the process. For now, you can add?Warhammer 40,000: Darktide?to your wishlist on Steam and you can learn more about the game at playdarktide.com.
¡¡¡¡Update (06/03/21, 1:42 PM) ¨C It has also been announced that?Warhammer 40,000: Darktide?will be getting an Xbox Game Pass release on launch day.
