Aliens: Crucible: Mass Effect, But More Horrifying! [VIDEO]

The name might not be that familiar to you!

Chris Avellone, who previously worked for Obsidian (where he wrote Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic II’s story – he recently discussed what the ideas were for a third game), told VG247 that Obsidian had an Alien game in development called Aliens: Crucible. „It would be like–this is going to be really rough comparison–basically Mass Effect but more terrifying. We wanted to make it. But by that point Sega, I think, was… the publisher/management relations had gotten to a point where they were just tired of dealing with [Obsidian]. Everyone working on Aliens: Crucible was really excited about it. It was shaping up to be a really cool game. The prototype was really cool. But then Sega’s like, “Nope!’

You can make conversations stressful and frightening. How do you do it so that an alien could be attacking you at any moment? You can’t take shelter in a conversation with two talking heads while you try to figure out what to do,” Avellone said. You can see a video of Aliens: Crucible below. Too bad it never got completed.

Wait, Aliens: Crucible? It was announced in 2006 when SEGA acquired the SEGA license. Its official confirmation came in 2008 for PlayStation 3, Xbox One, and PC, but it got cancelled a year later. In 2013, Aliens: Colonial Marines came, which was sh_t, followed by Alien: Isolation in 2014, which was outstanding. The latter game could have had a sequel – Creative Assembly had ideas -, but it’s not sure if it ever will materialise…

What now? There’s Alien: Blackout with Amanda Ripley – it came out in January on iOS and Android (!?), and Cold Iron Studios, which was formed in 2015, with employees who previously worked Neverwinter, Star Trek Online, City of Heroes, BioShock Infinite, Borderlands, Doom, and Metroid Prime 3, is making a new shooter for consoles and PC…
