Alienation

Housemarque, responsible for the masterpiece Resogun, has announced its newest title at this year’s Gamescom. Alienation takes players on a co-op adventure in the vain of Dead Nation, but with Aliens … You get it?

What separates the two apart beyond the setting, is the new ‘help your team’ or ‘go rogue’ options it seems to present. This could mix up the gameplay quite a bit, creating an entirely new set of rules for how a game like Dead Nation would’ve been played.

Here is the trailer in its entirety for your viewing pleasure.

I enjoyed Dead Nation, though I felt it didn’t really have enough character or staying power to offer up a rich experience I’d go back to. In other words, it wasn’t Resogun or Super Stardust HD.

User experience

According to many about How do you think about Alienation, A_Imme a Reddit user said,

I though it wasn’t going to be my type of game. Boy i was wrong. Already completed the 20 missions once on Rookie, bought the 8€ season pass and started ‘ng+’.

I love the gameplay, visuals (those explosions), loot system and upgrade system…

I think it is way better than resogun, and i love resogun.

tdlr : alienation is a jam. What do yall think?

Varitt, Another user on reddit shared his experience as,

I liked the couch co-op for the first run I did on expert with my wife. The second world tho becomes unbearable. Every single enemy is a sponge and drop rates are not fantastic. I also can’t figure out how to go back to World 1 to farm (if it’s even possible?).

I really liked the game up to that point tho.
