Aliens: Dark Descent is a squad-based, real-time tactical action game set in the iconic Alien universe, and it's coming to PS5 and PS4 on 20th June. We got our best look yet at the game in action courtesy of IGN's First preview coverage.

Dark Descent puts us in mind of XCOM but removes the illusion of safety offered by that game's turn-based combat; the xenomorphs we see here are certainly not interested in patiently waiting for their chance to move. The sound design is near pitch-perfect, as is the tension, and we will be watching this one with great interest as the release draws near.
