Behold: Alien Rage Is The Name

Alien Rage is apparently the new name for Alien Fear, although neither game had materialised on my Release Schedule Bioscanner before today. Anyway, it has a trailer which shoes some aliens and some rage. Good thing they dropped that fear malarky, that would have made no sense at all. Anyway, the teaser trailer below makes it look like a game somewhere in the middle of the hilarious/awesome spectrum, so hopefully City will be able to pull off the “arcade FPS” that they are touting.

Go look at it!

The game appears later this year, but has no precise release date at this time.

    Why rage? Why not love. I’m sure that if they tried some alien love they’d prefer it.

    In all honesty, a lot of FPS’s are pretty boring played on your own. However, having a co-op mode will vastly improve it. Any game is good with a friend over and playing on co-op. The story will probably be mediocre at best, but it looks pretty. So, woohoo?

    Is it just me, or does the graphic on the top look like a Plannetside 2 splash?

    • EPICTHEFAIL says:

      Yeah, I automatically read Planetside 2 and got very confused when it turned out it was something else entirely. Chalk it up to everyone ripping off Aliens and Heinlein, I guess.

      • CrispinFister says:

        Looks like another unimaginative yawnfest. GOTY then?

    Ferocious Aliens

  7. Niko says:

    Those aliens look like robots.

    So, bald space marine with minigun fighting bellowing 15-foot robot with jetpack, gun arms, and glorious stage presence. Did anyone else spend the entire trailer thinking “I want to play as the robot”?

  9. MrThingy says:

    “Alien Rage” just makes me think of Marvin the Martian from the Bugs Bunny cartoons.

    “This makes me VERY angry”

  10. Snids says:

    I want to play it, but I just don’t feel the lead character appears heterosexual enough.

  11. Iokanaan says:

    bulky space suits running amok.

  12. soulblur says:

    You are encased in 6 metric tonnes of steel. You can lift a small bus with one hand. Your suit incorporates the most advanced guidance and tracking systems known to humankind. However, we were unable to come up with a solution that would have protected your lower face.

    Sorry about that. Let’s hope they don’t aim for your mouth.

    Staring eyes tag?

  14. Gap Gen says:

    Wait, so now they can be sued by id instead of whoever makes FEAR now?

  15. Shadowcat says:

    So we’re basically dealing with Alien Brian Topp?

  16. grundus says:

    I’m trying to think of a more generic trailer however I don’t think there is one.

  17. Iskariot says:

    It does look nice, but I have become too old to enjoy arcade shooters. I need more refined gameplay, stealth, RPG elements, a good story etc. to truly enjoy myself. I like shooting stuff, but if that is all there is I get bored quickly.

    At least the trailer didn’t have awful brostep, I suppose.
