This Xenomorph is crossing her fingers (offscreen) because she’s not sure if Alien: Isolation would be good.

You’re probably hoping that Alien: Isolation would be the great Alien game that Aliens: Colonial Marines never was. However, we’ll never know this for sure until the game is actually released. Fortunately, the wait isn’t too far off: according to developer Creative Assembly, Alien: Isolation has gone gold.

Not only that–Creative Assembly has also revealed the system requirements for Alien: Isolation on the PC. They are as follows:

Minimum PC Specifications:

  • Operating System: Windows 7 (32bit)
  • Processor: 3.16Ghz Intel Core 2 Duo E8500
  • RAM: 4GB RAM
  • Hard Drive: 35GB required for installation
  • Video Card: 1GB DirectX 11 (AMD Radeon HD 5550 or Nvidia GeForce GT 430)
  • Broadband Internet Connection

Recommended PC Specifications:

  • Operating System: Windows 7 (64bit)
  • Processor: AMD: Phenom II X4 955 – 4 Core, 3.2 GHz or INTEL: Core 2 Quad Q9650 – 4 Core, 3.0 Ghz
  • RAM: 8GB RAM
  • Hard Drive: 35GB required for installation
  • Video Card: 2GB DirectX 11 (AMD GPU: AMD Radeon R9 200 Series or Nvidia gpu: GeForce GTX660)
  • Broadband Internet Connection

On a personal note, I’m still on the fence with Alien: Isolation. Sure, it looked promising in the gamut of previews available online, but let’s not forget that Creative Assembly specialises in strategy, not survival horror.

As listed in our 2014 release dates page, Alien: Isolation is set to be released on October 7, 2014.
