Creative Assembly: Female lead just makes sense for Alien: Isolation

Alien fans probably wouldn't have it any other way

It's not really a design choice that many gamers have been questioning but Creative Assembly has been talking about why they chose a female lead character for Alien: Isolation.

Alien: Isolation's lead designer Gary Napper has explaining that there was no thought that playing as a woman in the game might make players feel more vulnerable it was just that using Ripley's daughter made sense for the story.

"We’ve had people ask stuff like ‘do you feel more vulnerable being a woman in the game?’” Napper said. “…well, anyone in the situation you’re in aboard the Sevastopol is going to be vulnerable. I don’t think it matters what gender you are in the game, really, but Ripley suits our game." Creative Assembly: Female lead just makes sense for Alien: Isolation

Alien: Isolation is due out on PC, PS4, PS3, Xbox One and Xbox 360 on October the 7th world wide.
