Sega has announced that it will bring Alien: Isolation “without compromise” to mobile devices as part of a bundle that includes the base game and each of its seven additional DLC packs.
As revealed in a press release, the publisher has confirmed that the survival horror game will be released on iOS and Android devices. Fans of the franchise will be able to use the game, which is said to be fully adapted for touchscreen devices, from Jan.
“The stunning AAA graphics, gripping narrative and terrifying atmosphere of the award-winning science fiction masterpiece by Creative Assembly have been faithfully recreated for phones and tablets,” says Sega in his announcement. “This is the complete survival horror experience brought to the phone without compromise.”
According to the publisher, the game will have its own “bespoke, fully customizable user interface” tailored for touchscreen gaming. However, Sega was also interested in pointing out that players would also be able to “customize the game to suit their own style of play,” which essentially leads to the idea that gamepads are supported as well.

Although Alien: Isolation was originally released for PC in 2014, it still seems pretty impressive to bring the game to mobile “without compromise”. However, if the Switch version of the game has something going for it, there is hope of porting it to mobile, with the Switch version gaining special praise when it launches.
