Sega Is Somehow Bringing Alien: Isolation to Mobile 'Without Compromise'

Sega has announced that it is bringing Alien: Isolation to mobile devices "without compromise" as part of a package that will include 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 launching on iOS and Android devices. Fans of the franchise will be able to pick up the game, which is said to have been fully adapted for touchscreen devices, at a price of $14.99/£12.99 from December 16.

"The stunning AAA visuals, arresting narrative and terrifying atmosphere of Creative Assembly’s award-winning sci-fi masterpiece have been faithfully replicated for phones and tablets," says Sega in its announcement. "This is the complete survival horror experience brought to mobile without compromise."

According to the publisher, the game will have its own "bespoke, fully customizable interface" tailored toward touchscreen play. That being said, Sega was also keen to point out that players would also be able to "fine tune the game to their own playing style" which essentially translates to the notion that gamepads will also be supported.

Despite Alien: Isolation originally having released for PC back in 2014, bringing the game to mobile "without compromise" still seems relatively impressive. That being said, if the Switch version of the game is anything to go by, then there's solid hope for a port on mobile, with the Switch version's visuals in particular lauded upon release.
