Synopsis: The action-packed official adaptation of Alien: Isolation and a revealing look into the lives of Ellen Ripley and her daughter, Amanda Ripley.
THE OFFICIAL VIDEO GAME ADAPTATION--AND MUCH MORE!
From birth, Amanda Ripley's life is riddled with hardship. Her parents live on the edge of poverty, so her mother--Ellen Ripley--seeks off-world contracts that lead to a position aboard the commercial hauler Nostromo. Then when the deep-space vessel disappears, Amanda passes into adulthood focused on discovering one thing.
WHAT HAPPENED TO ELLEN RIPLEY?
Amanda's quest pulls her into the underbelly of society, where few can be trusted. On Luna she meets someone who seems the exception--Private Zula Hendricks of the Colonial Marines but their relationship is short-lived. Just as Amanda appears to hit rock bottom... a lead appears.
To follow it, she must travel to the remote Sevastopol Station. There she hopes to find the answers she seeks. But the station is in ruins, and death stalks the corridors in the form of a deadly alien the likes of which she never could have imagined.
