Alien Isolation Mod Adds More Aliens
Alien: Isolation is the best Alien game ever with a massive atmospheric space station, a few humans and androids, and one very deadly Alien hunting you from start to finish. With all that said, after the first movie the problem of a sequel came up, and, as urban legend has it, James Cameron’s solution was to go to the ideas board and simply add an “s” to “Alien”.
Aliens: Isolation mod, by modder Zyr0511, is a package of mods that does the same thing. It aims to make the game even more terrifying and difficult than it already is, as well as adding visuals and AI mods that further enhance the pant-wetting potential. It has three ways to play, which seem to range from “very deadly” to “you’re gonna die chum”.
The lite setting only adds 2-3 more aliens. The standard setting adds 2-5 more aliens with enhanced senses, which now spawn in rare zones, search for you in ducts, and follow you more effectively when you flee, with the only saving grace being you can make them retreat with gunfire.
Now let’s talk about the nightmare mode, obviously, which increases the alien AI to its maximum level, adds 2-5 at any given time, further amps up the xenomorphs’ senses, makes them generally react faster and able to stalk you more effectively, and they do greater damage. Most amazingly, this mode adds an even bigger threat than the aliens: the working joe androids can now run and, per the notes, “Alerting them will be worse than facing 5 aliens”.
