The Alien RPG up for Pre-Order Soon

About a month ago it was revealed that Free League Publishing were going to be producing a new Alien tabletop RPG. Today they revealed that the game will be up for pre-order on their official website on May 25th. As of this writing that will be this Saturday at 9 am EST.

I'm actually a little excited for this game. I imagine it will be pretty short given the nature of the game and the modes that they have planned. The picture they showed of the contents looks fantastic. The book looks really hefty and it includes dice, cards, a map of some sort and a GM screen.

Space is vast, dark, and not your friend. Gamma rays and neutrino bursts erupt from dying stars to cook you alive, black holes tear you apart, and the void itself boils your blood and seizes your brain. Try to scream and no one can hear youhold your breath and you rupture your lungs. Space isn’t as empty as youd think, eitherits frontiers are ever expanding. Rival governments wage a cold war of aggression while greedy corporations vie for valuable resources. Colonists reach for the stars and gamble with their liveseach new world tamed is either feast or famine. And there are things lurking in the shadows of every asteroidthings strange and different and deadly.

Things alien.

This is the official ALIEN tabletop roleplaying gamea universe of body horror and corporate brinkmanship, where synthetic people play god while space truckers and marines serve host to newborn ghoulish creatures. Its a harsh and unforgiving universe and you are nothing if not expendable.

Stay alive if you can.
