Alien: Isolation is just around the corner, launching on October 7 for PC, Xbox One, PS4, Xbox 360 and PS3. After playing an Oculus Rift-powered preview of the game, Joystiq Senior Reporter Jessica Conditt described The Creative Assembly's take on the classic franchise as "pants-shittingly awesome." While the final game isn't being built with the Rift in mind, it's the A.I.-driven monster that does the heavy lifting, bringing the classic film series into a growing genre of escape-horror video games.

In a new video preview alongside Jessica, Joystiq Editor-in-chief Ludwig Kietzmann discusses his recent hands-on with the game, a few hurdles he thinks the Sega-published title will have to overcome and the many merits of breath management.
