  • Dev Prefers PS4 Version of Alien: Isolation For Immersive Experience Because DualShock 4 Acts As Motion Tracker

    Creative Assembly has made their preference pretty clear which version of "Alien: Isolation" they favor the most, Playstation 4 or Xbox One? As expected its Playstation 4 port but not for resolution/FPS, but for a very interesting reason, the working of PS4's Dualshock 4 controller.

    Creative Assembly's Gary Napper states that DualShock 4 controller will act like a motion tracker in Alien: Isolation. Speaking to our friend at NowGamer, Napper said:

    "My favourite version is the PS4 version – and I say that as a massive Microsoft fan – so to say the PS4 version is my favourite feels a bit weird,"

    "The reason is – and it’s so minor – but we’ve made the DS4 to act like the motion tracker, so it lights up along with the radar blips and if the alien’s close-by it goes off quicker

    "It adds so much immersion, when it’s all dark and your legs are lit up in your peripheral vision."

    Napper further explained that on first testing it felt just more than a good gimmick but "it genuinely is a very good feature".

    Napper finally clarified that development team at Creative Assembly has something specific in development for each of the platforms, but seems like immersive Alien: Isolation experience will be offered only on Playstation 4.
