Alien: Isolation pre-release footage released, features unused third person view

Games change during development, even change after media journalists have gotten a good look at the game. Creative Assembly’s Alien: Isolation is no different. The footage above shows what could have been Alien: Isolation before they changed it to first person prospective.

Personally think they did the right move making it first person due to the nature of using melee combat and I hate using melee combat in 3rd person shooters (see: Gears of War, Binary Domain and Uncharted series).

So what do you think?

    I think the change from first person was better more due to how it impacts the atmosphere, as it makes it easier to stand in the character’s shoes. Besides that, a third person camera makes it easier to see the Alien coming, which would make it less scary.
