Ravensburger is working on publishing a new ALIEN board game later this year. Fate Of The Nostromo will have one-to-five players experiencing the intense moments of the first Sci-Fi film as you work together to evade the xenomorph!

During gameplay, you'll take on the role of crew members like Ripely, Lambert, Parker, Brett or Dalla and sneak around the board looking to collect items that could help you whilst also completing different objectives. As you encounter the titular Alien you'll either lose or gain morale based on how it turns out and if crew morale reaches zero then it's all over!

Each crew member comes with an array of special abilities which can be used to help the rest of the crew. As an example, Brett can craft items with fewer items thanks to his engineering know-how. The Crew Action phase allows the players to prepare but the Encounter phase could spell doom as you resolve cards and watch out for the deadly xenomorph.

Once you've completed your objectives you'll face one of five final missions which each have unique requirements in order to complete. To add even more of a twist, you can also introduce Ash into the mix who moves around the ship removing scrap, getting in your way and forcing you to lose morale too.

I like that the game has a good variety in player count and that it can reach its finale in five different ways leading to more replayability. This means that you should be able to tinker around with different crew members and more in order to try and beat the game each time you sit down to play.

I will certainly keep an eye out for gameplay on this one!
