Alien: Isolation was almost a third-person game

We almost got a very different experience

Alien: Isolation is one of the scariest games to release in recent memory, and a lot of that has to do with the first-person camera. You only get so much insight into what's coming at you, and you can't spin the camera around your character to get an early look at what might be hiding around a corner. Turns out we almost had the opportunity to do just that.

The documentary above reveals that during development, Alien: Isolation was a third-person game. Obviously things changed quite a bit between the game's development and final release, giving us the first-person game we all know today. Give the doc a watch and see how it all came together.

Damn that would have taken away from the survival horror feel the game has.
