If you’re planning on ending your week with a trip to Seattle, WA to indulge in the video games extravaganza that is PAX Prime, there are a few things you need to add to your to-do list. At some point you’ll have to make the trek to SEGA’s booth (#232), where they’ll have a giant alien egg pod — the same one that made its debut at Comic Con — for you to climb into for a little personal time with Alien: Isolation. I’ve heard the game is off the charts terrifying, but there’s a chance the pod’s walls will muffle your screams, saving you from public embarrassment.
As if playing Alien: Isolation inside an alien egg pod wasn’t reason enough to warrant a trip to Seattle this weekend, SEGA will be giving away exclusive limited edition Alien jackets in a special “Survive the Demo Competition”. There’s a limited supply, so I recommend you make scoring one a priority — then you can send it to that super underappreciated guy who writes about video games on your favorite horror site. Just an idea.
The other thing I want you to do is make time on Saturday night to attend the party Bethesda is throwing for The Evil Within, where there will be even more opportunities to win
cool stuff, gorge on food and drink, and get your hands on the game’s demo.
PAX kicks off this Friday and ends on Monday, Sept 1. Below you’ll find a picture of that glorious egg pod so you either know what you’re in for or missing out on, and below that is the latest trailer for Alien: Isolation where Amanda Ripley embarks on a ship-wide hunt for an illusive part.
Alien: Isolation hits PC, PS3, PS4, Xbox 360 and Xbox One on October 7.
