In Aliens: Dark Descent, command a squad of hardened Colonial Marines to stop a terrifying Xenomorph outbreak on Moon Lethe.

You are the commander. They are your weapon.

Tread carefully, as your foes will adapt their tactics to your actions while hunting you down because death is permanent. Forge unique paths for survival, uncovering shortcuts, creating safe zones, and setting up motion trackers in a persistent world where your actions impact levels forever.
Customize your squad with a selection of different classes. Level up and specialize your soldiers with unique abilities and an arsenal of weapons, armor, and perks, for high stakes missions in treacherous territory. Develop your base to research new tech and improve your squad even further.
Manage your resources wisely and take calculated risks to outsmart the deadliest creature mankind has ever faced. Can you and your squad stop the outbreak before it’s too late?

Not sure about that permadeath mechanic... can wounded marines atleast be healed in combat before potentially dying?
Kinda surprised they didn't just do what everyone else is doing and just make it another XCOM clone.
I'm a huge fan of the Alien franchise so I'm definitely going to give this one a shot. Maybe if this game does well they could introduce Predators or even Engineers in a sequel! They've done comics like that and they're really good.
