ALIEN: THE COLD FORGE IS SCHEDULED TO BE RELEASED 24TH APRIL 2018
- ALIEN: THE COLD FORGE by Alex White PRODUCT DETAILS ISBN: 9781785651939Dimensions: 198 x 130 mm Trade Paperback: 416pp Publication date: 24 April 2018All authors: Alex White
According to White’s literary agent Connor Goldsmith, THE COLD FORGE is about Blue Marsalis, a scientist with ALS who hopes experiments on xenomorphs will lead to a cure. It goes… not well. With test subjects gone rogue and a Weyland-Yutani mercenary sent to kill her, her only defence is a robot she controls remotely with her mind. It’s a tense psychological thriller with two compelling, morally complex leads (Blue and the hitman).
SYNOPSIS With the failure of the Hadley’s Hope, Weyland-Yutani has suffered a devastating defeat—the loss of the Aliens. Yet there’s a reason the company rose to the top, and they have a redundancy already in place. Remote station RB-323 abruptly becomes their greatest hope for weaponizing the Xenomorph, but there’s a spy aboard—someone who doesn’t necessarily act in the company’s best interests. If discovered, this person may have no choice but to destroy RB-323… and everyone on board. That is if the Xenomorphs don’t do the job first.
ALIENS: DUST TO DUST 25th April

The Trono colony on LV-871 is under attack. Emergency evacuations are ordered. Evac shuttles are taking off. All twelve-year-old Maxon and his mom have to do is make it to the spaceport. Except between them and it are . . . Aliens!
When talking to CBR.com Gabriel explained, “I was actually inspired to tell the story from the point of view of a 12-year-old boy in large part because that’s the age I was when first exposed to Aliens, I didn’t want to write about Marines or anyone who seems like they could stand up to the xenomorphs. Kids lack power — they lack agency. I wanted to throw this boy into extraordinarily scary and difficult circumstances and force him to navigate it. And not tell it from the parent’s perspective, but the kid’s.”

SOMETHING IS COMING THIS ALIEN DAY 26.04.2018
Concept Artists Dane Hallett & Matt Hatton have dropped teasers for the much anticipated Alien Day. In Australia, the date is written Day.Month.Year which is why the date varies from 4/26.
7 months ago Dane asked if anyone would be interested in an art book full of organisms, with a resounding yes and some months past, I suspect there will be some sort of concept art book to be released.
Even during Easter weekend, Matt Hatton got in on the teasers as well, to my delight.

(Easter) Egg! – I always thought the egg teaser we did should have been done as an Easter thing rather than Christmas as they did. I mean perfect “synergy”! 😉 #alien #alienegg #aliencovenant #matthatton @matthatt0n @dane_hallett_art #conceptart #illustration #somethingiscoming
ALIEN GAME NEWS
Fox Next Games is expected to release news on their Online Alien Shooter, but Cold Iron Studios had only been given the task of creating the game earlier this year according to Venture Beat.
In my experience, it will take much longer for a well structured and detailed game to be created, depending on the scope of Fox Next Games and Cold Iron Studios vision.
With veterans from the gaming industry with experience from games such as Metroid Prime 3 and Bio Shock Infinite, there is much anticipation this Alien Day for some news.
FoxNext Games president Aaron Loeb had said in a statement. “I am a personal fan of Cold Iron’s previous work and all of us at FoxNext Games are thrilled to be working with them as they create an action-packed persistent world, steeped in the mysteries of this beloved Alien universe.”
