Alien: Isolation Wiki

Can we call it "Alien"?[]

I feel using the name "xenomorph" for the Alien is incorrect - it's a broad term used once in the movies to imply a broad range of non-human and likely non-intelligent species that are mostly pests. It's a term unique to the franchise, sure, but especially as the game never uses it I think it's worth just using "the Alien" here.

Basically, while all Aliens are xenomorphs and all xenomorphs are aliens, not all xenomorphs are Aliens.

I'm not entirely sure about this, actually. "The Xenomorph" is how the Alien is typically referred to in the movies/universe lore, whereas the game never really names it anything. If you feel comfortable with the "Alien", then go ahead and make whatever changes need to be made.

Thanks, Sandoval. I'll take a punt.
