20th Century Fox has taken cutscenes, and a few sequences from 2014’s Alien: Isolation game to create a new digital series.

This is not exactly something you see every day, but Fox is going to use cinematics from Creative Assembly’s Alien: Isolation as a basis for a new web series.

Revealed by IGN, the digital series will also rely on first-person gameplay sections from the game, shot and re-edited to fit the new format. Beyond that, the team is also creating new scenes exclusive to the series.

The story will be near identical to that of the game, following Amanda Ripley’s search to uncover the truth about what really happened to her mother, Ellen Ripley. For those already familiar with the events of Isolation, the new series should also expand on that fiction and offer more than just retreading of old content.

The seven-episode series will debut today in its entirety on IGN, beginning 9am PT, 10am ET, 5pm UK. It was created by Reverse Engineering Studios, and DVgroup, and you can check out a trailer below.
