AMD and Creative Assembly Collaborate to Deliver the Ultimate "Alien: 
Isolation(TM)" Experience 
Support for 4K UltraHD, AMD Eyefinity Technology and Advanced
DirectX(R) 11 Rendering Effects Bring Beautiful Graphics to a
Haunting World 
SUNNYVALE, CA -- (Marketwired) -- 08/23/14 --  AMD (NYSE: AMD) today
announced a new technology partnership with Creative Assembly,
developer behind the highly-anticipated "Alien: Isolation(TM)."
Developed in conjunction with the AMD Gaming Evolved program, "Alien:
Isolation" is fully optimized for a premium PC gaming experience,
including native support for: AMD Eyefinity technology, 4K UltraHD,
AMD CrossFire(TM) multi-GPU technology, and a wide range of
DirectX(R) 11 effects tuned for the Graphics Core Next architecture
in recent AMD Radeon(TM) GPUs and AMD Accelerated Processing Units. 
"The AMD Gaming Evolved program is committed to making games look
great and run well for all PC gamers," said Ritche Corpus, director
of ISV Gaming and Alliances, AMD. "By working with truly talented
developers like Creative Assembly, we deliver on that commitment with
fun and beautiful games like 'Alien: Isolation,' which give PC gamers
the high-end technology they deserve." 
Players will discover the true meaning of fear in "Alien: Isolation,"
a survival horror set in an atmosphere of constant dread and mortal
danger. Fifteen years after the events of the "Alien(TM)" motion
picture, Ellen Ripley's daughter Amanda enters a desperate battle for
survival, on a mission to unravel the truth behind her mother's
disappearance. As Amanda, players will navigate through an
increasingly volatile world confronted on all sides by a panicked,
desperate population and an unpredictable, ruthless Alien.
Underpowered and underprepared, players must scavenge resources,
improvise solutions and use their wits, not just to succeed in their
mission, but to simply stay alive. 
"'Alien: Isolation' is a game that plunges players into a haunting,
terrifying atmosphere," said Clive Gratton, Lead Programmer, Creative
Assembly. "The visual experience plays such a fundamental role in the
'feel' of the game that we went the extra mile to craft an in-house
engine that fully articulates our vision. AMD has graciously helped
us augment that engine for the PC with a number of effects, such as
contact-hardening shadows, compute-based particles, HDAO and DirectX
11 tessellation. Support for immersion and performance technologies
like AMD Eyefinity and CrossFire technologies make the whole PC
experience even better!" 
Gamers looking to try the rich graphics and terrifying environments
of "Alien: Isolation" for themselves can secure a complimentary copy
by purchasing an eligible AMD Radeon(TM) R9 Series graphics card from
a retailer participating in the new Never Settle: Space Edition
promotion beginning Sept. 2, 2014.
