Welcome To The Jungle!
After narrowly surviving a crash landing, Amanda Ripley and Zula Hendricks find themselves on an unknown moon overrun with jungle. Stepping to investigate the smouldering remains of the Gaspar shuttle, the duo arm up and prepare for whatever is coming next.
Exploring their surroundings, Zula and Amanda head deep into the brush. Guns at the ready, the duo soon find themselves encountering one of the few colonists to survive the shuttle crash - however, the young boy flees deeper into the jungle before the ladies can question him.
Suddenly, and without warning, a vicious Xenomorph attacks from the long grass. Gunning the monster down, Amanda and Zula realize this moon is most likely being used for some off the books experimentation care of the Wayland-Yutani Corporation. The theory is soon proven when a mysterious pair of heavily armored synthetics emerge to collect the creature's remains.
That night, Zula and Amanda contact Davis, who assures them that this game has just become that much more dangerous - however, he has a plan to cripple the corporation once and for all.
