While trapped, they get boarded by aliens that take over the ship and begin to kill and eat the colonists.
Playing the role of a tough, gristled ex-military man, gamers will struggle to reach an emergency transport module at the far end of the ship to free the remaining colonists, hacking and slashing their way through hordes of alien creatures along the way.
