Tomas Härenstam, Free League's co-founder and lead designer of the ALIEN RPG, will head the project, Joe LeFavi will provide setting material, and ALIEN artist Martin Grip lead the art.
Francesco Nepitello will be making changes to the rules. The game will not use the Year Zero engine.
Harenstam says that Mutant Year Zero is a top-selling game and so we can imagine that it'll be high on the list for the Roll20 treatment.
Free League will now publish the 4th edition but have said they will go back to the roots of the game, with some changes, including providing a boxed set.
Is the Alien RPG purely about staying alive?
