A prototype of Alien Resurrection from October 19, 1998.


The Cutting Room Floor research
  • Title screen differs from final.
    • No background image or build date, this build simply just says "Press Start". An E3 screen loads in the VRAM, but is never displayed.
  • This prototype uses a third person view, very similar to Tomb Raider. Prototypes past the December 1998 build use a 3/4 top down third person view instead.
  • The HUD differs from final, and differs from later 1998 builds too. The top right where the weapon displayed is incorrect here, while it is corrected in later builds.
  • Only levels 7 and 8 are playable. Level 6 does load, but you're placed too far from the level to play it.
  • Controls differ from final, they are as follows:
    • Triangle - Jump
    • X - Shoot
    • Circle - Shoot backwards
    • L1 - Switch between running and walking.
    • L2 - Locks player in spot to spin freely.
    • R2 - Locks camera at an angle.
  • Level 8 is a swimming test level. Pressing L2 and R2 will activate the swimming mode.
