In the KS video they say System Shock 2 is one of the influences for this game, but apart from saying that (and showing the game box), I can't see much of RPG elements in it. The "Progressive Role-Playing: As you train your soldier you gain XP that converts into upgradeable skills on your character, weapon and equipment." quote promises some RPG elements, though, but how much that goes beyond gun modification (and such) is anyone's guess.

It looks nice and I dig the KS video (they put a lot of effort into it and I dig the Aliens references a lot too), however, I'm not too sure about the extent of gameplay in it (were it finished). Sure, it might be a great sci-fi FPS if it were the whole deal, but this KS project will only be a "prologue" with the other "chapters" following later, if ever. Too many KS projects backed already, so I'll pass.
