Alien: Blackout Trailer

It is not the shooter announced in Jan. 2018 but Alien: Blackout looks like a mobile game worth trying.

FoxNext Games and D3 Go! today revealed a new chapter in the Alien franchise:
Alien: Blackout, a premium survival horror mobile game developed by Rival
Games and Theory Interactive that picks up the saga of Amanda Ripley
between the films Alien and Aliens.

In Alien: Blackout, players assume the role of Amanda Ripley, trapped
aboard a crippled Weyland-Yutani space station carrying a blood-thirsty
creature. Players will need to survive increasingly challenging,
fear-inducing levels by balancing the controls of the space station’s
emergency systems to skillfully guide their crew to safety and avoid
encounters with the enemy. The unpredictability of both the mysterious
alien and the ultimate fate of the crew will force players to make life or
death decisions that permanently alter the outcome of the game.

Coming to mobile devices later this month, Alien fans can be the first to
pre-register for Alien: Blackout on the App Store
<> and Google
The game will also be available on the Amazon Appstore at launch.

This year, fans of the critically-acclaimed Alien: Isolation video game are
invited to embark on new adventures with Ellen Ripley’s daughter, Amanda,
by watching, playing, and reading her story as she renews her fight against
the aliens after the events of Isolation. 20th Century Fox will partner
with a wide range of storytellers and innovators to bring this epic chapter
in the Alien Universe to life, with even more entries in Amanda Ripley’s
story soon to be announced.

FoxNext Games’ studio, Cold Iron Studios, is also currently at work on a
massively multiplayer online shooter set in the Alien cinematic universe
for consoles and PC.
