‘Alien: Blackout’ is a Survival Horror Mobile Game Starring Amanda Ripley

Alien Isolation 20th Century Fox tease a new Alien game that may actually be an interactive movie like Bandersnatch

After the excellent Alien: Isolation, we got rather excited for a potential sequel in the shape of the rumoured Alien: Blackout, but it seems that game won't be coming to console.

Amanda was also the central character in the critically acclaimed survival horror game Alien: Isolation, which was released in 2014 for PCs and consoles by Sega. This is the new Alien project that was trademarked late a year ago, so don't expect a console announcement anytime soon.

From what I understand, the game takes between the events of Alien and Aliens, just like Alien: Isolation did. One teaser asked, "Who is Amanda Ripley?" stating that "her story deserves to be told".

In Alien: Blackout, players assume the role of Amanda Ripley, trapped aboard a crippled Weyland-Yutani space station carrying a blood-thirsty creature. Lurking in the shadows is the haunting Xenomorph that hunts you down as you try to outsmart it by making choices that can change the outcome.

First 'Game of Thrones' final season footage arrives in HBO teaser
The two character's meet and greet is the first time they have shared the screen space together since show premiered in 2011. The group has finally reached Winterfell and it's clear that Sansa swears (coldly?) allegiance to the dragon queen.

Alien: Blackout is a unique fear-inducing horror premium mobile game experience that will test the inner nerves of both Alien and horror fans alike, where life can end in an instant. Players have to guide these crew members through the Weyland-Yutani space station while avoiding the Xenomorphs that he Alien series is known for. That sounds very much like the surveillance-camera spook-em-up Five Nights At Freddy's, and based on the trailer, it looks like it too, albeit with a mobile-AAA paint job.

So we'll have to wait for more details of the game to be released.

While I'm always willing to give something a shot, seeing an incredibly atmospheric concept like this (especially after the fantastic Isolation already proved the idea works) on a mobile device is troubling. So here's hoping Alien: Blackout's developers will deliver a quality Alien game on Android.

For more info on the game, check out the game's website.
