Alien: Blackout Trailer Released for New Mobile Game

Except that the official Alien Twitter account has started teasing something that stars Amanda Ripley and involves uncovering the secrets "left behind" by the crew of the Nostromo in the original film. Hopefully, one day, we'll get to see a full sequel to the fantastic Alien: Isolation. Bad news: it's a mobile game.

At the very least it should mean you get some sort of closure to Isolation's story.

When we first wrote this article a few years ago, the horror games genre wasn't great. But it does suck a bit that this isn't a proper follow up to the excellent Alien Isolation.

FoxNext Games' studio, Cold Iron Studios, is also now at work on a massively multiplayer online shooter set in the Alien cinematic universe for consoles and PC. "Play. Watch.", which would seem to indicate either the story is going to be told on numerous platforms - as in a book/comic book, and a video game, and a TV show/movie - or it is going to be more interactive for the viewer/player, much like the recent Netflix hit Bandersnatch.

Players will have to outsmart the Xenomorph by making perilous choices and they'll have to rely on the damaged controls of the space station or risk sacrificing crew members to avoid deadly contact, permanently altering the outcome of the game. "Survive seven fear-inducing levels by remotely guiding Amanda Ripley's crew through increasingly challenging tasks using only the station's emergency systems", the game's description reads. "The uncertainty and unpredictability of both the alien and her crew can impose total defeat for Amanda and the entire station". Contending with limited power supply, survival will require players to effectively operate a holographic map, surveillance cameras, and motion trackers to stay hidden and out of the Xenomorph's clutches.

Alien: Blackout will be available on iOS, Android, and on the Amazon Appstore.
