A few days ago the official Alien account on Twitter was teasing some new Amanda Ripley content in 2019 to celebrate the 40th anniversary of the franchise. Fans of the survival-horror Alien: Isolation had hoped that the game was finally going to be receiving a sequel.. and it has of sorts…
Alien: Blackout is “a unique fear-inducing horror” that sounds very similar to Isolation, but adapted for mobile platforms and including some additional features such as decision-based storytelling and you’ll have a crew to keep alive. D3GO have the game listed on their website, accompanied with some more details and our first screenshots, which you can see in the gallery below.
The game is currently listed to be available on the App Store, Google Play, and Amazon Appstore ‘soon’ and we’ll be keeping our eyes out for any more details!
Are you disappointed this isn’t a full-blown sequel? Or are you looking forward to being scared shitless from the comfort of your phone/tablet?
“The terror of Alien is brought to life in Alien: Blackout. Try to stay alive while trapped aboard a crippled Weyland-Yutani space station carrying a deadly Xenomorph as it tirelessly hunts you and the crew. Outsmart the perfect hunter by making perilous choices. Players must 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 uncertainty and unpredictability of both the alien and her crew can impose total defeat for Amanda and the entire station.
