Alien: Blackout, The Follow-Up To Alien: Isolation Has Officially Been Announced

A New Alien Game Could Be On The Way Brodie Gibbons

If you're looking for something more action-packed from your Alien game, Cold Iron Studios has a shooter of some sort in development. It claims it will bring to life "the terror of alien", which seems unlikely to me not just because it's on mobile, but because it's rated "Teen".

20th Century Fox has started teasing something that sounds very much like a follow-up to Alien Isolation, but what is it exactly?

While her mother was the protagonist of the four main entries in the Alien movie franchise, Amanda's character has been explored primarily through video games, most notably 2014's Alien: Isolation.

Set aboard a Weyland-Yutani space station stalked by one of HR Giger's iconic monsters, Alien: Blackout sees you making choices to outwit the unrelenting Xenomorph, as it hunts you and the vessel's crew.

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.

Now, we 're not averse to mobile games over here at VG247. But it does suck a bit that this isn't a proper follow up to the excellent Alien Isolation.

There's no word on if this game will cost something upfront, or if it will be a free-to-play title. It's coming to iOS and Android and is developed by FoxNext Games, D3 Go!, and Rival Games, as reported by Variety.

Players will be tasked with surviving seven levels by guiding Ripley's crew through "increasingly challenging tasks using only the station's emergency system". 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.

The game will make you use the station's holographic map, along with surveillance cameras and a motion tracker, so you and the crew can navigate through the station and avoid being picked off.
