Alien: Blackout Trailer Released for New Mobile Game

More good news: Amanda Ripley is back.

The fact that a new Alien game is being worked on at the moment is not a secret, and indeed it was first confirmed by 20th Century Fox nearly exactly a year ago today. If you have to have a mobile Alien game, you could do way worse.

Rather than being a sequel to Alien Isolation, it was reported to be a squad-based shooter of some sort. As the Alien hunts you and your crew down you'll have to remotely guide your team using the station's emergency systems, which sounds like this release will contain some strategic gameplay.

Amanda Ripley, Ellen Ripley's daughter and protagonist of Alien: Isolation, is the star.

Now, we 're not averse to mobile games over here at VG247.

" Winterfell is yours, your Grace ", Sansa says somewhat coldly to Daenerys as Jon Snow looks on. Which yes, absolutely includes a literal two seconds on Game Of Thrones' final season.

So what do we have in this mobile Alien game?

There's no word on if this game will cost something upfront, or if it will be a free-to-play title.

The Alien franchise hasn't had the best of luck when it comes to video game adaptations, but that's in the past as one of the more recently released titles Alien: Isolation was received positively by fans and critics alike, and rightfully so. 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 feature seven fear-inducing levels and players will assume the role of Amanda Ripley's crew. It also seems a prime candidate for a low-cost Nintendo Switch port, but FoxNext, D3 Go and Rival Games can cross that blindingly obvious bridge when they come to it. 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. In Blackout, Amanda once again finds herself on a Weyland-Yutani space station infested with aliens and must fight to survive.
