Now, we 're not averse to mobile games over here at VG247. Amanda finds her self on yet another Weyland-Yutani space station, with yet another Xenomorph chasing after her and the crew (or what's left of them). For example, you'll have the decision to sacrifice other crew members in order to save Ripley, ultimately altering the outcome of the game.
FoxNext Games and D3 Go! have revealed a new chapter in the Alien franchise: Alien: Blackout, a premium survival horror mobile game developed by Rival Games and Theory Interactive that picks up the saga of Amanda Ripley between the films Alien and Aliens. Plus, Fox plans to tell more of Amanda Ripley's story across multiple mediums throughout 2019.
So far, there is no word on an official release date or pricing for Alien: Blackout. Isolation, you'll need to "outsmart the ideal hunter by making perilous choices", shepherding the surviving crew to safety. "Play. Watch." The tease led many to hope a new Alien game was on the way, though it's likely this isn't what they had in mind.More news: Chelsea frustrated as Gunn shines in stalemate
At the very least it should mean you get some sort of closure to Isolation's story.
There's seven levels to tackle, and you'll have to make use of the limited power supply of the station to manipulate various bits and bobs, such as a cameras, a holographic map and motion trackers.
The game also pays unexpected homage to Alien, the 1984 game for the Amstrad CPC, Commodore 64, and ZX Spectrum (the second-ever licensed game from the franchise, after 1982's glorified Pac-Man clone).
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. As Amanda, players must use a space station's damaged systems to guide her crewmates while avoiding the alien.
