Blackout announced — Survival horror Alien

Blackout announced — Survival horror Alien

Alien: Blackout is an entirely different thing, though, and it's out on iOS and Android later this year.

Blackout puts some new spins on the familiar first-person horror of Isolation. Make a bad call and their deaths will affect the course of your seven-mission campaign.

From what I understand, the game takes between the events of Alien and Aliens, just like Alien: Isolation did.

In the game, players need to guide their crew to safety and avoid encounters with the alien.

Amanda's still wearing her USCSS Torrens crew uniform in one of the screenshots for Blackout, so she's likely fresh off the Sevastopol when the story begins.

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. 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).

Cowboys rally past Seattle, Colts top Texans in playoffs
It was just the third playoff victory for the Cowboys this century, after they won wild-card round games in 2009 and 2014. If the Eagles beat the Bears, the Cowboys will visit the Los Angeles Rams next Saturday.

Even if this wasn't quite what I had in mind for my next adventure as the daughter of Ripley, I'm interested to see what Blackout has to offer.

The trailer and screenshots are fairly vague but do give us an idea of what we can expect from the game.

20th Century Fox is also said to be partnering with a "wide range of storytellers and innovators for more entries of Amanda Ripley's story that will be announced later this month".

It also seems that since their buy out, it's been common knowledge that they've been working on a shooter in the Aliens universe for console and PC. "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". Isolation, you'll need to "outsmart the flawless hunter by making perilous choices", shepherding the surviving crew to safety. "The uncertainty and unpredictability of both the alien and her crew can impose total defeat for Amanda and the entire station".
