Alien: Blackout is a Teen-rated mobile game

New Alien video game stars Amanda Ripley, but is it Alien Isolation 2? ‘Alien: Blackout’ is a Survival Horror Mobile Game Starring Amanda Ripley

An announcement on mobile dev D3 Go!'s website (hat-tip to Variety) confirms that Alien: Blackout is "an immersive and captivating Alien experience, perfectly designed for mobile gaming" and will be available to download on the App Store, Google Play, and the Amazon Appstore.

Back in late November, we reported that 20th Century Fox were working on a new video game in the Alien series, following on from the hugely successful (and absolutely terrifying) Alien: Isolation.

As for the game's place in the larger Alien franchise, the story of the mobile title will fit between the Alien and Aliens and will feature Amanda, the daughter of Ellen Ripley.

Alien: Isolation is finally getting a sequel, but it may not be the sequel you've been clamoring for since 2014.

Blackout sticks Ripley Jr. and her crew on a Weyland-Yutani space station where-shocker-there's a xenomorph hanging around.

So we'll have to wait for more details of the game to be released.

According to the game's official description, Amanda Ripley finds herself in trouble again, this time on board a Weyland-Yutani space station (showing once again that the real villain of this franchise is an evil human corporation).

Sadly, we'll see none of this on console, as Alien: Blackout will only be coming to mobile devices. But it does suck a bit that this isn't a proper follow up to the excellent Alien Isolation. Isolation, you'll need to "outsmart the flawless hunter by making perilous choices", shepherding the surviving crew to safety. The in-game map - through which the player tracks systems, crewmembers, and motion-tracker blips - bears uncanny resemblance to that of the earlier game, as does the overall goal of the game. The unpredictability of both the mysterious alien and the ultimate fate of the crew will force players to make life or death decisions that permanently alter the outcome of the game. Alien: Blackout is an entirely different thing, though, and it's out on iOS and Android later this year.
