Alien: Blackout Announced, Is A Mobile Game Starring Amanda Ripley

Except that the official Alien Twitter account has started teasing something that stars Amanda Ripley and involves uncovering the secrets "left behind" by the crew of the Nostromo in the original film.

Alien: Blackout is a mobile game where you manage Amanda Ripley and her crew while they're trapped on a space station.

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. A new Twitter account is also being linked through the Alien: Blackout page, but it is now set to a private account, either way, it's worth keeping eyes on it for if it goes live.

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.

D3 Go describes Blackout as "an immersive and captivating Alien experience, perfectly designed for mobile gaming". "Survive seven fear-inducing levels by remotely guiding Amanda Ripley's crew through increasingly challenging tasks using only the station's emergency systems", the game's description reads.

Alien: Blackout will be available for Android and IOS. 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.

D3 GO!'s previous titles include "Marvel Puzzle Quest", and "Magic the Gathering - Puzzle Quest". This is the new Alien project that was trademarked late a year ago, so don't expect a console announcement anytime soon. Rival Games, meanwhile, developed narrative-driven game Thief of Thieves, which is based on the comic by The Walking Dead creator Robert Kirkman.
