Alien Blackout mobile game

Alien: Isolation is a fantastic horror game from Creative Assembly and Sega. Fans want a sequel but that's just not in the cards right now. In fact, most of the dev team that worked on Alien: Isolation aren't even with the studio any longer.

In spite of that, fans still believed and hoped that an Alien: Isolation sequel was in the cards when the Alien Twitter account began to tease something new just a couple of days ago.

That something has been revealed and it is none other than a new mobile game. We all have phones, yeah? The new mobile game is called Alien: Blackout and it tasks you with surviving.

The terror of Alien is brought to life in Alien: Blackout. 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. Outsmart the perfect hunter by making perilous choices. 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.

Survive seven fear-inducing levels by remotely guiding Amanda Ripley’s crew through increasingly challenging tasks using only the station’s emergency systems. The uncertainty and unpredictability of both the alien and her crew can impose total defeat for Amanda and the entire station.

Using only the space station’s limited power supply to operate a holographic map, surveillance cameras, and motion tracker, attempt to remain hidden and protect your crew from the perfect hunter in seven fear-inducing levels.

A new chapter in the Alien franchise following the saga of Amanda Ripley, Ellen Ripley’s daughter, between the films Alien and Aliens.

An immersive and captivating Alien experience, perfectly designed for mobile gaming, bringing the Alien story to life.

Every decision can lead to a different conclusion. Players can test different strategies and theories to outlast the Xenomorph in pursuit of victory!
