Alien: Blackout is a Teen-rated mobile game

Alien: Blackout is a Teen-rated mobile game

So here's hoping Alien: Blackout's developers will deliver a quality Alien game on Android. Outsmart the flawless hunter by making perilous choices.

The above trailer for Alien: Blackout doesn't provide too much insight, though if you've played Alien: Isolation, the general premise should look familiar.

Alien: Blackout may not be the game any of us wanted, but at least there will be a continuation of Amanda Ripley's story.

The main difference between the new mobile game and its predecessor is that, instead of first person gameplay, the player takes on a far more voyeuristic role, using the space station's surveillance system, motion sensors, and holographic map to watch over the crew and its alien invader.

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

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).

Vivek Oberoi shines as Narendra Modi
I'm feeling the same excitement, same hunger because this kind of a role is a once in a lifetime experience for any actor. The biopic is being directed by Omung Kumar who is popular for helming the Mary Kom biopic starring Priyanka Chopra.

To reduce some of the negativity towards this announcement, FoxNext has also revealed that their studio Cold Iron Studios is working on a brand new Alien game for consoles and PC.

The new premium survival horror mobile game is being developed by Rival Games and Theory Interactive.

FoxNext Games' studio, Cold Iron Studios, is also now at work on a massively multiplayer online shooter set in the Alien cinematic universe for consoles and PC. Plus, Fox plans to tell more of Amanda Ripley's story across multiple mediums throughout 2019.

Although it's possible the new game could ignore this entirely you would've thought using the same character means it is going to be a continuation of some sort. The uncertainty and unpredictability of both the alien and her crew can impose total defeat for Amanda and the entire station.

When we first wrote this article a few years ago, the horror games genre wasn't great.
