Today, FoxNext Games and D3 Go! have revealed Alien: Blackout, the next chapter in the Alien franchise taking place after the events of Alien: Isolation. The game will take place primarily at the controls of the space station’s emergency systems.
In Alien: Blackout, players assume the role of Amanda Ripley, trapped aboard a crippled Weyland-Yutani space station carrying a blood-thirsty creature. Players will need to survive increasingly challenging, fear-inducing levels by balancing the controls of the space station’s emergency systems to skillfully guide their crew to safety and avoid encounters with the enemy. 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 will include seven levels of horror as players have to deal with the unpredictability of both the alien and the crew members. Each choice could change the outcome of the game and players may need to make sacrifices.
This year, fans of the critically-acclaimed Alien: Isolation video game are invited to embark on new adventures with Ellen Ripley’s daughter, Amanda, by watching, playing, and reading her story as she renews her fight against the aliens after the events of Isolation. 20th Century Fox will partner with a wide range of storytellers and innovators to bring this epic chapter in the Alien Universe to life, with even more entries in Amanda Ripley’s story soon to be announced.
FoxNext Games also revealed that Cold Iron Studios is currently working on a massive multiplayer online shooter set in the Alien cinematic universe for consoles and PC. Alien: Blackout will be released on iOS and Android devices on January 24th for $4.99. For more information, visit the App Store page.
