Alien: Blackout announced, is a mobile game

20th Century Fox tease a new Alien game that may actually be an interactive movie like Bandersnatch

FoxNext Games and D3 Go! have revealed a new chapter in the Alien franchise: Alien: Blackout, a premium survival horror mobile game developed by Rival Games and Theory Interactive that picks up the saga of Amanda Ripley between the films Alien and Aliens. There, best to rip the plaster off quickly.

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. Players will 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.

Players will be tasked with surviving seven levels by guiding Ripley's crew through "increasingly challenging tasks using only the station's emergency system".

Can fresh US-China trade talks bring a breakthrough?
UBS said on Friday that 37 percent of 200 manufacturers surveyed by the bank have shifted out of China over the past 12 months. Chinese growth fell to a post-global crisis low of 6.5 percent in the quarter ending in September.


Now, we 're not averse to mobile games over here at VG247.

Alien: Blackout is coming to the App Store, Google Play, and Amazon Appstore on January 24. Alien: Blackout may serve as a (sort-of) sequel to that earlier game. But it does suck a bit that this isn't a proper follow up to the excellent Alien Isolation.

Using a map, motion sensors, and other tools, you're tasked with getting yourself and your crew to safety before the power supply runs out.

Upcoming Samsung TVs to Support Google Assistant & Amazon's Alexa
Samsung's next line of TVs, coming this year, will offer voice control through Amazon's Alexa and Google's Assistant. This means that users will be able to control their Samsung TV with the help of these voice assistants.


Additionally, this title does, in fact, have 20th Century Fox behind it, so it appears as if there's no second Alien: Isolation on the horizon, at least not for the time being anyway. Alien: Blackout is an entirely different thing, though, and it's out on iOS and Android later this year.

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. That sounds very much like the surveillance-camera spook-em-up Five Nights At Freddy's, and based on the trailer, it looks like it too, albeit with a mobile-AAA paint job.
