Alien: Blackout is a survival horror mobile game that has you explore a Weyland-Yutani space station while avoiding xenomorphs.

We don't yet know how Alien: Blackout will be monetized, and the lack of any substantial gameplay footage leaves me questioning what we should expect, but going on the information at hand, it sounds like this upcoming release will offer a mix of stealthy and strategic horror-filled gameplay that could potentially work well on mobile devices.

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. "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".

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

So we'll have to wait for more details of the game to be released. It also seems a prime candidate for a low-cost Nintendo Switch port, but FoxNext, D3 Go and Rival Games can cross that blindingly obvious bridge when they come to it. Isolation, you'll need to "outsmart the flawless hunter by making perilous choices", shepherding the surviving crew to safety.

It has been detailed that there are seven levels that will require you to guide a crew through the station using only the stations emergency systems through a holographic map. Alien: Blackout takes place between the films, Alien and Aliens and has a focus on forcing you to make choices that impact the game.

There's no word on if this game will cost something upfront, or if it will be a free-to-play title. So here's hoping Alien: Blackout's developers will deliver a quality Alien game on Android.
