Alien: Blackout will try to make you scream on Android this January

Amanda finds her self on yet another Weyland-Yutani space station, with yet another Xenomorph chasing after her and the crew (or what's left of them). A new tweet from the Alien Anthology Twitter account, which represents 21st Century Fox's franchise, suggest the company means to expand on the story started in 2014's Alien: Isolation in more ways than one.

Instead, the game is a mobile title for iOS, and it follows protagonist Amanda Ripley (the daughter of the original film's protagonist, Ellen Ripley). The uncertainty and unpredictability of both the alien and her crew can impose total defeat for Amanda and the entire station. There are also controls for directing crewmates around the environment, or if you're like me, telling them to keep hiding while you try to figure out if that's the alien's "just banging around in the air ducts over here" or "definitely gonna drop down and kill you" behavior. So we'll have to wait for more details of the game to be released. As the Alien hunts you and your crew down you'll have to remotely guide your team using the station's emergency systems, which sounds like this release will contain some strategic gameplay.

"Alien: Blackout" is a mobile game in development from FoxNext Games, D3 Go!, and Rival Games that puts players in the boots of Amanda Ripley aboard an alien-infested Weyland-Yutani space station.

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

ENCOUNTER FEAR AGAIN AND AGAIN Every decision can lead to a different conclusion. And unlike Isolation, which was developed by the British studio Creative Assembly, Alien Blackout will be published by D3 Go, previously responsible for Marvel Puzzle Quest and Adventure Gnome.

The listing also promises different strategies and endings. Speculation was that we'd see a reveal at The Game Awards 2018, but that ended up not happening. Unlike Isolation, which launched on PC and consoles, Alien Blackout is launching on the Apple and Google stores.
