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

A NEW CHAPTER IN THE ALIEN FRANCHISE A new chapter in the Alien franchise following the saga of Amanda Ripley, Ellen Ripley's daughter, between the films Alien and Aliens.

Alien: Blackout has now been fully revealed to be a Teen-rated mobile game after several teasers led up to the announcement.

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. For now, anyway - based on the official Alien twitter account, it seems Blackout is part of a larger multimedia strategy based around Amanda Ripley.

"The terror of Alien is brought to life in 'Alien: Blackout.' 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". Isolation, you'll need to "outsmart the ideal hunter by making perilous choices", shepherding the surviving crew to safety.

The game will feature seven fear-inducing levels and players will assume the role of Amanda Ripley's crew. 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. It's coming to iOS and Android and is developed by FoxNext Games, D3 Go!, and Rival Games, as reported by Variety. Players have to guide these crew members through the Weyland-Yutani space station while avoiding the Xenomorphs that he Alien series is known for. However, there's not very much we can pull from the trailer.

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

While I'm always willing to give something a shot, seeing an incredibly atmospheric concept like this (especially after the fantastic Isolation already proved the idea works) on a mobile device is troubling.
