Alien: Blackout Announced, Is A Mobile Game Starring Amanda Ripley

  • New Alien video game stars Amanda Ripley, but is it Alien Isolation 2?

This is the new Alien project that was trademarked late previous year, so don't expect a console announcement anytime soon.

Although it's possible the new game could ignore this entirely you would've thought using the same character means it is going to be a continuation of some sort.

D3 GO!'s previous titles include "Marvel Puzzle Quest", and "Magic the Gathering - Puzzle Quest".

An announcement on mobile dev D3 Go!'s website (hat-tip to Variety) confirms that Alien: Blackout is "an immersive and captivating Alien experience, perfectly designed for mobile gaming" and will be available to download on the App Store, Google Play, and the Amazon Appstore.


As a result, and given the original was not a financial hit, it's been assumed that the game has nothing to do with 2014's Alien Isolation. It has been rated T (Teen) and finds you attempting to stay alive whilst trapped on board the Weyland-Yutani space station. Outsmart the ideal hunter by making perilous choices.

So we'll have to wait for more details of the game to be released. Players must rely on the damaged controls of the space station or risk sacrificing crew members to avoid deadly contact, permanently altering the outcome of the game.

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. 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.

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.
