Alien: Blackout is a Puzzle Game for Mobile Devices

Reminds me of Command and Conquer for all the wrong reasons.

Fans have been eagerly awaiting for more information about Alien: Blackout, the next game in the Alien franchise. What they weren't expecting was for it to be a mobile game.

FoxNext Games has announced their latest mobile game, Alien: Blackout. Developed alongside D3 Go! and Rival Games, the player takes the role of Amanda Ripley, who has to guide her crew through the compromised Weyland-Yutani station. With limited power remaining, she also has to avoid the Xenomorph roaming the halls.



There was a buzz about what exactly Blackout would be. it was first discovered through patent files, and later through Twitter accounts holding the same name. People had hoped for a follow-up to the well-received survival horror game Alien: Isolation. It appears to be a puzzle horror game of sorts akin to the Five Nights at Freddy's franchise.

Survive seven fear-inducing levels by remotely guiding Amanda Ripleys crew through increasingly challenging tasks using only the stations emergency systems. The uncertainty and unpredictability of both the alien and her crew can impose total defeat for Amanda and the entire station.


At the same time as the game's reveal, the Alien Twitter account tweeted about it and the recently revealed Alien Trilogy pack with the #ReadPlayWatch hashtag. This implies that there will be a "read" option alongside the game and movie pack. What that will be remains to be said.

The game is expected to release on January 24, 2019, for $4.99, according to the iTunes App Store. It will also be available on the Google Play store. You can find more information about the game on the developer website.

I'm not excited about this, either.
