After a trademark filing last year and some teases last week, many fans of the Alien franchise were getting excited for a potential new release in the survival horror series. Alien: Isolation is beloved by many in the genre for the atmosphere it had during gameplay and a lot more that appealed to horror fans. Today, Alien: Blackout has been announced and it is a mobile game in the Alien franchise that is set to release soon for iOS and Android devices.
Alien: Blackout is in development from FoxNext Games, D3 Go!, and Rival Games. You play as Amanda Ripley on an alien infested space station. The Weyland-Yutani is carrying a deadly Xenomorph on board that is hunting you and the crew.
