Today the latest effort to extend the story of Alien franchise has been announced. The game Alien: Blackout will be a sequel to Alien: Isolation. The first game was developed by Creative Assembly, the studio behind the Total War series. This game is being developed by D3Go, the studio behind the Magic: The Gathering and Marvel Puzzle Quest games.

The game will feature Amanda Ripley, daughter of Ellen Ripley as a returning character.  Set between the films Alien and Aliens, the game description was taken from the D3Go site:

“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. Outsmart the perfect hunter by making perilous choices. 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.”

Alien: Blackout will be available on January 24th for Apple, Google, and Amazon devices. Players can pre-order the game by clicking the link available on this site or your respective mobile stores. The price of the game is only $4.99 at the moment. I did jump in and pre-ordered the game for my iPhone. This was not the news that I was hoping for. The Alien social media accounts had been teasing something. Well at least fans are getting something at the moment.
