Alien: Blackout Officially Announced, Stars Amanda Ripley
Many of you may have noticed the recent teasers that were hinting at a new game based on a certain hit horror film franchise. That said, Alien: Blackout has officially been announced, and it does star Amanda Ripley, the daughter of Ellen Ripley, Sigourney Weaver’s character in the movies.
Set to take place between the films Alien and Aliens, Blackout is a survival horror mobile game that will have players guide Amanda and crew through a Weyland-Yutani space station that also happens to be harboring a Xenomorph. According to the description provided on the D3 Go! website:
“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.
Survive seven fear-inducing levels by remotely guiding Amanda Ripley’s crew through increasingly challenging tasks using only the station’s emergency systems. The uncertainty and unpredictability of both the alien and her crew can impose total defeat for Amanda and the entire station.
Alien: Blackout is a unique fear-inducing horror mobile game experience that will test the inner nerves of both Alien and horror fans alike, where life can end in an instant.”
