We knew that those non-goodwillers at Weyland-Yutani were at the height of something. (I'm not always?) After cryptically teased that … something … it was being worked on, the series Alien revealed that a new game after Amanda Ripley and her fight for survival against a Xenomorph acid will soon be available for players' mobile devices. The D3 Go! Video game publisher announced that the horror-themed mobile game Alien: Blackout, will be available later this month.
In Alien: Blackout developed together with FoxNext Games and Rival Games, Amanda Ripley (daughter of the franchise favorite Ellen Ripley) and her crew are trapped aboard a Weyland-Yutani space station paralyzed together to a deadly Xenomorph (though in reality there is some other kind?) That is hunting them. Players must rely on the damaged space station controls to drive Amanda and her crew away from hazards through seven levels.
"[Fans] comes to feel the fear for the first time on mobile devices, something for which the first film is famous, that suspense, that fear.It is right there to try on the phone, especially I would recommend using headphones because this brings a completely different level to the player's immersion, "Jukka Laakso, CEO / founder of Rival Games, told SYFY WIRE at the start of the week during a live demonstration of the game in Manhattan.
Here's the teaser:
At the end of last month, people behind the franchise of Alien hinted to have something in the kitchen through his Instagram account. Last week, the official account Alien Twitter teased that something was being worked on .
"Unlike the first film in which Ash's orders [are that] crew are expendable, in this game, crew is not expendable", added TQ Jefferson, VP of external development at FoxNext. "You need the crew, you need to keep them alive or as much alive as possible because your goals are aligned, everyone wants to get out of this station, so keeping these people healthy is critical to success."
And for those of you who literally never get enough of the terrifying and disruptive misadventures of Amanda Ripley against the Xenomorphs, Dark Horse releases Aliens: Resistance, four-part comics miniseries written by Wood with The Art of Robert Carey from January 23
Alien: Blackout is available on the App Store, Google Play and Amazon Appstore on January 24th. It is currently available for pre-order.
"This is the tip of the spear for a lot of activity that will be launched or will be announced soon enough for the franchise Alien ," Jefferson said. "Being the year of the 40th anniversary and the Alien Day in April only three and a half months from now, I think everyone will be quite satisfied with some of the things we are preparing and we will start announcing and launching in rapid succession. "
