The good news about the tease
that surfaced over the weekend for
an Aliens project is that this indeed turns out to be for Alien Blackout
a title discovered late last year
through its trademark filing. The bad news, for PC gamers at least, is that this
will be a mobile offering. A new
Alien: Blackout website
) has the details, and here's a bit:
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 premium mobile game experience
that will test the inner nerves of both Alien and horror fans alike, where life
can end in an instant.
