Alien Blackout Mobile Smartphone 1

Alien: Isolation protagonist Amanda Ripley is making a comeback in a new game – but it’s not what you were hoping for. Alien: Blackout is a survival horror game for smartphones, where you’ll need to guide the aforementioned character’s crew through the Weyland-Yutani across seven perilous levels. It sounds like Lemmings with the Xenomorph, to be honest.

There had been hope that 20th Century Fox may be lining up a new console game after posting a series of teasers on social media over the weekend. One tweet alluded to fans being able to “Read. Play. Watch” the latest adventures of Ripley – but it seems like you’ll be doing all of your playing on your phone for the time being. A shame.

Update: 20th Century Fox has reached out to us to clarify that Alien: Blackout is not a sequel but a standalone game starring Amanda Ripley. "[This] is a standalone game that shares Amanda Ripley as a main character but is not related to or a sequel to Isolation," the company said.
