New Alien video game stars Amanda Ripley, but is it Alien Isolation 2?

Of course, we won't know for sure whether Alien: Blackout will live up to the lofty expectations from fans of Alien: Isolation until we've had a chance to check it out for ourselves. It carries on from 2014's Alien: Isolation, and like its predecessor, the new game sees Amanda stuck aboard a Weyland-Yutani space station with a horrifying Xenomorph. It appears your choices will affect how the narrative unfolds in each playthrough. It's a joint effort between FoxNext Games, D3 Go and Rival Games, and will once again focus on survival horror action in space. Isolation, you'll need to "outsmart the ideal hunter by making perilous choices", shepherding the surviving crew to safety.

According to the description, "Survive seven fear-inducing levels by remotely guiding Amanda Ripley's crew through increasingly challenging tasks using only the station's emergency systems". Alien: Blackout will be available on January 24, 2019, and is now available for pre-order in the App Store and Google Play.

Alien: Blackout is the first officially licensed mobile game based on the Alien film franchise.

The Alien movie franchise remains one of the most popular sci-fi series ever made, and it has spawned tons of great spin-offs in novels, comic books and games.

FoxNext Games' studio, Cold Iron Studios, is also now at work on a massively multiplayer online shooter set in the Alien cinematic universe for consoles and PC. However, it would seem that this time the story is more about what's going on with Amanda Ripley. You can see more screenshots on the publisher's website.

There's no word on if this game will cost something upfront, or if it will be a free-to-play title.

If you'd rather play a horror game set with with universe of Alien, Creative Assembly and SEGA's Alien: Isolation is still available for PC, PS3, PS4, Xbox 360, and Xbox One and can be picked up on Amazon.
