Blackout announced — Survival horror Alien

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

You don't see many big companies making premium (AKA paid upfront) mobile games these days, and having a set, seven-mission structure that changes based on how much of your crew survives is thematically appropriate.

We thought all the signs pointed towards this announcement being for an honest-to-God Alien game.

The statement from the prosecutor said the suspects attended the hearing in the presence of their lawyers. No date has been set for the next hearing.

"Ol" Amanda has managed to land herself in a whole heap of trouble in a Weyland Yutani space station, which just so happens to be crawling with bugs and residents who are scared out of their minds at the thought of having their faces molested by extraterrestrial vagina monsters on crab legs. As of this morning, we find out that the game actually does exist - Alien: Blackout. The unpredictability of both the mysterious alien and the ultimate fate of the crew will force players to make life or death decisions that permanently alter the outcome of the game. In Blackout, Amanda Ripley, the daughter of Ellen Ripley, is trapped on a crippled Weyland-Yutani space station that's carrying a Xenomorph creature.

So far, there is no word on an official release date or pricing for Alien: Blackout.

MarShon Brooks not expected to report to team after trade
However, per The Athletic and Stadium's Shams Charania , the Bulls will be working on trading Brooks as soon as possible. In mid-December, the Grizzlies thought they had a three-team deal in place that would have sent Brooks to the Suns.

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

At the very least it should mean you get some sort of closure to Isolation's story. However, it would seem that this time the story is more about what's going on with Amanda Ripley. "Outsmart the flawless hunter by making perilous choices", says D3 Go's offical site for the game. You'll need to manage your resources as you go - allocating the station's limited power to tools that can help track the Alien, such as a holographic map, cameras, and a motion tracker. It's coming to iOS and Android and is developed by FoxNext Games, D3 Go!, and Rival Games, as reported by Variety.

That could then leave the door open for the Nationals to make a similar offer to the one they reportedly made in September. One thing is clear and that is that Harper is willing to wait for the right deal and even the right team.

The game also pays unexpected homage to Alien, the 1984 game for the Amstrad CPC, Commodore 64, and ZX Spectrum (the second-ever licensed game from the franchise, after 1982's glorified Pac-Man clone).
