20th Century Fox have officially unveiled that the previously unknown, mysteriously titled Alien project known as Alien: Blackout is in fact, to the dismay of many hopeful Alien fans, a mobile game. Unfortunately for those who were hoping for a sequel to Alien: Isolation, the wait continues. This seems to be especially frustrating for some fans due to the fact that the marketing for Alien: Blackout has referenced Amanda Ripley, the protagonist from Creative Assembly's Alien: Isolation - which many assumed meant a return of the iconic character in a (console / PC based) Alien: Isolation sequel.

What's more unexpected is that you can pre-order the mobile game through Apple's App Store and Google's Play Store. The game will officially release January 24th.

Of course, we should try and give this game the benefit of the doubt and remain hopeful that Fox have more up their sleeves for the Alien franchise this year, but it is rather disappointing that the big unveiling was not something more profound and larger in scale. In case you wish to play something more adventurous than this, you can get the best Dota 2 cheats and try your hands at this battle arena video game.

Will you be pre-ordering Alien: Blackout? Let us know your initial thoughts in the comments.

Yep, Im keen. I'll be playing it. Hopefully it'll be an interesting new experience 

Perhaps it might bridge Alien: Isolation with "Alien: Resistance"?

They are looking at a easy way to make money and Gauge interest...

If this generates a decent amount of interest and money, maybe they can explore another Amanda Ripley AAA Game for Console/PC... and if that does well, maybe they could consider a Amanda Ripley Spin Off TV Series or Movie?

Its a ideal way to Gauge what Fans of the Franchise would like to see as far as Games and other Franchise Content.

I need to figure out how to do all that stuff on my phone. All I do is talk and text. Now there is finally something else I want to use the phone for :$

Its tricky.

We should welcome any new content to the franchise as positive, but on the flip-side we want quality over quantity, and shouldn't accept any less. 

But we do need to give any proposed release the benefit of the doubt until proven otherwise. There are some thoroughly engaging Point-and-click survival-horror games and quasi-RPG mobile device games too.

Hopefully Blackout will be a raging success.

lmao i know we wont get isolation 2 but my one hope is that they dont give us a "dumb" Alien, the AI on isolation made that game, that bastard kept poping up just when you dont need him too, Hope the alien is not overly predictable.

I am surprised how many people gave negative reaction to the mobile game announcement. I am actually pretty excited about it. It's good they try using different platforms to promote the franchise. I am definitely buying the game

I think the negative reactions stem from a track record where by mobile games tend to lack any real engaging content. They seem to be, for the most part, cheap accessories to larger scale projects. I do not game much on my phone and the few I have tried failed to keep me engaged beyond a week. The best so far are RTS games in my opinion, but an Isolation style hand held just doesn't scream epic. I won't pass judgement yet, but I was definitely hoping Blackout would have been something bigger, considering the lead-up.

They seem to be, for the most part, cheap accessories to larger scale projects. In a different thread, I wondered if this might be something to test interest for a AAA game.

Perhaps Blackout could be a lead-up?

Some mobile games are thoroughly engaging.

I was hooked by The Walking Dead: Road to Survival for about 12 months....and Im not even that big of a fan of the series. It was just a well crafted, addictive, satisfyingly enjoyable game to play....mostly because of the RPG and character building elements. 

Hopefully Blackout can do the same.
