The cover artwork and release date for Titan Books' upcoming novel Alien: Inferno's Fall has been officially revealed as part of its pre-order listing on Amazon! This exciting new novel written by Philippa Ballantine and Clara Carija will be arriving July 26th, 2022 and will explore the events which unfold after an Engineer vessel passes over a Human Colony on a new planet and unleashes its Black Goo payload. Check out the cover artwork and official synopsis below!

A gargantuan, horseshoe-shaped ship appears over the mining planet ShÄnmén unleashing a black rain of death that creates Xenomorph-like monsters worse than the darkest of nightmares.

As war breaks out among the colonies, a huge ship appears over the UPP mining planet ShÄnmén, unleashing a black rain of death that yields hideous transformations. Rescue is too far away, and the colonists’ only hope appears in the form of the vessel Righteous Fury. It carries the Jackals–an elite mix of former Colonial Marines and Royal Marines. Led by Zula Hendrix, the Jackals seek to rescue the few survivors from the depths of the planet, but have they arrived time?

I'm not a comic book guy, but it's good to see that they haven't totally abandoned the Engineers. I'm not sure how much big of a role they will have and or be featured there, but they might use that as a test to see how many that want to see the Engineers in some way. Hopefully enough people will be interested in seeing them.

It would be Interesting to see the Engineers the RISK with them as ALWAYS is IF you Consider such Stories as Canon... is WHY is the Earth still FULL of Humans?

I think its ODD that the Neomorphs are the same as on Planet 4, the WAY i looked at them was we see in Damp Environments we have MOLD/SPORES that have Grown and the GOO has Infected these Organisms to become a METHOD to Procreate a Hybrid Life-form.

If the Black Goo goes and Infects some MOLD/SPORES etc on another World then the RESULT would be similar i would say.

However IF the Goo infects a Organism Directly would it LOOK like the Neomorph or be a Little Different?

We only have to look at Fifield...... but other Concept Work and Ideas had him become something that was maybe more Similar to the Neomorph.  Indeed looking at Concepts from 2014 then the OUTCOME is similar to the Neomorph too, but then THIS is NOT what we saw with the Engineers on Planet 4 but i guess thats for a Different Topic.

It would seem they (those working on a Prometheus Sequel) had Envisioned a Direct Contact with the Black Goo would have Produced something thats like a Cross Between the Deacon and Neomorph.

That reminds me there is a new ALIEN novel called Colony Wars which ties into the ALIEN RPG's canon

There will be a short cinematic scenario written by canon guru Andrew Gaska in both Inferno's Fall and Colony War. It is part of an effort to keep the lore between the movies, novels, and rpg together. I've mentioned the RPG here several times, but it bears saying again: it is fantastic and ties all of the various aspects of the alien/s franchise together in a cohesive way. Its sad that there has never, to my knowledge, been an article here about it.

Also, the engineers have had a role in the rpg from the start. The game has kept them active and present but mysterious and aloof.

This might be interesting to some of you. An article on canon in the Alien universe as defined by Andrew Gaska.
