Alien Blackout trailer

By the time Sigourney Weaver’s Ellen Ripley wakes up at the beginning of James Cameron’s Aliens, she’s been in cryo-sleep for 57 years. A lot can happen in nearly six decades, and the franchise has begun to explore that era in the form of video games. 2014’s Alien: Isolation was a popular survival horror game that featured Ripley’s daughter Amanda, and as previously teased, that character is returning in a new game called Alien: Blackout – and the first trailer is here.

The bad news? Whereas the well-reviewed Isolation was a console game, Blackout will be available on mobile devices. So get ready to look foolish screaming on the subway during a jump-scare, because a Xenomorph is going to be crawling around on your phone. Read More »

But that’s not stopping Activision from developing a sequel already. Nothing like putting the cart before the horse for the sake of efficiency. Read More »
