The new Alien game, Blackout, is a mobile joint

It's being made by American developer Cold Iron, who are staffed by many ex-members of MMO developer Cryptic Studios and who describe it as a "new PC and console shooter based on the Alien franchise".

Although it's possible the new game could ignore this entirely you would've thought using the same character means it is going to be a continuation of some sort.

Apple iPhone XI might have the ugliest triple camera solution so far
There's no doubt the iPhone XI will support wireless charging and have aluminium core - even if it is for the premium models. The rumour reveals that Apple will go out of its way to make the upcoming iPhones much special and better than ever before.

Today, Variety revealed that Alien: Blackout had appeared on publisher D3 Go!'s website.

Alien: Blackout may not be the game any of us wanted, but at least there will be a continuation of Amanda Ripley's story.

Cleveland Cavaliers expected to release Patrick McCaw
Not to mention, it nearly certainly would require parting with McKinnie, whom they've clearly prioritized over McCaw. McCaw appeared in just three games for Cleveland, averaging 1.7 points and one rebound in 53 total minutes.

Apparently, you just can't keep a good biomechanical Xenomorph monster down as today, we got the first details on Alien: Blackout, an upcoming mobile game coming to Android (and iOS) devices on January 24. Unlike in Isolation, where the majority of the game was tracking down what had happened with Ellen Ripley. "Try to stay alive while trapped aboard a crippled Weyland-Yutani space station carrying a deadly Xenomorph as it tirelessly hunts you and the crew".

It's now getting a sequel - and it's a mobile game. 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. Players will need to survive increasingly challenging, fear-inducing levels by balancing the controls of the space station's emergency systems to skillfully guide their crew to safety and avoid encounters with the enemy. However, there's not very much we can pull from the trailer.

Gabon army seizes national radio station in apparent coup attempt
He sought to put an end to the rumours about his health with a televised New Year message in which he said he was feeling fine. The military in oil-rich Gabon is saying it has seized power from the President Ali Bongo-led government in the country.

While I'm always willing to give something a shot, seeing an incredibly atmospheric concept like this (especially after the fantastic Isolation already proved the idea works) on a mobile device is troubling. At the same time, it's too early to write the game off just yet - I'll reserve my judgment when I am able to get my hands on the title.
