The discussion of the Alien series of films and the props used in them is the aim, but if it's got Big Bugs and Big Guns, then they are welcome too!

It's been said that it is a First Person Shooter. I'm going to be doing some digging into this

Thanks for the update! :) That company (Cold Iron Studios) has been involved in some of my favorites, Neverwinter, BioShock, and Borderlands.

I'm excited about this. Colonial Marines was heartbreaking, but I feel like they wouldn't take another kick at this particular can if they were thinking that history would repeat itself.

I'm hoping that this is an Aliens/Colonial Marine game, even though everything I've read said it is an "Alien" game... but also that it's an FPS. It would be weird to have an action oriented Alien game not including the Colonial Marines, but it could be cool I guess. (I wouldn't really consider Alien: Isolation a First Person "Shooter".)

I'm really excited about this! Isolation was amazing but there's been a void for regular MP play left since the days of AvP2. Really hope this ends up being a well crafted shooter.

A first person shooter using the weapons and tech from the Alien time period would be fascinating. Isolation already extrapolated on the visuals but didn't really embrace the sidearm the Nostromo crew sported.

But I'm betting "Alien" is referring to the saga, not specifically the film. I'd honestly play a Covenant FPS fighting Neomorphs, or as a member of the Betty crew fighting to escape the Auriga.

I need more details before I get excited. I wanna know what the 'angle' is. What makes it unique besides the target in your sights having elongated heads?

Something like Retro just said would be awesome. Various in-universe locations with in-universe weapons would be great.

Or just give the colonial marines a do-over! Do it right this time!
I know...i know. They aint getting another chance. -sigh-

That image reminds me of David's drawings from Covenant. Maybe this new project is tied in to Prometheus/Covenant? Then again, I'm probably just over-analyzing. :)

You're the second person I've seen to say that, so maybe?

In that case... very hard pass! (nooo thank yoooou!) :lol:

I agree Blivet, it looks like a Covenant illustration. Not sure what to make of that, but I'm not 100% surprised.

It's from the Alien: Escape attraction in Madam Tussauds. They've got them plasted in one of the rooms. Just a copy of artwork from the film. They shared another picture of the Alien waxwork on display there too.

Hope to see an official release date for this game. I like first person shooters but I really enjoyed PS2 AVP EXTINCTION.

Thanks much, Moosh89! :D

Some rumors point to it being online, for PC, and made in Unreal Engine 4, and hopefully all three rumors are true (as a die-hard PC-gamer and UE4-user myself).

https://comicbook.com/gaming/2018/11/25/alien-blackout-pc-consoles-first-details/

Looking forward to December 6th. :)

Can you survive? All that matters is that you escape before THEY come out of the shadows… Preorder Alien: Blackout today.

Preorder App Store: http://smarturl.it/clbmk9
Preorder Google Play: http://smarturl.it/v9kaix

Personal opinion: Very disappointed... but I haven't seen any mention of Cold Iron Studios so this may be unrelated.

Mass Effect Infiltrator was pretty decent on mobile and tablet.
It's possible these guys could pull off something similar.

The release came with the teaser "Read, Play, Watch". My guess is that this means:
(1) New books coming out, possibly extending the Amanda Ripley storyline
(2) The mobile game and the shooter MMO that has also been announced
(3) Here's the kicker - an Aliens/Colonial Marine/Colonist TV series, which has been rumored in the works. If that happens, as Russ Jordan said "Folks, we have scored big this time". :)

We've got both the Read (Resistance, and the novel), now the Play (Blackout) and now one more thing left for Amanda in the Watch.

The mmo-shooter thing is still being worked on. Blackout is just a new side piece. :)
