"The terror of Alien is brought to life in Alien: Blackout", D3 Go!'s site said about the new mobile game. Turns out it was real.

Alien: Isolation is finally getting a sequel, but it may not be the sequel you've been clamoring for since 2014. Good news: it's not that.

Now, we 're not averse to mobile games over here at VG247. The game will be available for download on the App Store, Google Play, and the Amazon Appstore, according to the publisher.

Additionally, this title does, in fact, have 20th Century Fox behind it, so it appears as if there's no second Alien: Isolation on the horizon, at least not for the time being anyway.

It was widely assumed that the new game, believed to be subtitled Blackout, would be announced at The Game Awards in December but despite what seemed to be a tease to that effect nothing was ever mentioned.

Spotted on the D3 Go! page (first noticed by Variety), the Alien: Blackout game was confirmed to be a survivor horror title starring Amanda Ripley's crew.

Blackout sticks Ripley Jr. and her crew on a Weyland-Yutani space station where-shocker-there's a xenomorph hanging around. Outsmart the flawless hunter by making perilous choices.

It has been detailed that there are seven levels that will require you to guide a crew through the station using only the stations emergency systems through a holographic map. Alien: Blackout takes place between the films, Alien and Aliens and has a focus on forcing you to make choices that impact the game. "The uncertainty and unpredictability of both the alien and her crew can impose total defeat for Amanda and the entire station". Isolation, you'll need to "outsmart the flawless hunter by making perilous choices", shepherding the surviving crew to safety. Watch that phone battery as well, eh?
