If you're both a fan if the FNAF franchise and the Alien, this game may well be the game of your dreams.

We thought all the signs pointed towards this announcement being for an honest-to-God Alien game.

There had been A LOT of speculation about the upcoming Alien game, with it ranging from a straight-up sequel to critical darling Alien: Isolation, to it being a Bandersnatch-esque interactive movie that would continue to focus on Amanda (daughter of Ellen) Ripley as she continued to search for her mother. For example, you'll have the decision to sacrifice other crew members in order to save Ripley, ultimately altering the outcome of the game.

In Alien: Blackout, players assume the role of Amanda Ripley, trapped aboard a crippled Weyland-Yutani space station carrying a blood-thirsty creature. More good news: Amanda Ripley is back. Outsmart the flawless hunter by making perilous choices.

At the very least it should mean you get some sort of closure to Isolation's story. Alien: Blackout is coming to iOS and Android on January 24, and it won't be free-to-play. Huh!

Kevin Hart May Return as Oscars Host Thanks to Ellen Degeneres
DeGeneres, for her part, revealed that she called the Academy to ask its leaders to reconsider having Hart host the Oscars . Nick Cannon stood by his best friend Kevin Hart last month when Hart stepped down as the host of the 2019 Oscars .

Per the official description: "Using only the space station's limited power supply to operate a holographic map, surveillance cameras, and motion tracker, attempt to remain hidden and protect your crew from the flawless hunter in seven fear-inducing levels".

There's seven levels to tackle, and you'll have to make use of the limited power supply of the station to manipulate various bits and bobs, such as a cameras, a holographic map and motion trackers.

It also seems that since their buy out, it's been common knowledge that they've been working on a shooter in the Aliens universe for console and PC.

There's no word on if this game will cost something upfront, or if it will be a free-to-play title. And unlike Isolation, which was developed by the British studio Creative Assembly, Alien Blackout will be published by D3 Go, previously responsible for Marvel Puzzle Quest and Adventure Gnome.
