The highly acclaimed horror game Alien: Blackout will soon be delisted, revealing a new sense of urgency among fans to play the game before its "sunset" this November.

Alien: Blackout, the Popular Game, Unlock its Final Act Soon

The imminent departure of a great game often casts a shadow over gaming communities and fans alike. Such is the case with Alien: Blackout, the laudably sound mobile and tablet horror game developed by 505 Go, which will reach its sunset by 31st October.

A "sunset" in this context means that all development and support for the game will halt, and it will be delisted, meaning it will no longer be available to purchase. Currently, the game is available on iOS, Android and the Amazon store for a nominal fee of $0.99 or £0.79. Given its popularity and the extensive universe it offers, the game provides a worthwhile experience for its price, especially for those who cherish the dreaded Alien universe.

Playing a role in the Alien landscape would be exciting. More so, when the game is a sequel to the much-celebrated Alien: Isolation. The plot of Blackout brings back Amanda, the daughter of Ellen Ripley. In a shift from the actual hide-field gameplay, instead of running for your life from the menacing Xenomorph, you are huddled in a duct with CCTV footage, flipping through the cameras and remotely controlling doors to guide your fellow humans to safety. But rest assured, you aren't completely out of danger. There could be times when the Alien might come looking for you; cue to quickly cut the power and close the shutters.

In essence, the game can be imagined as an elaborate narrative puzzle set within the Alien cosmos, peppered with doses of acid-blood splatter. Augmenting the overall experience is its impressive cinematic production values that had many fans believing before its launch that it could potentially be a shooting game. However, the exact reason why FoxNext and 505 Go decided to pull the plug on Blackout is not clear. The official statement, though vague, expressed it was a "hard decision".

For those who miss out on the chance to play this game before the end of October, all hope is not lost. Thanks to some committed fans, a complete playthrough of the game has been uploaded on YouTube, creating an impromptu Alien movie for fans to enjoy. To many, this version of gameplay is a considerable improvement over Alien: Resurrection and provides a satisfactory conclusion.

Underpinning all this frantic rush is the sad reality that the vibrant universe of Alien: Blackout will soon fade into oblivion. This news comes with a sense of urgency for fans and first-time players gearing up for one final round in a world where every moment counts. The closure of Alien: Blackout is a reminder of the ephemeral nature of games and the durability of the impressions they leave behind. So, while you still can, dive into the frightful world of Alien: Blackout, and be part of its legendary journey.
