Cold Iron Studios’ Alien Game is a “Massively Multiplayer Online Shooter”

Yesterday’s announcement revealed that the recently trademarked Alien: Blackout was for a new iOS and Android game due out at the end of January. It also had some confirmation of a long suspected aspect of the still shrouded in mystery game that Cold Iron Studios is still working on: That it’s an MMO-shooter.

Tucked in at the end of the press release announcing Alien: Blackout, is the single sentence confirming the expectations:

FoxNext Games’ studio, Cold Iron Studios, is also currently at work on a massively multiplayer online shooter set in the Alien cinematic universe for consoles and PC.

 Cold Iron Studios' Alien Game is a

Cold Iron Studios’ Alien game has previously been described as an “action-packed persistent world,” and now we have actual confirmation of an MMO format for the upcoming release. While only speculation on my part, I think this makes it seem likely that the upcoming game will follow a Destiny-style format.

    A nice tribute to Bill Paxton would be skins from Aliens, Predator 2, Terminator, Weird Science and Near Dark.

    Now this is a skin pack I would pay for!

    "Did we just become best friends?!"

    Sorry, Huggs.


    Don't be sorry. Me and Voodoo are buddies.  ;)



    Yup!  Nothin' but love for my homeboy.

    He's not on our team for this MMO, though.

    Sorry, Huggs.

    Would this skin pack answer the question of what happens if a vampire bites a Predator?

    Whoever ends up being playable (I really hope we get more than just the marines) I do hope we get customisation. It was one of the things I did genuinely like about Colonial Marines even if it was pretty shallow. I'd hope in this day and age they'd go all out with it.
  7. Seegson
    I really hope aliens will be playable and have some customisation

    Pretty sure marines will have tons of customisation, but i dont think xenos will be a playable faction.
    If this is gonna be like destiny, we will have humans vs xenos (IA), with tons of missions. But add black goo + enginners to the xeno faction, so enemy types will be endless

    For Aliens being a playable game, it will require some kind of node/map control...like planetside, or wwii online campaing kind of games...i dont they will choose that kind of gameplay

    Those poor unsuspecting subway riding Aliens and Predators won't know what hit them.

    Would we get a Lambert model? Or do we just give Hudson a hat and revolver?

    Neither! We send in Chet!

    I like the way you think.

    What about his character in Near Dark? Could vampires be immune to facehuggers?

    I wonder if she's even played KOTOR2.

    Speaking of which, if this MMO actually takes off I wonder how long before the fans clamoring for some AvP action in it will get their wish.

    That's what I'm figuring. 12 Months down the road Predators, maybe their homeworld, maybe their hunting reserve planet, will all be part of a paid expansion.

    Or, we can recreate the Predator 2 experience by kicking ass on a subway and chasing people in buildings.

    Just a suggestion.

    Sometimes the sheer daunting size of the backlog makes it hard to prioritize one thing over another which in turn paralyzes you into doing nothing.  Hicks may have just missed the boat and will therefore never even try Dead Space.

    Dead Space requires a much bigger commitment than a 1h 48m movie though.

    Granted, but it's time well-spent.  Ask anyone.

    I know it is brother.  :) All I meant was it's a much larger backlog to overcome.


    The good news is that I've seen all six Star Wars, so I'm not a total loss.

    But there are 10 Star Wars movies, soooo.  :P

    I meant to say OT and prequel trilogy.

    I figured that's what you meant.  ;D

    Dear god! Have you never seen The Terminator? :o

    Not yet.

    Ask Voodoo. He's been bugging me about since Thanksgiving.

    And I will continue to do so until you do!!

    And if Hicks starring role can't get you to watch The TERMINATOR, then maybe Hudson's small part can!

    This I already knew about.

    There's gotta be stories about what they did to his hair. That's freakin' golden.

    It's totally natural. Most call it the "Cameron Effect". Have you not heard of his behavior onset?

    No, I haven't.

    I'm still green to this.

    (I still need to play Dead Space, though.)

    Its quite cheap on steam.

    I would murder someone just to experience dead space again for the first time. MURDER!!

    The combination of action/ dread/ terror etc is perfect. You hate to continue it, but you also want to know how Isaac's journey ends.

    Play it hicks.. You will love it.

    2 & 3 aren't my favs, but the first one is gold.

    Dead space was one of the first games I played of the 360/ps3 generation, the first time playing it is one of my favorite gaming memories. I enjoyed 2 and 3, but the first had that alien vibe to it, the spaceship atmosphere on it was unique. Considering that not even its sequels were able to replicate that... the chances of a new alien game doing it are low.
