I would enjoy an asymmetrical versus type of game, Like Dead by daylight or Friday the 13th. Imagine if one player controls the Alien and 4 players play as colonists and must complete tasks so survive the alien. perhaps there could be a 6th player that assumes the role of a synthetic and can choose if he wants to aid the alien (Like ash) or aid the colonists (Like Bishop)

The alien player could start the game as a chestburster, bursting out of a random player at the start of a match, and the player of the victim would instead assume the role of the android.

One of the most fun features of alien gameplay ever IMO, Was in rebellions Jaguar AVP game, where you could cocoon humans into aliens and watch the embryos develop on the HUD. Don't know how that worked with the established lore but I really enjoyed that mechanic.

@Bobby,

That would actually be pretty neat. Would be a different take on MP side of things for the franchise, and could even be a lot of fun long as they had 20+ maps, different game modes, and so on.

Though I'd still want a 30+ hour story campaign with a deep branching narrative, permadeath of squadmates (Based on decisions you make), a combo of Isolation survival horror and shootem up when it's needed, and multiple endings depending on how you play/choices you made (Help USCM Kill the hive, bring a sample to WY,  so Independant and screw both sides in some way, and so on.).   

Though I know, I'm asking for way too much, that would be Old School BioWare, or Obsidian levels of Game Design. Won't happen in the current age, even though a game like that would probably break millions if made by the right team who understand what "Player Agency" and "Narrative Choice" means >.>

I don't think anyone is even lukewarm to sussing out what Blackout is.  ;D

i’m all for ccg’s, but it would be disappointing if blackout turns out to be anything but a story based survival horror/fps/online thing

Why? While we don't know the full specifics of the mechanics, we know Cold Iron's game is going to be some sort of online shooter. If that isn't Blackout it just means Blackout is something else to enjoy and you've still got the Cold Iron thing to still look forward to.

Pft. Give me a new CCG!

At least you're optimistic, unlike everyone else here.

Ha. It's hard work these days. As an FYI, Upper Deck's recent card based stuff has been super fun!

I already got grilled because I said I wouldn't pay $60-$70 for Biehn/Rolston/Henriksen's signatures (I know we were just kidding around) on a card. I'll touch cards . . . eventually.

If it's not narratively driven, I'm not interested.

If not, you can get your friends together in multiplayer and roleplay.
