A community-made map named Spillway set on a dam facility is added to KF2 as part of the event that is compatible for Endless, Survival, VS Survival and Weekly Outbreaks game modes to have more Zed encounters within corridors and open spaces.

Alien: Blackout Revealed

Amanda Ripley from Alien: Isolation returns for another showdown with a deadly Xenomorph in Alien: Blackout mobile game.

Last year in January, 20th Century Fox has acquired developer Cold Iron Studios for their video game division FoxNext Games and they announced to have been working on a shooter title that is set on the sci-fi horror franchise of Alien, created by director Ridley Scott in 1979.

Then Alien: Blackout title being trademarked by Fox revealed the name of the game and it was about to be announced at The Game Awards 2018, which didn't happen in the end. The game has finally dropped a trailer and it turns out to be a premium mobile game.

The trailer gives away a survival horror type atmosphere the game offers where daughter of Ellen Ripley and the protagonist of Alien: Isolation, Amanda Ripley is shown to be locked with a Xenomorph aboard Weyland-Yutani space station.

Players will assume her role in a struggle to survive the deadliest species of the galaxy trying to outsmart her and the crew in every move. In order to stay alive, you could risk the lives of other crew members or try to rely on the damaged controls of the station.

Instead jumping with joy, people who eagerly waited for the reveal are giving the title a cold shoulder, because the game was rumored to be shooter title for PC and consoles but then turned out to be a mobile app that no one asked for.

Yes, the return of Amanda Ripley is really exciting for the fans that played the previous game but they wanted to play the new game on available major gaming platform and bringing the game on mobile after all this hype can simply turn out to be another greedy cashgrab attempt.

Alien: Blackout, a direct sequel to Alien: Isolation will be coming soon on App Store, Google Play and Amazon App Store for playing on mobile devices priced $4.99 only. FoxNext has associated themselves with D3 Go, Theory Interactive and Rival Games for the project.

James Wan Exits Resident Evil Movie Reboot

"Aquaman" director James Wan is no longer producing the upcoming Resident Evil Reboot movie for Constantin Films.

It was only a month ago, when we heard news of screenwriter Greg Russo has submitted his complete draft for the upcoming Resident Evil movie reboot to Constantin Films that is supposed to be produced by James Wan (Aquaman, The Conjuring).

It would have been a great fun for the curious audience to see how this successful director influences the movie with his classic style of horror but according to a recent report, Wan is no longer producing the upcoming film of RE franchise.

Wan was actually somewhat frustrated that the possibility of his involvement to the project was announced prematurely. In an interview with Bloody Disgusting, Wan cleared out that he is not doing it anymore as it has been dropped and then said the following.

It’s kind of annoying when things come and go, or things never came in the first place. I hate it when my projects get announced. It makes it seem like I’m attached to a lot of things when in fact I’m not necessarily doing so many things. A lot of my stuff just get announced and I don’t want them to be announced but people love to announce them.

Even though Wan is out from the anticipated project, he is still attached to do a remake of South Korean zombie apocalypse action thriller Train to Busan and wishes to do proper justice to it, because it is a very beloved property to him.

He is currently busy with his upcoming DC Extended Universe superhero movie Aquaman, which is inbound for December 21 and his company Atomic Monster will start working on Swamp Thing series for DC Universe right away.

RELATED: New Doom Movie in Development

Shortly after the end of Resident Evil movie franchise by director Paul W.S. Anderson (Alien vs. Predator, Death Race) directed and actress Milla Jovovich (The Fifth Element, Ultraviolet) with the release of Resident Evil: The Final Chapter, a horror-centric reboot was announced.

RE movies had a six movie run that has grossed over $1 billion worldwide collectively. Even though Greg Russo wrote a script that will take the series back to the roots of horror just as the studio is interested in but he would very much like them to take a Texas Chainsaw Massacre-style approach.

Trevor Belmont of Netflix's Castlevania Gets His Own Statue

The success of Netflix's Castlevania animated series is getting new PVC collectible statue for Trever Belmont in 2019.

You can tell that the collaboration of showrunner Adi Shankar (Dredd, The Grey) and comic-book writer Warren Ellis (Astonishing X-Men: Xenogenesis, Iron Man: Extremis) worked pretty well for Netflix's Castlevania TV series that they ran it for two seasons and renewed for another.

Based on the action-adventure gothic horror Konami game Castlevania III: Dracula's Curse from 1989, the show ha reinvigorated the franchise in gaming and has now led to production of cool collectibles of protagonist Trevor Belmont.

Renowned for creating various pop culture action figures and fan-favorite replicas, Diamond Choose Toys decided to cash in the success of the show and come up with a PVC statue for the whip wielding monster hunter from Belmont clan.

The early look that they have just revealed is a full-color, nearly nine inches tall PVC figure of Trevor in a window box, designed by Caesar and sculpted by Rocco Tartamella. From December 19th, the statue will be up for pre-order and will be priced $49.99 only when it arrives on store in summer 2019.

Alien: Blackout May be Next Alien Game

20th Century Fox trademarks the name "Alien: Blackout" for a possible upcoming video game title in the making.

After the science fiction horror franchise of Aliens began its journey back in 1979, it saw many sequel movies, crossovers with Predator film series, and most frequently adapted into comic-books by Dark Horse Comics publications and video game media for a several decades now.

It stepped into the world of video games in 1982 as maze game based on the original movie and got a dozen of releases on different platforms. Some recent developments from 20th Century Fox studio suggest that we are in for a new Alien game soon.

RELATED: FoxNext to Develop New Alien Video Game

The title Alien: Blackout as recently been trademarked by Fox on the World Intellectual Property Organization website, where it clearly states to be a video game property and definitely not an upcoming movie or TV show.

Back in January, it was revealed that FoxNext Games is about to work on a new AAA-Alien shooter title for PC and consoles in association with Cold Iron Studios, which will deliver a total action-packed experience full of Xenomorphs to all of the fans.

Also, there are speculations that very soon the game could even be announced at The Game Awards 2018. This rumor is powered by a recent photo posted by video game legend Hideo Kojima on Twitter during his tour at the 20th Century Fox office and the official Twitter account for TGA responds to it as well.

Another interesting part is that The Game Awards has been marketing this year's event with a tagline "Worlds Will Change" right next to a "W" logo. Some enthusiastic fans over the internet suggest this to be the Weyland-Yutani Corporation logo from Alien universe.

The similarities between the logo could be purely coincidental but it seems highly suspicious when the Twitter handle for The Game Awards responds to Kojima with their "Worlds Will Change" slogan in a cryptic manner of reply.



RELATED: Devil May Cry Animated Series Confirmed

The closest and the most recent release from the series are Aliens: Colonial Marines and Alien: Isolation. The former took place right after the events of James Cameron's Aliens movie from 1986, which was gravely bashed by fans for a very poor AI as a result of a typo in code.

The latter came out after a year later as a first-person-shooter survival horror game from developer Creative Assembly and publisher Sega, which somehow managed to encapsulate the suspense and claustrophobic settings of the franchise right.

Aside from the recently title, we do not know any other news or information about the story of the game or whatsoever. However, now that 20th Century Fox has secured the trademark for them, we hope to hear more about the game soon and probably on December 6, at The Game Awards 2018.

If Hideo Kojima is really involved in the Alien: Blackout project, then there is a chance that the series may find redemption into the video game media after so many botched attempt to bring the Alien horde from the furthest corner of the galaxy to your preferred gaming platform.

Resident Evil Movie Reboot to Be Based on Resident Evil 7

Screenwriter Greg Russo revealed that he took inspiration from Resident Evil 7 for the script of Resident Evil movie reboot.

Long before the Paul W.S. Anderson (Alien vs. Predator, Death Race) directed and Milla Jovovich (The Fifth Element, Ultraviolet) starrer Resident Evil movie franchise ended with Resident Evil: The Final Chapter, there was announcement for a series reboot.

Although Anderson is not returning to direct again, Constantin Films are handling the project with screenwriter Greg Russo readying drafts and to be directed by James Wan (Aquaman, The Conjuring), which could be a delight to horror fans in general.

Russo has recently opened up in an interview about his writing process and how he took inspirations to follow Capcom's lead to re-inventing the series. One of the main aspects of that motto is to go back to the roots of horror in the first place for him.

For me it was very clear cut that I wanted to go back and make it scary again like a horror film in terms of the classic James Wan style so that was the pitch, going back and looking what made the games scary in the first place so yea Resident Evil 7 was a bit of a touchstone for my draft.

For years, fans have been complaining about the RE movies from director Anderson for moving far from the horror and making over-the-top action flicks. What they cannot deny that whether or not they were crappy movies, they made a ton of money and thankfully came to an end.

Though Russo did enjoy the films, but he believes that RE franchise has always prioritized the elements of horror first and then focused on action. And that is why; he chose to take writing inspiration from the terrifying 2017 game.

RELATED: Resident Evil 7 Ending Explained

He would personally love to see a Resident Evil film made in Texas Chainsaw Massacre-style and centered on Baker Family. Then he wants Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson to jump in the middle as Chris Redfield and punch boulders for the ending scene.

Greg Russo has already handed over his draft to Constantin Films and looks like they are pretty content with what he came up with. James Wan is also producing the Resident Evil movie reboot and we expect him to come up with his classic style of horror.
