Sega has announced that cast members of Ridley Scott’s 1979 cult classic Alien, will reunite once again aboard the Nostromo, in two downloadable bonus packs for the upcoming sci-fi horror game, Alien: Isolation.
All pre-orders for Alien: Isolation will get a free upgrade to the Nostromo Edition, which includes the bonus content “Crew Expendable”. Currently this is the only way to purchase the bonus content, however it’s likely that SEGA will release it as separate DLC sometime after the game has been released.
“Crew Expendable” will allow players to relive classic scenes from the movie and will feature the voices and likenesses of Sigourney Weaver (Ellen Ripley), Tom Skerritt (Dallas), Veronica Cartwright (Lambert), Harry Dean Stanton (Brett), Yaphet Kotto (Parker) and Ian Holm (Ash).
Taking place only moments after Brett’s death at the jaws of the creature, players can choose to take on the role of Ellen Ripley, Dallas, or Parker, coordinating their efforts with Lambert and Ash in order to lure the Alien into the ships airlock and out into space. The content will allow players the freedom to explore the Nostromo from the habitation deck down to engineering.
“Working with the original cast has been an incredible experience,” said Alistair Hope, Creative Lead on Alien: Isolation. “It was important to us to have the key original cast members reprise their roles in order to perfectly capture the atmosphere of the movie. For some of the original cast, this is their first appearance in an Alien video game. Seeing them reprise those roles after 35 years was an unforgettable experience.”
Furthermore, fans who pre-order Alien: Isolation at “select retailers” in the UK and Europe and at GameStop in North America, will receive an additional content pack called “Last Survivor” playing through the story as Ripley tries to activate the self-destruct sequence and escape on the Narcissus.
Alien: Isolation will be available from October 7th, on the Xbox 360, Xbox One, PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, and PC
