Original Movie Cast Returns in Alien: Isolation Pre-Order Bonus
If you’ve ever wanted to step into Ellen Ripley’s shoes, now’s your chance. Creative Assembly Community Manager Ngan Nguyen announced via the Playstation Blog, a pre-order bonus for Alien: Isolation in the form of an additional mission called “Crew Expendable.” This bonus content will see the return of Ellen Ripley as well as the Nostromo Crew from Alien.
This pre-order bonus content will have players controlling either Ship Captain Dallas, Parker or Ripley herself just after the deaths of Brett (the guy who died with Jonesy watching) and Kane (John Hurt’s character). It will be up to the player to escape the Alien and presumably reenact the events of the film. Crew members Lambert and Ash will be also be present, as per the movie. Perhaps Ripley and Ash’s encounter in the film will be a boss fight.
Alien: Isolation is scheduled to release on Oct. 7 for the PC, Xbox 360, Xbox One, Playstation 3 and Playstation 4. The game is being developed by Creative Assembly, notable for their work on the Total War series. Alien: Isolation is being published by Sega, who also published last year’s dreadful Aliens: Colonial Marines.
