Alien movie fans will be jumping for joy as the original cast members come together for these rather special DLC missions.
The vocal talent and likenesses of the 1979 Alien movie are all appearing in the Nostromo Edition DLC. Sigourney Weaver (Ellen Ripley), Tom Skerritt (Dallas), Veronica Cartwright (Lambert), Harry Dean Stanton (Brett), Yaphet Kotto (Parker) and Ian Holm (Ash, likeness and sound-alike) are all taking part.
“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.”
If you pre-order the game now, there’s a free upgrade to the Nostromo Edition which includes the bonus content “Crew Expendable” where you play as one of three surviving crew members moments after Brett’s death. Playable characters include Ellen Ripley, Dallas or Parker as they explore the Nostromo from habitation deck down through engineering, coordinating their efforts with Lambert and Ash to lure the Alien into the ship’s airlock.
The second bonus mission is called “Last Survivor” and players will join the action as Ripley attempts to escape on the Narcissus.
If you loved the movie or are simply a bit of an Alien fan then it’s probably worth grabbing that free upgrade with a pre-order.
Alien: Isolation will be available on 7 October.
