Sega announced a unique pre-order bonus for “Alien: Isolation” on Wednesday and it is something fans of the original Ridey Scott “Alien” movie should enjoy. The PS4, Xbox One, PS3, Xbox 360 and PC survival horror game will come with the “Nostromo Edition” that features original cast members reliving two missions based on the original movie.
Sigourney Weaver (Ripley), Tom Skerritt (Dallas), Veronica Cartwright (Lambert), Harry Dean Stanton (Brett) and Yaphet Kotto (Parker) will all lend their voices and likenesses to the game. Ian Holm (Ash), however, will have his likeness used but be played by a different voice actor.
The extra missions take place on the Nostromo instead of the space station of the main “Alien: Isolation” campaign. The first mission is called “Crew Expendable” and lets players choose between Ripley, Dallas or Parker. The mission is set just after Brett is killed by the alien and players must coordinate with Lambert and Ash to try and coax it into an airlock so it can be blown into outer space.
The second mission is called “Last Survivor” and takes place during the classic ending sequence as Ripley sets the self-destruct sequence for the ship and then tries to escape. Presumably, Jones the cat will be involved too.
“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.”
The “Crew Expendable” mission will be available to anyone who pre-orders “Alien: Isolation” ahead of its Oct. 7 release. However, “Last Survivor” will only be available when pre-ordering the PS4, Xbox One, PS3, Xbox 360 and PC game from GameStop.
