Alien: Isolation Pre-Order Bonus Brings Original Cast Back Together
Ellen Ripley, Lambert, Brett, Parker, Ash the android and Captain Dallas are back in these new pre-order bonuses for Alien: Isolation.
Sega have announced that the cast of Ridley Scott’s original 1979 classic, ‘Alien’, have returned to contribute to the pre-order bonuses of Creative Assembly’s Alien: Isolation. This means that the voices and likenesses of Sigourney Weaver, Tom Skerritt, Veronica Cartwright, Harry Dean Stanton, Yaphet Kotto and Ian Holm are going to be included with Alien: Isolation in two exclusive DLC missions that have players reenacting some of our favorite scenes from the movie. We should note that Ian Holm, who plays Ash the android, will have his likeness in the bonus content but will be played by a sound-alike voice actor.
“Working with the original cast has been an incredible experience,” said Alistair Hope, Alien: Isolation’s creative lead, in a statement. “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 limited edition Nostromo Edition of Alien: Isolation will have the “Crew Expendable” mission. You get to play as either Ellen, Dallas or Parker in an attempt to lure the alien out into the Nostromo’s airlock. GameStop pre-orders will also receive the “Last Survivor” mission, where you play as Ellen Ripley as she tries to self destruct the Nostromo and escape to the Narcissus escape vessel, just like the last ten minutes of the movie. Expect these exclusives when Alien: Isolation arrives on Oct. 7 for Xbox 360, Xbox One, PC, PlayStation 3 and PlayStation 4.
