As if everything that we’ve seen of Alien: Isolation wasn’t exciting enough for fans of Ridley Scott’s 1979 horror Alien, now comes word that Sigourney Weaver and others will also be reprising their roles from the original movie for the new game.
Everyone who pre-orders Isolation will get a special bonus mission dubbed “Crew Expendable.” In it, you can play as either Ripley (voiced by Weaver), Dallas (voiced by Tom Skerritt), or Parker (Yaphet Kotto). Also appearing is Lambert (Veronica Cartwright), Brett (Harry Dean Stanton), and Ash (using Ian Holm‘s likeness but not voice).
Those who pre-order the game at Gamestop will get this bonus as well as a second exclusive bonus mission titled “Last Survivor.” You can learn more about both below.
While it’s a bit of a shame that everyone who grabs a copy of Alien: Isolation, pre-order or not, will not have access to this bonus content (at least not right away—chances are both will be made available at some point down the road), they are indeed a cool nod to Scott’s original movie. Many of those who weren’t planning on pre-ordering surely will be now.
