A few days ago, it was revealed that those who pre-order the upcoming video game Alien: Isolation would receive special pre-order bonus missions involving the likenesses and voices of most of the cast of the 1979 classic movie that heavily inspired the game, Ridley Scott’s Alien, including Sigourney Weaver as Ripley.
While the thought of playing a very promising looking game as these iconic characters is extremely exciting, the general consensus on the announcement has been—and is almost every time similarly awesome exclusive pre-order bonuses are announced—that it’s not cool to force people to pay for the game in advance just to gain access to content.
But, as is usually the case, it was assumed that the two Alien bonus missions would still be made available to everyone at some point, and this has been confirmed in a statement released by SEGA. You can read the statement and watch your favorite Alien characters in video game form in the newly released trailer below.
It’s genuinely been great to see the reaction to The Crew Expendable and Last Survivor pre-order bonus content we announced yesterday and how excited you all are to re-experience those classic scenes from the original movie with our Alien. It’s been absolutely amazing for us at the Studio.
However, some of you have been asking if the two pieces of content are only available through pre-order or if we’ll be releasing them at a later date as well.
So, I can confirm today that we do plan to release both Crew Expendable and Last Survivor at a later date and we’ll have more details for you guys on that shortly.
