Alien Cast Reunites for New Video Game
Alien: Isolation just got a lot cooler. SEGA and Twentieth Century Fox Consumer Products have announced an exclusive pre-order bonus for the game that features the vocal talent and likenesses of key cast members from the original 1979 Alien film. Sigourney Weaver, Tom Skerritt, Veronica Cartwright, Harry Dean Stanton, Yaphet Kotto, and Ian Holm are set to star in two downloadable bonus missions which will allow you to relive two classic scenes from the movie.
“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 Alien: Isolation, you'll get a free upgrade to the Nostromo Edition which includes the bonus content entitled "Crew Expendable." Players can choose to play as one of three surviving crewmembers (Ellen Ripley, Dallas, or Parker), only moments after Brett's death at the jaws of the creature. Players will be able to explore the Nostromo and coordinate with Lambert and Ash to lure the Alien into the ship's airlock. Pre-ordering at GameStop will also unlock "Last Survivor" in which players pick up the story as Ripley tries to escape on the Narcissus. After you hear the screams of Lambert and Parker, you'll navigate back through the Nostromo in order to activate the self-destruct sequence before retracing your steps back to the Narcissus shuttle to escape.
Alien: Isolation is a first-person survival horror game set for release on October 7th for Xbox One, Playstation 4, Windows PC, Xbox 360, and Playstation 3.
