Sega and Creative Assembly have just announced that the pre-order bonus content for Alien: Isolation will feature the vocal talent and likenesses of the original cast for Alien. This includes Tom Skerritt (Dallas), Veronica Cartwright (Lambert), Harry Dean Stanton (Brett), Yaphet Kotto (Parker), Ian Holm (Ash) and of course, Sigourney Weaver as Ellen Ripley. The pre-order content will allow players to visit the Nostromo and relive two classic scenes from the movie.
Anyone in the UK who pre-orders the game will get a free upgrade to the Nostromo Edition, which includes the bonus content, Crew Expendable. Players can choose to play as one of three surviving crew members - Ellen Ripley, Dallas or Parker - and explore the Nostromo. In addition, consumers who pre-order at select retailers will also receive "Last Survivor" in which players pick up the story as Ripley tries to escape on the Narcissus.
In the official press release, Alistair Hope, Creative Lead on the project, stated that: "Working with the original cast has been an incredible experience. 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."
Alien: Isolation will be available to PC, PS3, PS4, Xbox 360 and Xbox One on October 7.
