Sigourney Weaver and the cast of the original Alien movie will be playable in exclusive levels of Alien: Isolation – for those who pre-order the game before release.


Weaver (Ellen Ripley), Tom Skerritt (Dallas), Veronica Cartwright (Lambert), Harry Dean Stanton (Brett), Yaphet Kotto (Parker) and Ian Holm (Ash) will feature in two downloadable bonus missions based on the original movie.

Pre-order the game to upgrade to the Nostromo Edition, where the Crew Expendable content lets players lure the alien into the ship’s airlock.

Pre-order from “select retailers” and you’ll also get the Last Survivor mission, where Ripley must escape the Nostromo and into the Narcissus shuttle.

The game is out on October 7.
