Alien: Isolation has such awesome-sounding pre-order bonus DLC that it’s ignited the whole “pre-order bonuses are teh debbil” debate. But don’t fret! You’ll be able to obtain it through other means.
Alien: Isolation pre-orders earn an automatic upgrade to the Nostromo Edition, which includes the Crew Expandable DLC, featuring the cast of the original 1979 movie.
If you pre-order from some retailers, you’ll also score the Last Survivor mission, in which Ripley must escape the Nostromo.
Obviously, you want both of these things more than anything else in the world, but maybe pre-orders aren’t your bag. Maybe you don’t agree with pre-orders. Maybe you don’t like exclusive content. Maybe you’re just broke.
Happily: Sega’s got you covered, according to a recent Facebook post:
“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. 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,” community manager Nee wrote.
Alien: Isolation is coming to PC, PlayStation 3, PS4, Xbox 360 and Xbox One in October.
