Corporate Lockdown is the first of five add-on packs for Alien: Isolation and it releases next week.

The first drop contains three new maps for the game’s Survivor Mode and each of the challenge pack provides a new perspective on the events on-board Sevastopol Station “in the days before the arrival of the Weyland-Yutani team.”

It comes with a a new playable character, a unique set of objectives and a new game mode.

Here’s the synopsis for Corporate Lockdown straight from SEGA:

“Seegson Executive Ransome has learnt that he has been abandoned by his paymasters. Knowing that the Torrens is on the way, he decides to make his escape and hitch a ride on board, taking decoded Nostromo data with him. However, while escaping he wants to tie up a few loose ends.”

Across three new challenge maps, Severance, Scorched Earth and Loose Ends, players are challenged to compete against others through the game’s online leaderboards, to escape the station in the fastest possible time or attain the top score “through numerous side quests and hidden bonus objectives.”

New to Corporate Lockdown is the addition of Gauntlet Mode where players are challenged to “top the Gauntlet Mode leaderboards” by completing all three challenge maps back-to-back without dying. Good luck with that.

Corporate Lockdown will be available to download from October 28 for $7.99/€6.99/£5.59 and will be followed by four more packs: Trauma, Safe Haven, Lost Contact and The Trigger.

Each will feature a new playable character alongside a mix of new maps, objectives and game modes to challenge.

You can also buy the Season Pass which comes with a 25% discount. All add-on packs are scheduled to be released by March 2015.
