  1. Uninstall Alien: Isolation from your PS4, being careful to retain your save games.
  2. Reinstall Alien: Isolation to your PS4.
  3. Download and install patch v1.01 from the PlayStation Network.
  4. Your game should now work correctly.

A new patch for PS4 will be released soon to address the original cut-scene issues.
