Alien: Isolation Ripley and Crew

Earlier this month it was revealed that anyone who pre-orders the upcoming video game Alien: Isolation would be given special bonus missions where they would be able to play as some of the characters from Ridley Scott’s original Alien, voiced by the original actors, including Sigourney Weaver‘s Ellen Ripley.

A new preview video for the game has been released online in which these actors talk about the original movie and the game, including chats with Weaver, Tom Skerritt, Yaphet Kotto, Veronica Cartwright, and Harry Dean Stanton with a classic old guy moment. You can watch it below.

‘Alien: Isolation’ Pre-Order Bonus Missions Will Be DLC Later; New Trailer Released

Alien: Isolation Ripley and Crew

A few days ago, it was revealed that those who pre-order the upcoming video game Alien: Isolation would receive special pre-order bonus missions involving the likenesses and voices of most of the cast of the 1979 classic movie that heavily inspired the game, Ridley Scott’s Alien, including Sigourney Weaver as Ripley.

While the thought of playing a very promising looking game as these iconic characters is extremely exciting, the general consensus on the announcement has been—and is almost every time similarly awesome exclusive pre-order bonuses are announced—that it’s not cool to force people to pay for the game in advance just to gain access to content.

But, as is usually the case, it was assumed that the two Alien bonus missions would still be made available to everyone at some point, and this has been confirmed in a statement released by SEGA. You can read the statement and watch your favorite Alien characters in video game form in the newly released trailer below.

Alien: Isolation Ripley and Crew

As if everything that we’ve seen of Alien: Isolation wasn’t exciting enough for fans of Ridley Scott’s 1979 horror Alien, now comes word that Sigourney Weaver and others will also be reprising their roles from the original movie for the new game.

Everyone who pre-orders Isolation will get a special bonus mission dubbed “Crew Expendable.” In it, you can play as either Ripley (voiced by Weaver), Dallas (voiced by Tom Skerritt), or Parker (Yaphet Kotto). Also appearing is Lambert (Veronica Cartwright), Brett (Harry Dean Stanton), and Ash (using Ian Holm‘s likeness but not voice).

Those who pre-order the game at Gamestop will get this bonus as well as a second exclusive bonus mission titled “Last Survivor.” You can learn more about both below.

E3 2014: New ‘Alien: Isolation’ Gameplay Shows Combat, Weapons, Stealth

Alien: Isolation E3 2014 Trailer

We’ve already seen more than enough to be excessively excited about Alien: Isolation, but some of the team from developer Creative Assembly paid a visit to E3 2014 to show off some new gameplay goodness to help you maintain maximum excitement until the game is released on October 7th.

From the start, one of the big selling points of the game was that it was not your typical run-and-gun Alien game where you’d constantly be firing weapons at attacking Xenomorphs. Instead, the focus was on stealth and survival and avoiding the alien creature at all costs. But that doesn’t mean that Isolation is without combat completely, as you might have thought. In addition to the alien, there’s also other humans and the androids known as Synthetics—some of which will be helpful, others neutral, and some will be hostile, forcing you to defend yourself.

In the gameplay demo brought to E3, you’ll see a bit of the combat and weaponry you’ll have to fight off attackers or possibly try to deter the alien itself, as well as plenty of the stealth options players will be using. You can watch that video as well as a new trailer below.

Alien: Isolation Video Game

A new video game based on the hit Alien movie franchise is on the way! I know, I know. This is not something that has gone well in the past. But stick with me for a bit.

The new game is titled Alien: Isolation, and it goes back to the roots of what made Ridley Scott’s 1979 original classic so terrifying. Instead of running around shooting aliens, as you have in the previous game attempts, this game is a survival horror. There is only one alien. THE alien. And you do not want to come face to face with it.

Continue below to read a description of the game and see the first trailer, as well as a lengthy chat about the game with more peeks at the gameplay.
