Ripley The First: Alien Isolation DLC Recreates Movie Scenes

The gang are here!

Given the astonishing care and attention The Creative Assembly have put into recreating the feel of Alien in Alien: Isolation, mightn’t it be sort of nice to recreate a little of the movie? Well gosh golly, they’ve only gone and done that, making the original cast and the spaceship Nostromo. Crumbs, and they’ve got members of the cast to provide voices, even Sigourney Weaver as Ellen Ripley!

And the inevitable drawback for something so exciting: it’s for pre-order DLC missions, one of which will be exclusive to certain retailers too. At first, at least. Boo.

Weaver and the actors behind Dallas, Lambert, Brett, and Parker (Ian Holm is supposedly in the game anyway, so probably him too, but alas, it seems no John Hurt up the duff) are reunited 35 years after Alien came out to lend their voices to two DLC missions recreating snippets of the movie in a ‘what if?’ way, IGN say in their exclusive. A few more screens are over here.

The first mission comes after Brett snuffs it trying to catch Ripley’s cat, sending Ripley, Dallas or Parker into the vents to chase the alien into the airlock (which is how Dallas eats it in the film). That’ll be given to everyone who pre-orders. The second is playing Ripley setting off the Nostromo’s self-destruct then escaping to the shuttle, and you’ll only get it pre-ordering from certain places (a mystery for now, but let’s guess Game. It’s always Game, isn’t it?)

Initially, anyway. I’d be astonished if Sega don’t release both of these as plain old paid DLC for everyone at some point. Assuming they do, this sounds fair enough. They’re clearly not bits clipped out of the main game, and they’re scenes that wouldn’t get made otherwise. So sure.

Speaking of things people may need to wait for, our Brendy recently played with Isolation’s experimental Oculus Rift support. It’s only a prototype, is the official word.
