The original Alien cast members reunite for Alien: Isolation pre-order missions

Posted on July 9, 2014 AT 06:51am

Sigourney Weaver and other key members of the original cast of Ridley Scott’s 1979 film Alien are reuniting in two Alien: Isolation missions that will be available as pre-order bonuses.

Sigourney Weaver (Ellen Ripley), Tom Skerritt (Dallas), Veronica Cartwright (Lambert), Harry Dean Stanton (Brett), Yaphet Kotto (Parker) and Ian Holm (Ash—only for likeness) have all reunited for two missions.

The first mission “Crew Expendable” is available with the day one Nostromo Edition, which will be available as an automatic upgrade with all pre-orders, and will see players take control of either Ellen Ripley, Parker or Dallas as they attempt to lure the Alien out of the ship’s airlock. Depending on the character you choose you will have a different experience and start with different resources.

The second mission “Last Survivor” is only available from select retailers, and sees Ripley activate the Nostromo’s self-destruct sequence before attempting to reach the Narcissus shuttle to escape.

“Working with the original cast has been an incredible experience,” Alien: Isolation creative lead Alistair Hope said. “It was important to us to have the key original cast members reprise their roles in order to perfectly capture the atmosphere of the movie. For some of the original cast, this is their first appearance in an Alien video game. Seeing them reprise those roles after 35 years was an unforgettable experience.”

Alien: Isolation is set to launch October 7 for PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, Xbox 360, Xbox One, and PC.
