Ripley Gets Added to Alien: Isolation’s Cast!

SEGA and Twentieth Century Fox seem to be just as excited for a “good” Aliens game as we are. With the prospect of such a game being released, it would make sense for them to create pre-order bonuses. That said, I didn’t expect to hear the voices of key cast members of the original film…

Those who pre-order Alien: Isolation will get two bonus missions, each featuring the voices of Sigourney Weaver (Ellen Ripley), Tom Skerritt (Dallas), Veronica Cartwright (Lambert), Harry Dean Stanton (Brett), Yaphet Kotto (Parker) and Ian Holm (Ash, likeness and sound-alike). These two missions allow gamers to relive two classic scenes from the movie. Awesome!

“Working with the original cast has been an incredible experience,” said Alistair Hope, Creative Lead on Alien: Isolation. “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.”

I guess Ian was too busy with the Hobbit to join the others. Still, this is a great addition for fans even if they don’t pre-order; I’m sure the missions will be released as DLC sometime after launch. Those who do pre-order will be upgraded to the Nostromo Edition, which includes the “Crew Expendable” DLC. Players will play as one of three surviving crewmembers (Ellen, Dallas, or Parker) moments after Brett’s death. You’ll have to make it from the habitation deck down through engineering in order to meet with Lambert and Ash to plan how to lure the Alien into the ship’s airlock. In addition, those who pre-order at GameStop will exclusively receive the “Last Survivor” DLC which follows Ripley as she tries to escape on the Narcissus after activating the Nostromo’s self-destruct sequence.


Alien: Isolation will be available on October 7th for the Xbox 360/One, PS3/4, and PC. Till then, we’ll continue to provide coverage on all things relating to Xenomorphs!
