Alien: Isolation DLC Will Reunite Sigourney Weaver and the Original ‘Alien’ Cast

We were already intrigued by the Alien: Isolation video game back when it was just a story taking placing between Ridley Scott‘s ‘Alien‘ and James Cameron‘s ‘Aliens.’ But now it’s gone from having our curiosity to having our attention: the first batch of additional downloadable content for the game will allow players to relive iconic moments from the first film. Most importantly, this DLC will feature the vocal talents of the film’s original cast, with many of them reprising their roles for the first time in decades.

That’s right: the Alien: Isolation DLC will reunite Sigourney Weaver, Tom Skerritt, Veronica Cartwright, Harry Dean Stanton and Yaphet Kotto for the first time since 1979. The only two crew members of the doomed Nostromo who won’t be returning are John Hurt (because he’s already dead from, y’know, an alien bursting out of his chest) and Ian Holm, whose Ash will still play a role in the game.

This two-episode pack of DLC will be available to anyone who pre-orders the game. The first episode tasks the player with attempting to flush the alien toward an airlock and kill it. The second takes place during the film’s climax and has the player, as Weaver’s Ellen Ripley, desperately attempting to make it to the shuttle before the Nostromo self-destructs. Like the main Alien: Isolation game, the focus will be on horror instead of combat, utilizing a single Xenomorph who reacts and responds to the player instead of following a programmed route.

For the full details of the DLC (and well as a few quotes from the developers), head on over to IGN. Alien: Isolation will hit shelves on October 7 on every major console.
