Don't fancy pre-ordering Alien: Isolation just to nab its awesome 1979-era DLC? Not a problem, as SEGA has promised the DLC will be made available after the game is out.
"It's genuinely been great to see the reaction to The Crew Expendable and Last Survivor pre-order bonus content we announced yesterday and how excited you all are to re-experience those classic scenes from the original movie with our Alien," the statement on the official Alien: Isolation Facebook pagereads.
"However, some of you have been asking if the two pieces of content are only available through pre-order or if we'll be releasing them at a later date as well. So, I can confirm today that we do plan to release both Crew Expendable and Last Survivor at a later date and we'll have more details for you guys on that shortly."
It was announced yesterday that everyone who pre-orders the game will get a free upgrade to the ‘Nostromo Edition’, which includes the Crew Expendable side mission. Taking place moments after the death of Brett (Harry Dean Stanton) in Ridley Scott's 1979 flick, Crew Expendable sees players assuming the role of Ripley (Sigourney Weaver), Dallas (Tom Skerritt) or Parker (Yaphet Kotto), as they try to flush the alien from the Nostromo's air vents and into the airlock. Weaver, Skerritt and Katto have all lent their voice talents and likenesses to the DLC.
The Last Survivor DLC will be available through "select retailers" depending on territory. Set during the film's finale, players will take on the role of Ripley as she tries to activate the Nostromo's self-destruct sequence and reach the Narcissus shuttle in order to escape.
Alien: Isolation will be available from October 7th on Xbox One, PlayStation 4, PC, Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3.
