“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 appearances in an Alien video game. Seeing them reprise those roles after 35 years was an unforgettable experience.”

For pre-orders in the UK, a free upgrade to the Nostromo Edition, which includes the bonus content Crew Expendable, will be available. Crew Expendable follows players as they play as one of 3 surviving crewmembers, only moments after Brett’s death at the jaws of the creature.
