Alien: Isolation pre-order bonus sees the return of Ellen Ripley

Creative Assembly has unveiled via PlayStation Blog the pre-order bonus for the hotly anticipated horror title, Alien: Isolation.

“Crew Expendable” sees players taking control of Dallas, Parker, or the iconic Ellen Ripley from the movie Alien following the events of the deaths of Brett and Kane. Not much else is known about the pre-order bonus, though it will be interesting to see if the original cast will reprise their roles in the game, especially that of Sigourney Weaver’s now-iconic Ellen Ripley.

Alien: Isolation takes place after the events of the 1979 sci-fi/horror classic and sees Ripley’s daughter board the USS Nostromo to find out what happened to her mother and its crew. Alien: Isolation release this October for the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC. 

Going back to its movie horror roots, Alien: Isolation looks set to bring the Alien franchise back on track after the critically-mauled Aliens: Colonial Marines.
