The original cast of the 1979 film Alien have been reunited for Alien: Isolation’s pre-order DLC. 

Sigourney Weaver will reprise her iconic role as Ellen Ripley for the first time in 17 years. She will be joined by Tom Skerritt (Dallas), Veronic Cartwright (Lambert), Harry Dean Stanton (Brett), and Yaphet Kotto (Parker).

The DLC contains two missions, both allowing players to relive classic scenes from the original movie.

Everyone who pre-orders the game will get a free upgrade to the ‘Nostromo Edition’, which includes the first of the two DLC missions, entitled “Crew Expendable”. Taking place moments after the death of Brett, it sees players assuming the role of Ripley, Dallas or Parker, as the crew of the Nostromo attempt to flush the alien from the air vents and into the ship's airlock. Depending on which character you choose, you'll have a slightly different perspective on events and will begin with different resources.

The second pre-order mission – “Last Survivor” – will be available through select retailers depending on territory. Set during the film's dramatic finale, you play as Ripley and must activate the Nostromo's self-destruct sequence and reach the Narcissus shuttle in order to escape.

This has no appeal to me whatsoever.

I just want to walk around the Nostromo. Give me a God Mode key, and let me stroll about.

Well yippy dippy doo mr anon! No one cares about anonymous negativity. I for one think, like Mr. Smash, that just walking around and exploring the ship would be awesome fun. The other day my son Max said, "Dad, what if Alien 3 & 4 was just a hibernation chamber nightmare that Ripley had after Aliens..." Gotta love that kid!

Your son is wise, Allen.

I like to pretend Alien3 is not Ripley, but just another character entirely.

I then pretend 4 never happened at all.
