The first of Sega and Creative Assembly‘s five planned add-on packs for Alien: Isolation will be available before the end of this month. ‘Corporate Lockdown’ gives the player a new character in Seegson Executive Ransome to embody as they tackle three additional challenge maps in Survivor’s Mode, and perhaps attempt to complete all three back-to-back, without dying, in the newly provided Gauntlet mode.
Ransome realises that his employers have abandoned him upon Sevastopol Station. Set during the days just before the Torrens’ arrival, Ransome decides to make a daring escape that would see him board the incoming Weyland-Yutani ship, all the while carrying decoded Nostromo data (those who’ve played the first hour of Alien: Isolation are piecing this together as they read it). However, he decides to take care of loose-ends with what little time remains before the crew’s ETA. The three maps, ‘Severance’, ‘Scorched Earth’ and ‘Loose Ends’ present unique objectives during the process of escaping the station. Side quests, as well as some hidden bonus objectives, are also included.
‘Corporate Lockdown’ will be downloadable from October 28 for MSRP $7.99/€6.99/£5.59, with four more add-on packs to come in ‘Trauma’, ‘Safe Haven’, ‘Lost Contact’ and ‘The Trigger’. Each will follow the same format in regards to content; new character, new maps, new mode. If you are keen to explore the Sevastopol to the fullest extent, then save 20% by purchasing the Season Pass. All DLC will be released by March, 2015. Just remember, “Nobody’s clean; everyone’s got a little dirt on them. You just gotta know how to use it to make them squirm.”
