6. Another Pre-Order Bonus Will Let You Control Ellen Ripley
The special “Ripley Edition” of Alien: Isolation will award players with a special mission that focuses purely on Ellen Ripley. “Last Survivor” places players in the shoes of Ellen during the finale of the original Alien film. You’ll be tasked with setting off the “Nostromo” space station self-destruct sequence and escape the shuttle via the Narcissus.
7. An Additional Mode Called Survival Mode Will Be Featured
Besides the main story campaign, Alien: Isolation will feature a Survivor Mode. This mode will place players onto various maps in which you’ll have to race against the clock and escape the alien on your tails. Once the game launches, it will come with one playable map (“Basement”). Over time, more Survivor Mode maps will become available as DLC.
8. The Game’s Season Pass Will Support the Game With Up to 6 Months of Additional Content
A Season Pass for the game has already been announced, which will give its recipients exclsuive access to all five Survivor Mode expansion maps and a 25-percent discount. SEGA has noted that this game will be supported with up to 6 months of additional DLC, which will all be released by March 2015.

The developers behind this release, The Creative Assembly, are known for producing a line of strategy RPG games. Their most notable titles (besides Alien: Isolation, of course) includes the Total War series, Viking: Battle for Asgard and Stormrise.
10. The Game’s Environment Will Reflect the Old Technology Spotted in the Old Aliens Films
In a cool nod to the look and decor of past films in the series, Alien: Isolation will feature the type of technology seen in that game’s timeline. This means you’ll come across 1970’s-esque computers that have monochrome displays and simple line graphics.
