Coming next week.
Sega has long promised that 'Alien: Isolation' would be getting add-ons that put players in new situations that let them compete for spots on the leaderboard. The first such add-on pack, 'Corporate Lockdown' drops next week on October 28th and includes three new maps, a new playable character, and a new game mode. This new pack takes another dark look at the business first philisophy put forth in the first film, and like the main game, is very tempting for fans.
In 'Corporate Lockdown', Seegson Executive Ransome has learnt that he has been abandoned by his paymasters. Knowing that the Torrens is on the way, he decides to make his escape and hitch a ride on board, taking decoded Nostromo data with him. However, while escaping he wants to tie up a few loose ends… Across three new challenge maps, 'Severance', 'Scorched Earth' and 'Loose Ends', players are challenged to compete against others through Alien: Isolation’s online leaderboards, to escape the station in the fastest possible time or attain the top score through numerous side quests and hidden bonus objectives. New to 'Corporate Lockdown' is the addition of Gauntlet Mode where players are challenged to top the Gauntlet Mode leaderboards by completing all three challenge maps back-to-back without dying.
'Corporate Lockdown' will be available to download via online marketplaces for available platforms from October 28, priced at MSRP $7.99/€6.99/£5.59 and will be followed by four more packs: 'Trauma', 'Safe Haven', 'Lost Contact' and 'The Trigger'. Each will feature a new playable character alongside a mix of new maps, objectives and game modes to challenge even the most proficient player. Players wishing to explore every inch of Sevastopol Station can take advantage of the Alien: Isolation Season Pass, offering access to all five Survivor Mode add-on packs at up to a 25% discount. All add-on packs are scheduled to be released by March 2015.
