I will definitely be getting Alien: Isolation for PS4
Wow! I saw a cg trailer for Alien: Isolation and it looked great. It was meant to convey the idea that, as Amanda Ripley (daughter of Ellen Ripley), you have to run around trying to scrounge, hack, and sneak your way through an eerie space station, all the while trying to stay two steps ahead of the Alien.
While the trailer looked great, and the game has received tons of pre-release accolades, there is something else that snapped my attention to this title....due out October 7th: "Crew Expendable": an add on campaign that allows you to play as Ripley, Parker, or Dallas aboard the USCSS Nostromo. I guess it might be a way to allow you to alter history, and see if you can help the crew of the Nostromo survive its vicious passenger.
While the likenesses of each cg character are astonishing....the real kicker is that they actually managed to get 5 of the 7 original actors to reprise their roles for the add on campaign. Sigourney Weaver, Tom Skerritt, Yaphet Kotto, Veronica Cartwright, and Harry Dean Stanton have returned to the Nostromo as the voices of Ripley, Dallas, Parker, Lambert, and Brett. What little I've seen of the set pieces and sets look stunning!
If the game play is everything that folks have been reported as saying at PAX14, then this could finally be the ALIEN interactive experience we've been waiting for.
Alien: Isolation launches October 7, 2014 on PS4, PS3, PC, Xbox One, and Xbox 360.
