SEGA have announced Alien: Isolation’s Survivor Mode, complete with a supporting series of five challenging add-on packs that will be available to purchase from October 28th 2014, individually or through the Alien: Isolation Season Pass.
Survivor Mode is said to challenge players to participate in a one-to-one confrontation with the universe’s deadliest killer, deep within the bowels of Sevastopol Station. With limited resources on each map and a hunter on the loose, players will need to take advantage of every item they find to help them complete a unique set of objectives which will ultimately lead to their escape.
Alien: Isolation will ship with a Survivor Mode demo featuring one playable map, ‘Basement’. On October 28th, the first of the five Survivor Mode add-on packs will be available for purchase featuring three new maps, each with their own set objective and challenges, a new playable character and a variety of enemy types between you and your escape. Over the following months, four more add-on packs will release, each featuring a new playable character, and a mix of new maps and game modes to challenge even the most proficient player.
Also available to purchase from launch will be the Alien: Isolation Season Pass, offering access to all five Survivor Mode add-on packs, at up to a 25% discount. All add-on content packs are scheduled to be released by March 2015.
Alien: Isolation will be available from October 7th, 2014 and all this content just sounds like a money making load of old bullshit. So, we’ll forgive you for not getting over excited at a game mode on a game you’re yet to play!
