Twentieth Century Fox and SEGA have confirmed details of a special Survivor Mode in their upcoming console game, Alien: Isolation.
The game is based on the legendary Ridley Scott film and its sequels and takes place on a decommissioned trading station in the fringes of space where fear and panic have gripped the inhabitants.
In Survivor Mode players 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.
“At this year’s E3 and a number of subsequent events, we put the Survivor Mode demo into the hands of the world’s press and consumers and the reception was incredible,” said Al Hope, Creative Lead on Alien: Isolation.
“This is the game in its purest form; it’s you against the creature and it’s against the clock. It was just fantastic watching players leave the demo with a strange mix of joy, terror and relief at simply surviving, before jumping back in and try to tackle it in a different way to beat their time!”
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.
