Alien: Isolation Survivor Mode DLC Plans

SEGA announces a series of five Survivor Mode add-on packs that will be released for Alien: Isolation, either individually, or as part of the season pass for Creative Assembly's upcoming survival/horror shooter. Here's the skinny on the packs and the pass:
SEGA® of America, Inc., SEGA® Europe, Ltd. and Twentieth Century Fox Consumer Products today officially announced Alien: Isolation™’s Survivor Mode, and a supporting series of five challenging and terrifying Survivor Mode add-on packs available to purchase from October 28, 2014, either individually or collectively through the Alien: Isolation Season Pass, now available from GameStop* in North America.

First revealed at this year’s Electronic Entertainment Expo (E3) in Los Angeles, Survivor Mode is an exciting new game mode for Alien: Isolation which challenges 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.

“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.

This game is gonna be crap. Therefore, DLC will also be crap. Case closed.

More hope for this one than The Evil Within. There can be so many enthousiastic previews, if the gameplay vids I'm seeing are crap... that's all I need to know.

I was excited about this game, but now not so much. I hate Season passes and DLC's so much, and even more when they are announced before the game is even released !!!

blame the publisher on this... the developers on the other hand seemingly did a fine job on the game when i last tried it out at an earlier press event.

This mode doesn't seem to justify a $30 season pass. $10, maybe, but $30? Not a chance. Then again, season passes are never worth buying at full price and they go on sale pretty quickly. At $10, most season passes are a good deal.

Yeah I can't think of a single "season pass" I've ever been satisfied with at full price.

Better now than after the game has been released (and maybe bought). This way I know not to bother until they release a complete edition.
I welcome the advance warning.

As good as this looks, going by the history of Alien(s) games, you'd be wise to wait for reviews.

True. Same goes for Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor and the bad rep LOTR games have. Still, like Middle-earth, the gameplay footage I've seen looks very promising so I'm being optimistic. Never optimistic enough to pre-order, though. There's never a good reason to pre-order a game anyway. It's not like they could get out of stock. People who pre-order should really look in the mirror and ask themselves -- out loud! -- "...why?".

As for DLC / Season Passes... it's not necessarily a bad thing imo. As long as the budget for DLC is SEPERATE from the base game's budget and the base game's budget isn't negatively influenced by it in any way... well, the more content the better. The question is if this is the case. This I don't know :\

It's best not to think of Season Passes as DLC pre-orders and simply buy them once all the DLC is out and the Season Pass is available at a good price. The Season Pass for Bioshock Infinite, for example, has dropped as low as $5 before, which is a fantastic deal for the DLC you get.

There's nothing forcing you to buy Season Passes before the DLC is even out. If Season Passes allow me to eventually get a bunch of quality DLC for a low price, I'm all for them. Hell, I wish EA would have offered Season Passes for the ME games. If they had, I probably would have been able to get them all for $10 total, as opposed to the $50+ it costs to buy them individually.

Screw "Season Pass", there isn't a g-damn video game season. This is "We're going to throw out some extra stuff for you to buy at launch, then we're likely going to throw out some more stuff in a couple months, if you guys pre-order enough of it, otherwise we'll just refund your money". This is Sega saying "we hate our customers".

Right, so wait for the all inclusive bundle version on Steam summer sale. Got it.

Not exactly an announcement that makes you want to pre-order the game guys.


That's it in a nutshell.


Yeah, fucking hell not 1, not 2, not 3, but 5, FIVE DLC add-on packs. Why dont they gouge my eyeballs out while they are at it and sell em back to me when they feel the time is right....motherfuckers.
I have a nifty blue line!
