In a post to the PlayStation Blog this morning, Creative Assembly Community Manager Ngan Nguyen took some time to discuss Survivor Mode in the upcoming survival horror Alien game, Alien: Isolation. If you haven’t heard, Survivor Mode is a time-based challenge that requires you to escape both a level and the Alien itself before the clock runs out. Terrifying, I know.
Check out what Mr. Nguyen had to say about Isolation’s newest mode below.
Survivor Mode is you versus the creature, against the clock and in a desperate bid for survival. With few resources on each map, players will have to take full advantage of what they can find to complete objectives and escape.
On October 7th, those brave enough to face the challenge can experience the first map of Survivor Mode — Basement — with their copy of Alien: Isolation.
And on October 28th, the first of five Survivor Mode add-on packs will be available to purchase, featuring three new maps. Each map has its own set objective, challenges, a variety of enemy types to deal with, and a new playable character to discover — plenty to sink your teeth in to.
As an Alien fan, I’m totally feeling the love for this game, so the more content for Survivor Mode that’s made available, the better. Clearly Creative Assembly has predicted this response, as the post goes on to detail an optional Season Pass for those interested.
There will be more add-on packs to explore across the following month, and if you’re keen to sharpen those survival instincts, then don’t miss out on our Season Pass. The pass will give you access to all five Survivor Mode add-on packs, with up to a 25% discount!
Alien: Isolation is scheduled to release on October 7th for PS3, PS4, Xbox 360, Xbox One, and PC. I’m pretty sure you can use any one of those to watch DVDs of the Alien movies, so get to it.
