Alien: Isolation players can download a new update for the game adding a new Nightmare difficulty mode that challenges all but the most proficient player to the ultimate Alien experience. And if the thought of a more aggressive Alien encounter causes sleepless nights, a new Novice difficulty mode is also available.
SEGA today announced that the first of five add-on packs for Alien: Isolation, ‘Corporate Lockdown’, releases October 28, 2014, offering players three new challenging and terrifying maps for the game’s Survivor Mode. Each challenge pack offers a new perspective on the events on-board Sevastopol Station in the days before the arrival of the Weyland-Yutani team, with a new playable character, a unique set of objectives and a new game mode.
In horror movies, when the sole survivor of a murderous killing spree is running for their lives, you find yourself shouting at them. They always wander into the wrong room, go up the stairs when they should be going down them, run loudly down a hallway, or otherwise behave how you would least expect them to. In Alien: Isolation, you are that person. You’ll be panicking, bumping into things, and running loudly down a hallway yourself. You’ve become what you’ve hated to see, and you’ll be repeating those types of mistakes over and over again.
