With titles like The Evil Within and Alien: Isolation dropping next month, this October is bound to be a frighteningly-intense month: luckily for those getting Alien: Isolation, the scares won’t end once October does.
In a press release from publisher Sega, the Season Pass and DLC plans for Alien: Isolation were detailed, with the main additional content for the game being a new “Survivor Mode” that will be supported until early 2015 with new maps and content.
Sega detailed that Survivor Mode will pit man vs. alien against a time limit, where players will be put into a map against an alien and forced to survive or complete objectives with limited resources available. The first Survivor Mode map, Basement, will be included with the game at launch, with the first set of Survivor Mode DLC set to arrive a few weeks later, on October 28th, 2014.
Overall, the Season Pass for Alien: Isolation will include five Survivor Mode map packs, with each pack containing three new maps. In addition to the new locations and objectives, each map pack will also contain a new playable character and other enemy types thrown into the mix, aside from the titular alien.
Sega concluded that all of the Survivor Mode map packs will be released by March 2015 – prices for both the Season Pass and the individual map packs weren’t given at this time, but the press release mentions a discount of up to 25% by purchasing the Season Pass, in lieu of purchasing all the content individually.
Alien: Isolation releases for PS4, Xbox One, PS3, Xbox 360, and PC on October 7th, 2014.
