The countdown to the release of Alien: Isolation continues with more from SEGA themselves on Survivor Mode. The mode, according to SEGA, will add new content to the game over the next six months. Five packs of Survivor Mode downloadable content will follow the game’s release and can be bought either individually or, if you wish to get the Season Pass, collectively. Currently only North American GameStop stores can get this content at this time.
If you’re not sure what Survivor Mode is the SEGA blog explains it:
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.
A new trailer was also uploaded showing off Survivor Mode and that mode’s first map, Basement, which will be in the Survivor Mode demo that comes with the game. That’s not all, however, according to the SEGA blog:
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.
The game releases in less than three weeks. We’ll keep you posted on anything else on the game that may be announced.
