Does that Gamestop deal also involve the PC version or is it in only an "exclusive" as far as consoles are concerned?

If you can wait and if history is an indicator, all the pre-order DLC will most likely be available for purchase later.

So fucking tired of that exclusive day 1 DLC bullshit. Content which should be in the base game to get you to commit to a purchase before you even know if the game is good. This, after Sega put out Alien: Colonial Marines to widespread critical and consumer disgust. They have no shame at all. And apparently all you guys caved and played right into their hands! YOU have no shame! Control yourselves and stop rewarding this nonsense!

Damn, I'm going to have to get this now. I hope BB does the $10 back for preordering on this.

I'm willing to skip the Ripply mission to avoid GameStop.

Wow...they nailed the characters down...Ripley is really Ripley. If this game does good I just pray they consider doing one off Alien 2.

I would bet money the retailer-exclusive DLC will be open up to everyone at a cost a month after the game launches . . .

. . . you know, like the shit Watch Dogs pulled.

Well to be fair if you're willing to wait it out most store exclusive content becomes DLC at some point in time. That's why I tend to not freak out if I don't get an exclusive because normally I can just buy it eventually anyways if it's something I really want. This game looks pretty sweet though. I'll probably put in a pre-order for it soon.

Re: Alien: Isolation - 10/7/14 (PS4,XO,PS3,360,PC)
 
The developers have already said that both DLC missions will be available at a later date for everyone to buy.

Great seeing the cast back again, but man they sure sound elderly reading their lines. Despite his exposition about how you can't walk away from a video game, I doubt Yaphet Kotto has any idea what a modern video game is like.

Re: Alien: Isolation - 10/7/14 (PS4,XO,PS3,360,PC)
 
I heard that Kotto is a huge Call of Duty fan. He teams up with Ian Holm and Harry Dean Stanton every Thursday to pwn some n00bs.

Was there every any confirmation that Best Buy would get the pre-order bonus as well? Or is it just Gamestop and Amazon?

Looking good. I pre-ordered it. It's the only way to be sure...

6 months of DLC was announced today.
http://www.ign.com/articles/2014/09/...-survivor-mode

How about making an already seemingly light content game more robust by adding all of that in? Instead, they would rather us buy the game and a season pass to get all of the rest of the stuff. I just don't see how the single player of this game can be any longer than 8-10 hours tops.

Re: Alien: Isolation - 10/7/14 (PS4,XO,PS3,360,PC)
 
Yeah, that kind of thing just makes me want to wait for a complete edition next year.

In a super-greedy move, they're now selling the Season Pass for this game (which is not yet released or reviewed anywhere) for $29.99.

What's included?

Description

Purchase the Alien: Isolation Season Pass to get access to five add on packs at a 25% discount! All add on content packs are scheduled to be released by March 2015, and will give you access to new maps and characters to take on the Survivor Mode challenge.

Save money on content for this game by purchasing the Season pass. Content can be downloaded in-game or from the PlayStation®Store as and when available.
