SEGA: Alien: Isolation’s Ripley DLC Available After Launch
In a move that surprised precisely no one, SEGA announced yesterday that the pre-order bonus missions starring the original Alien cast will be available after launch.
SEGA made the announcement on the Alien: Isolation Facebook page, writing,
Some of you have been asking if the two pieces of content are only available through pre-order or if we’ll be releasing them at a later date as well. So, I can confirm today that we do plan to release both Crew Expendable and Last Survivor at a later date and we’ll have more details for you guys on that shortly.
So once again, we see the futility of pre-ordering to gain access to some sort of “exclusive” content. As is always the case, it’ll be available to anyone with a few bucks in their hand once the hubbub around the launch dies down. Kudos to SEGA for being a bit more upfront about it than most.
This is why I dislike pre-order bonuses so much.
