Sega responds to pre-order backlash
Sega has responded to the backlash of the recently announced Alien: Isolation pre-order DLC missions and have confirmed that the DLC will be will be available to everyone 'at a later date'.
The news came after it was announced that players would receive bonus missions set during the events of the classic 1979 feature film, if they pre-ordered the game. Fans quickly expressed their frustration toward the two DLC missions, entitled "Crew Expendable" and "Last Survivor" only being available to those who pre-ordered Alien: Isolation and that many who have already pre-ordered the game would not receive all the content based on their preferred location of purchase.
Sega responded to fans concerns via the official Alien: Isolation Facebook page:
"It's genuinely been great to see the reaction to The Crew Expendable and Last Survivor pre-order bonus content we announced yesterday and how excited you all are to re-experience those classic scenes from the original movie with our Alien. It's been absolutely amazing for us at the Studio.
However, 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."
Sega's statement doesn't state if the content will be offered for free or sold at an additional cost, although given the popularity of the content and DLC trends, it's pretty much safe to assume there will be a fee.
