Sigourney Weaver returns as Ripley in Alien: Isolation, surrounded by her fellow cast members as the crew of the Nostromo.
Ripley and the crew of the Nostromo will return in the upcoming video game Alien: Isolation.
Sigourney Weaver and other actors in Ridley Scott's 1979 sci-fi thriller Alien will lend their voices and likenesses to the new game due from Sega on October 7. Also on board are Tom Skerritt (Dallas), Veronica Cartwright (Lambert), Harry Dean Stanton (Brett), Yaphet Kotto (Parker) and Ian Holm (his voice will be provided by another actor).
The characters from the original movie will appear in two special "bonus" missions set apart from the main game, that let you relive two classic scenes from the original movie. In a bonus level called "Crew Expendable," players can play as either Ripley, Dallas or Parker to lure the creature into the ship airlock.
In "Last Survivor," the second bonus mission players help Ripley race to the shuttle craft after Lambert and Parker are attacked.
"It was important to us to have the key original cast members reprise their roles in order to perfectly capture the atmosphere of the movie," said Alistair Hope, the creative lead on the game in a post on the Sega blog.
"For some of the original cast, this is their first appearance in an Alien video game. Seeing them reprise those roles after 35 years was an unforgettable experience."
In the main game the player takes the role of Ellen Ripley's daughter, Amanda, who is trapped on a space station with the creature — putting her in essentially the same tough spot that her mother was in.
