Sega delivered on its goal to release the first of five add-on packs for Alien: Isolation today. Corporate Lockdown includes three new challenge maps for Survivor Mode, starring company man Ransome as he attempts to escape Sevastapol Station with info from the Nostromo flight recorder. Each of the three locations (Severance, Scorched Earth and Loose Ends) include their own objectives to complete, along with a giant Alien that'll kill you with one hit. Ah yes, and there are Facehuggers. You know, in case you felt the core game was too easy.
Of particular interest is the fact that Ransome begins the first map with the Bolt Gun and Revolver. Not that either of these weapons do anything against the Alien of course. It's one big tease.
We plan to download Corporate Lockdown later this evening. If you need further convincing, watch a 12-plus minute walkthrough from developer Creative Assembly. We use the term "walkthrough" loosely, because what ensues is death, plain and simple. Quite frankly, we expect to die just as much, if not more.
