Alien: Isolation Pre-Order DLC Featuring Classic Movie Cast to be Available Later

You can still play as Ripley if you do not pre-order the game…
Earlier this week, SEGA announced a special pre-order bonus DLC for the upcoming Alien: Isolation game that will feature two bonus missions based on the 1979 classic Alien film. However, fans reacted negatively over the announcement, not realizing that the pre-order DLC will still be available to fans later on.
The new DLC bonus missions features most of the cast of the original film, including Sigourney Weaver, reprising their roles from the film. The missions are available as free pre-order bonus. However, gamers believed that they would not be able to play or buy the DLC bonus missions later if they unless they pre-ordered Isolation.
SEGA released an official statement in response to quell fan reaction:
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.
The negative response seems like overreaction from fans. It seems pretty rare for pre-order bonus DLC to not be made available for regular DLC purchase later on.
Alien: Isolation is due out on October 7 for the PS3, PS4, Xbox 360, and Xbox One.
