Creative Assembly have announced the first of five Survivor DLC additions, to be released on the 28th of October:
“In ‘Corporate Lockdown’, you step in to the shoes of Ransome, a Seegson Executive. On discovering that he’s been abandoned by his paymasters and aware that the Torrens is on the way, he decides to hitch a ride and escape, taking with him valuable decoded Nostromo data.
Before he does this, however, there are still a few loose ends he wants to tidy up…
Across three new challenging, tense and terrifying maps, ‘Severance’, ‘Scorched Earth’ and ‘Loose Ends’, you’ll be pitted against other players on our online leaderboards.
Will you escape the station in the fastest time possible? Or achieve the highest score with the side quests and hidden bonus objectives to claim the elevated top positions?
New to ‘Corporate Lockdown’ is also Gauntlet Mode. You’ll be challenged to top the Gantlet Mode leaderboards by completing all three challenge maps back to back – without dying. Will you succeed?”
It sounds as if Corporate Lockdown is composed of three actual maps and somehow features a narrative to go along with it. I’ll be very curious to see how this works out. For those interested in the Alien Isolation DLC, a season pass can also be purchased.
