The team at Creative Assembly sure knows how to get Alien fans whipped into a frenzy.

The team at Creative Assembly sure knows how to get Alien fans whipped into a frenzy.

In this new trailer for the upcoming Alien: Isolation, the original cast of Alien chats about making the new game and shares memories from 35-plus years ago, on the set of the original film.

It’s savvy marketing. There’s a powerful hit of nostalgia that comes from watching Sigourney Weaver (Ripley, duh) talking about the appeal of the Alien Universe. There’s also just something charming about Harry Dean Stanton exclaiming "Jesus Christ!" when he’s told it’s been 35 years since the release of the film. That’s so Brett.

The original actors (minus Ian Holm) have reprised their roles for Alien Isolation’s Crew Expendable DLC, which will be available as a pre-order bonus for Gamestop customers, or as DLC down the line. Alien: Isolation is due out on Oct. 7th.
