Alien: Isolation’s success makes me happy on a deep, warm, and fuzzy level. It goes so brazenly against the grain of what’s accepted in triple-A first-person games, pitting you primarily against a single enemy you can’t kill and hardly see and actively discourages movement at anything beyond a terrified crawl. However, my feeling about Alien: Isolation – The Collection, which includes the base game and all its DLC, are less warm and fuzzy.
Into surviving against all odds? Well then, we should tell you about our best PC survival games.
Don’t get me wrong, it’s handy for those who didn’t dip their toes into Creative Assembly’s game until now and want the complete package. Also, the DLC’s of a really high quality. Particularly those set on the Nostromo – Crew Expendable and Last Survivor. Here’s the full list of content included in The Collection, for clarity:
Alien: Isolation – Season Pass
My problem is that I own the base game, and some of the DLC. So while that contents available on the cheap if you buy it with the game, the season pass and individual DLCs are still positioned at full price on Steam. So that’s a bit annoying.
In any case, there’s a special promotion on Steam for the next 24 hours that discounts the base game alone to £15.99/$24.99 and the newly released Collection to £19.99/$29.99. Well worth it if you didn’t take the plunge yet, frustrating if you did.
