‘Alien: Isolation’ just got a new ‘Safe Haven’ DLC pack that includes a brand new challenge mode called Salvage Mode.
Salvage mode tasks players with surviving a series of ten challenges as they attempt to complete different objectives and make their escape while deadly enemies and a two hour ticking clock stand against them. The only catch to all this is that players have to do this without dying.
Though, it isn’t entirely brutal seeing as dying will only take players to their last completed challenge. However, any deaths will have tremendous costs on their final score at the end. So if there is any inclination to make the leader boards or to pride one’s self in accomplishment, players will want to be aiming to complete the mode’s challenges perfectly.
Players are able to save their progress during a challenge as well, albeit at the cost of points they earn which they could retain for a higher score at the mode’s end.
As far as what challenges players will be doing, all of it is a series of collecting items while enduring stealth sections, navigating crumbling environments of the Sevastopol space station, and even confronting the game’s dangerously creepy if not outright terrifying enemies.
Like previous ‘Alien: Isolation DLC’ packs, a new playable character has been added to the roster with the ‘Safe Haven’ DLC pack. This time it’s Hughes, Sevastopol space station’s communications manager.
‘Alien: Isolation’ is the newest title in the ‘Alien’ game franchise. Taking place 15 years after the events of 1986’s ‘Alien,’ the game has players controlling Amanda Ripley, daughter of Ellen Ripley, as she tries to uncover details of her mother’s disappearance from a flight recorder aboard the Sevastopol space station. However, what awaits Ripley on this station is more than she could have bargained for.
‘Alien: Isolation’ is available now for PS4, PS3, Xbox One, Xbox 360 and Windows PC.
