Alien: Covenant To Get Ridley Scott Approved VR experience
Hot on the heels of Alien: Covenant’s surprise Christmas day trailer, 20th Century Fox has revealed that the move will be getting a companion VR experience. Directed by visual effects artist David Karlak and developed by Fox Innovation lab, this mysterious Alien VR title will be a paid app coming to ‘major’ VR platforms. Interestingly, Fox has confirmed that it is being made in conjunction with Alien: Covenant’s writer and director, Ridley Scott.
While this sounds great on paper, the last Scott approved Fox Innovation VR project was The Martian VR experience – and it was pretty terrible. With a different director on board this time, however, fans will be hoping that Alien: Covenant VR will deliver the most pant-wetting Xenomorph horror experience that money can buy.
The movie will be out in theaters this May, and while Prometheus had its problems, we’re cautiously optimistic about its successor. If you’re itching for some VR Alien goodness, there’s always the Oculus Rift version of Alien: Isolation to keep you suitably terrified will you wait.
Alien: Covenant VR will be crawling its way onto a headset near you later this year.
