The return to the origins of the Alien saga by Ridley Scott will be accompanied by a virtual reality experience that we hope will be more complete than the one we saw with The Martian.
The Alien saga and virtual reality seem to be destined to understand each other, and after many users have been able to enjoy Alien Isolation in the Oculus DK2, we all miss more terrifying encounters with the popular xenoforms, and the new installment of the saga, Alien: Covenant, seems the perfect excuse to make a new raid. 20th Century Fox has confirmed that they are making a virtual reality experience set in the new film, the result of a collaboration between RSA Films (owned by the director), the virtual reality company MPC VR and the Fox Innovation Lab.
This experience will be released throughout the year, we assume that close to the release of the film, scheduled for May 19. It has not yet been announced on which platforms it will be available or what type of content will be, but we hope that you have learned the lesson from what happened with The Martian, who has garnered a great amount of negative reviews on Steam and Oculus Home, in addition to receiving a bad grade in our analysis, and that is charge of £ 20 (now reduced to 10) by an experience of 20 minutes of which 10 are a video is something that does not leave a good taste to the users of virtual reality. Let’s hope that with Alien: Covenant they redeem themselves and launch a product at the height of the mythical saga.
