The Fox Innovation Lab announces Alien: Covenant VR Experience! At the end of November, we reported on the possibility of Alien: Covenant receiving the Virtual Reality Experience treatment. According to various news outlets (Deadline, The Verge, Variety), it was announced at Consumer Electronics Show 2017 that, as we suggested, Fox Innovation Labs are indeed putting together an Alien: Covenant – VR Experience!
According to The Verge, the Alien: Covenant – VR Experience is “to be directed by David Karlak, the project will be a collaboration between Scott’s RSA Films, the virtual reality production house MPC VR, and the Fox Innovation Lab — Twentieth Century Fox’s in-house VR and immersive experience division. Described as a “dread-inducing journey into the depths of the Alien universe,” the project will be released this year, though further details on platforms and distribution strategy haven’t been announced as of yet.”
According to WWG, those in attendance at Consumer Electronics Show (CES) will get to experience a demo of the VR Experience. There doesn’t appear to be any solid release date or further information just yet.
The Fox Innovation Lab previously released a VR Experience based on Sir Ridley’s Scott last science-fiction film, The Martian. They also brought a VR Experience for the recently released Assassin’s Creed (starring Alien: Covenant’s Michael Fassbender) to a few cinemas in America.
