A new Alien: Isolation mod entitled “MotherVR” has brought VR functionality to the Oculus Rift and HTC Vive on PC. Modder Zack “Nibre” Fannon has taken what once was only compatible with the development kit model of Oculus and ported it to the consumer version.
Alien: Isolation VR mode was previously demoed at E3 2014 leading up to the game’s release. Unfortunately this prototype VR mode was only used for promotional purposes and the feature never made its way into the full release. Last fall, Sega hinted that the game may receive a VR update or re-release, but we haven’t heard anything since.
The feature was still hidden inside of the game’s code, and thanks to Nibre it’s now easily accessible to anyone with a consumer model Oculus Rift or HTC Vive. I had the chance to test the mod with my Oculus Rift, and thought I might share some impressions.
