FoxNext Announces Alien-Based VR Experience – Alien: Descent

Just in time for Alien Day, 20th Century Fox have announced Alien: Descent – an Alien-themed virtual reality experience coming to a mall in California. The VR experience has been developed by Pure Imagination Studios in partnership with FoxNext Destinations. Unlike the PSVR, Oculus Rift and the HTC Vive, this experience is completely wire free so you can freely walk around on a stage for added immersion.

The premise is that you play a Colonial Marine, and you and your squad are tasked to investigate a distress signal on a Weyland-Yutani mining outpost. The outpost reported some sort of infestation just before communication was cut off so it’s down to you and three other players to eradicate the Xenomorph infestation, quarantine any survivors and get everyone off the world safely.

This is a 4-player experience and each player gets their own VR weapon and their movements in the environment are tracked with sensors on their arms and legs.

In addition, there will be environmental effects on the actual stage, motion platforms, and other surprises. Alien: Descent lasts about 15 minutes, and tickets are $22 per player. The virtual reality experience opens its doors in The Outlets at Orange in Orange County, California on April 26th. You can check out more details on the official Alien: Descent website. Does anybody happen to live nearby? Will you be checking this experience out on Alien Day?

    Good man! When you booked in for? I'm so fecking jealous I've gotta wait (might not get to) to experience this!

    That was sarcasm Hicks.  :D If it ever comes anywhere near me I'll dang sure try to give it a go. But right now, I'm no where near this thing.

    I’m literally traveling to this area for a wedding in August but it looks like it’ll only be up through May. Here’s to hoping a location pops up around my hometown! 

    I think it's actually sticking around for a little bit. I don't believe it's a pop-up.

    Is this supposed to be the video game developed by Cold Iron Studios that was announced 3 months ago, or is that still an entirely different project separate from this?

    Completely different. This was first announced about a year ago.

    Did a YouTube vid on the news yesterday too -



    Would've really dug this when I was a kid, but I'm alittle old for this sort of thing now. It's always great to see stuff like this though. Any new Alien experience keeps the beast alive. I just hope we get another game with the quality of Isolation someday.

    Never too old for fun, Huggs!

    Also, the Alien: Descent IG page did state that plans for additional locations would be announced later.

    Oh the heck with it. You're right. Somebody cover me! I'm goin' in!  :D

    Older the bull, stiffer the horn ;)

    I'm sure you'd give the young pups a run for their money, given the chance at having a shot of that thing.

    Undoubtedly, It might look alittle weird though. A grown man surrounded by laughing children, as I hysterically yell, "Shut up! Do you wanna get us all killed?!"  :D

    I actually got a press event invite for this. It's taking place on 4/26. I live about 45-60 min away depending on traffic, but it's also a work day, so I am not sure I can even make it, which sucks.

    I just signed my son and I up.  We are going next Sunday to celebrate my birthday 4/26!  I am so stoked since we live 20 minutes from here.  I will post on here to let people know how it is.
