Alien: Isolation Summary
Apparently seeing VR as less a promotional vehicle and more a 'new media opportunity', Fox will utilize the tech in a similar fashion to their Martian VR experience by giving this year's Alien: Covenant movie its VR spin.
Virtual Reality and horror are two great things that when combined can offer a terrifying experience like no other. With the ability to be fully immersed in the sights and sounds of a virtual world is there little wonder why anyone would be excited at the possibility of a VR game based on everyone's favorite xenomorph?
Sega's first-person sci-fi horror Alien: Isolation is surely very much about your interaction with the xenomorph of titular reference, but the constant threat of danger makes it hard to take in everything around you. Thankfully a modder has found a way to let us stop and smell the space roses.
Alien: Isolation came barging into the room last year and put a hard scare on our collective psyche with it's terrifying first-person experience set in the iconic sci-fi universe.

has actually been doing over the last financial year, with packaged software sales up 41 per cent and consumer revenue up 11 per cent, but the firm's management has still described its video game sales figures as "weak".
The Creative Assembly's Alien: Isolation shipped only 2.1 million units by the end of March this year, which isn't great for a big franchise game that was so heavily marketed. Shame, because it's the best thing Sega's published in years.
