The Alien: Covenant VR experience will be made available across all major VR platforms. No release date was named, but the release will probably orbit Alien: Covenant's May theatrical release date.
The Fox Innovation Lab describes the Alien Covenant VR experience as, "a dread-inducing journey into the depths of the Alien universe.
"Viewers will discover the true meaning of terror as they navigate through horrifying alien environments and a story where every decision could mean the difference between life and death."
The Alien: Covenant VR experience is executive produced by Ridley Scott and directed by David Karlak.
This is the second major movie tie-in VR experience created by Fox Innovation Lab. It previously developed a VR Experience based on The Martian.
