Alien: Isolation Dev Talks VR, Reactions

Alien: Isolation may already be out and virtual reality (VR) fans may already have unlocked Oculus Rift head-mounted display (HMD) support for the title, but news of official VR integration is still yet to be shared. The developer hasn’t confirmed if it will be revisiting the title to integrate full support in the future. While the wait for news continues, here’s an interview with developer Creative Assembly’s Al Hope talking about VR support and reactions to the title.

In the interview below Hope talks about Creative Assembly’s ‘first steps’ into VR with the prototype of Alien: Isolation running on the Oculus Rift head-mounted display (HMD).  He also touches upon people’s reactions to the title at the various shows it’s been exhibited at throughout 2014.

Alien: Isolation casts players as Amanda Ripley, the daughter of franchise protagonist Ellen Ripley, as she searches for information about her mother between the events of the original Alien and its sequel, Aliens. VRFocus will continue to follow the title for any further VR-related updates.
