Back in June of this year SEGA revealed that The Creative Assembly had developed a virtual reality (VR) experience within their then-anticipated Alien: Isolation. A playable version was debuted at the Electronic Entertainment Expo (E3), LA, that week and then little was said about the project. The videogame’s launch came-and-went without so much of a whisper, but today Oculus VR has revealed that the VR edition of the videogame has made it’s Australian public debut at PAX Australia.
Headlining Oculus VR’s PAX Australia booth, alongside the likes of Lucky’s Tale, SUPERHOT and Vanguard V (formerly Vanguard Valkyrie), Alien: Isolation is playable in VR to all attendees. This is not a trade-only demo nor is it held behind closed doors, as has previously been the case. A public demo was suggested for a UK meet-up earlier this year but pulled before the event and later shown at EGX in London.
Also worth noting is the appearance of Vanguard V. Having been unsuccessful in it’s attempts to raise funding via Kickstarter earlier this year many had assumed the project had not been taken any further. The demonstration of the videogame at Oculus VR’s own booth suggests otherwise.
All of the demo titles featured are playable on an Oculus Rift DK2, the second iteration of the development kit, and are open to the public. VRFocus will keep you updated with all the latest details on these titles and of course the Oculus Rift head-mounted display (HMD) itself.
