As reported by Variety, Fox has been working closely with director Ridley Scott to create 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,”

There’s no release date just yet but the experience will be available to buy on “major VR platforms

A release date is yet to be announced, but it’s rumoured it will be available on “all major VR platforms”. Meaning you get to have a heart-attack inducing experience on possibly Playstation VR, HTC Vive and Oculus Rift.
