Alien: Isolation gets Oculus support

Owen S. Good is a longtime veteran of video games writing, well known for his coverage of sports and racing games.

Alien: Isolation is playable on the Oculus Rift virtual reality headset, adding another dimension to the sci-fi survival horror game coming soon from Creative Assembly and Sega. The game will be demonstrated at the Oculus VR booth at E3 this week.

Alien: Isolation is one of several games showing at the booth, including Eve: Valkyrie, the shooter set in the Eve universe that will be co-published by Oculus. The others are Lucky's Tale, a made-for-VR adventure, and Superhot, a first-person shooter in which time only moves when the player moves.

Additionally, Jason Rubin, the co-founder of Naughty Dog and former head of THQ, has joined Oculus VR as its head of worldwide studios.

"There have only been a handful of times in my life where I saw something that I knew would change everything," Rubin said in a statement on Oculus VR's official blog. "The awe-inspiring tech Oculus is building is a portal into an incredible world that my daughter will one day consider to be normal. The moment I put it on, I wanted to help define that future."
