The groundbreaking Alien Sci-fi thriller bursts into virtual reality.
Executive Produced by Ridley Scott and directed by David Karlak, Alien: Covenant In Utero is a 360-degree virtual reality journey into a living nightmare that offers a terrifyingly close encounter, as an alien Neomorph at the time of its birth. Fans will be able to experience the Alien universe and relive the very first memories of the Neomorph in an immersive environment.
“With the In Utero experience, audience participation is taken to a whole new level. You get to be a Neomorph, exploring what’s happening around you and within you,” said Ridley Scott.
“Before I even touched a camera, Alien was a movie that set me on my journey. The film provoked me and opened my eyes to a new level of cinematic immersion. I feel very privileged to be directing Alien: Covenant In Utero and building upon the universe that Ridley has created. Tapping into both traditional storytelling and the emerging technology driving virtual reality, my aim has been to do something new and bold, which Ridley has supported from the beginning,” added Karlak.
We aren’t the only ones excited about this fully immersive glimpse into the Alien universe. Fast Company exclaims, “[In Utero] gives you the chance to slip into the slimy, oozing skin of an Alien: Covenant Neomorph!”, while Tech Crunch calls it “bloody, terrifying and incredible.” Additional praise came from Variety, The Hollywood Reporter and VR Scout added “You’ll probably want to experience this twice.”
Alien: Covenant In Utero is a culmination of talents from Twentieth Century Fox, FoxNext VR Studio, RSA VR, MPC VR, a Technicolor company, Mach1 and technology partners AMD RADEON and DELL.
