One of the most exciting announcements for VR fans at E3 this was that, not only was the new Sega title Alien: Isolation going to officially support the Oculus Rift but that it was playable as part of Oculus’ demo set too! We of course made a bee line to the booth to try it out.
Above is some off screen gameplay footage showing some really interesting mechanics that utilise the positional tracking capabilities of the Oculus Rift DK2 (which is due to ship next month). In particular, after pulling out the franchises signature motion tracker, the player can lean in to take a better look at the device.
Enjoy the video, we’ll have detailed impressions on all the demos at Oculus VR’s booth later on.
