While not officially supported by Sega and developer The Creative Assembly, players have uncovered a relatively easy way to enable Rift VR support in the newest Alien: Isolation title, and the result will leave you with a new change of underwear.

The Creative Assembly added virtual reality support to Alien: Isolation for a special E3 demo of the game but it took a handful of developers and enthusiasts posting to Reddit and the Oculus VR forums to work out a solution for the retail release.

Getting the game to recognize the Rift and present Isolation in VR mode requires editing a few text and XML files and configuring a couple Rift settings, but the implementation appears pretty painless. Here are the instructions, via Reddit.

Based on the response from Rift dev kit owners who say they're playing Alien: Isolation in VR mode, the experience — although unofficial — is still as terrifying as the E3 demo. If you do happen to have a devkit lying around I'd recommend it, though prepare for some new underwear.

For our thoughts on Alien: Isolation, check out the official review here.
