Here’s How To Unlock Oculus Rift Support For Alien: Isolation
Hackers have figured out way for Alien: Isolation to support Oculus Rift, and it’s fairly straightforward and doesn’t require extensive coding or modding.
Reports on Reddit and NeoGAF have offered the following easy tutorial on how to get Oculus going in Alien: Isolation on PC:
Go to the game’s DATA folder, and open the ENGINE_SETTINGS.XML file in Notepad, track down the stereo options and change them to:
< Setting name=”Stereo Mode” >
< Quality name=”Rift” precedence=”4″ />
< Quality name=”Off” precedence=”4″ />

This is the sort of game that seems perfect for Oculus Rift integration. I’m playing the game on PlayStation 4, personally, but I am now tempted to break out the office Oculus and try this out.
