In a bit of nifty advertising, the fictional Weyland-Yutani corporation invites viewers to reserve their Walter online. While there’s no actual Walter in the deal, anyone who signs up will see ads tailored to their interest in the film appear on select partner websites.
Titan Books also has several tie-ins for the film:
- Alien: Covenant by Alan Dean Foster. The mass market paperback novelization of the film will be out May 23 and has an MSRP of $7.99.

- Alien: Covenant Magazine, a behind-the-scenes one-shot with an MSRP of $9.99 and a release date of May 24.

Foster has worked on the series before, writing the novelization of the original Alien film. Titan further revealed that Foster is working on an original spinoff of the franchise.
