According to Foster, the book will contain "some unique original material... An unusual approach that's never been tried before in a novelization".
- Alien: Covenant will mark Alan Dean Foster's first involvement in the Alien franchise in 25 years, having previously written the novelisations of Alien, Aliens and Alien3.
- The book will also be the first English-language novelisation in the Alien/Predator/Alien vs. Predator franchise since Alien vs. Predator by Marc Cerasini; while Prometheus had a novelisation, it was only published in Japan.
