If you're seeking to add an extra dimension to your Justice League experience, Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment and DC are launching a new movie tie-in VR amusement to insert your fevered brain into the realm of their flagship superhero crew.
This engaging Justice League VR experience tips off with a Gillette-sponsored demo for your Android or iPhone device, then will be deployed in multiple stages, rolling out prior to, during, and following the opening of Justice League on November 17.
The four-tiered campaign begins now with a free test drive, then expands onto the HTC Vive device at next month's New York Comic Con for a longer look from October 5-8, onward at exclusive IMAX VR Centers in New York and L.A. as the film enters theaters in November, and finally available in the comfort of your home on an array of top-name VR platforms as Christmas nears.
Here's the official press release:
Warner Bros. invites fans to join the Justice League in a thrilling Virtual Reality experience that allows you to step into the shoes and feel the powers of the iconic DC Super Heroes: Batman, Wonder Woman, The Flash, Aquaman, and Cyborg.
The first taste of the VR experience kicks off globally with a promotional demo in partnership with Gillette: Justice League VR: Join the League – Gillette Edition. It will be available for iPhones and Android phones starting September 7 for free download from Apple App Store, the Google Play Store. This demo version is an interactive, gaze-based experience and will have up to 90 seconds of gameplay per character. The experience requires Google Cardboard or an equivalent VR viewer to play.
The following month, the Justice League booth at New York Comic Con will offer attendees a more in-depth sneak peek of the HTC Vive version of the experience with the Justice League VR: Join the League – New York Comic Con Edition. Users will be able to use the HTC Vive’s controllers for an enhanced version of the Super Hero simulations.
The IMAX VR: Justice League Experience will be unveiled at IMAX VR Centers beginning on November 17—the opening day of the feature film—and will be an IMAX exclusive for its first two weeks. This totally immersive and completely interactive adventure will test if you are able to master your Super Hero powers.
In December, the VR experience comes home with an expanded Justice League Virtual Reality: The Complete Experience, to be released for transactional purchase on multiple VR platforms. Featuring additional modes and expanded missions, the home-based VR experience will support controllers, spatial tracking and room scale tracking, depending on the platform. Targeted platforms include HTC Vive, Oculus Rift, Samsung GearVR, Google DayDream and Sony PSVR (subject to change).
