Game of Thrones fans that have access to Viveport Infinity and a HTC Vive or Oculus Rift virtual reality headset, may be interested in a new Game of Thrones VR experience that is launching later today. Entitled Beyond the Wall the VR experience will be available in English in the U.S., Brazil, Mexico, Argentina, the U.K., and Canada.
Created by Framestore in partnership with HBO, the GoT VR experience transports users to the northern border of The Seven Kingdoms to fight and defend The Wall. Players can test their sword-fighting skills against a terrifying undead polar bear and hoard of wights in a short VR experience that can be replayed.
“VR is the perfect pairing for Game of Thrones fans who can now step onto the battlefield of Beyond the Wall as part of Viveport Infinity,” said Rikard Steiber, President of Viveport. “Beyond the Wall gives you the first-hand experience of joining the Night’s Watch and protecting the realms of men with your flaming sword from the army of the dead.”
“Game of Thrones fans love exploring the world of Westeros and beyond, and now they can feel the rush of fighting the undead from the safety of their home in VR through Viveport,” said Sabrina Caluori, EVP of Digital and Social Marketing at HBO. “We’re committed to giving our fans unique and cutting-edge opportunities for engagement, and we think they’ll love this latest entry in our VR portfolio.”
If you don’t already have a subscription to Viveport Infinity a free two week subscription trial is available for you to explore what is on offer.
