Having just found out Ubisoft would be revealing a new virtual reality (VR) title, VRFocus can now report its not a videogame but a cinematic experience. Announced at a press conference at the Game Developers Conference (GDC) 2016 today is the Assassin’s Creed VR Experience.
Taking the stage was Matthew Lewis, President, Practical Magic VR & Director of VR Experiences who revealed that the project was: “A cinematic VR experience being shot alongside the film, in every location.” Lewis continued, saying: “We’re working really hard to create a VR experience that’s on par with the motion-picture experience.”
That sure to excite fans of VR and of the Assassin’s Creed series which has a big following of gamers around the world. Details on the experience’s storyline haven’t yet been revealed, whether it’ll follow the movie, as the locations are the same giving a different viewpoint or an intertwining story that unveils other aspects.
Assassin’s Creed VR Experience has been confirmed to be arriving on head-mounted displays (HMDs) later this year although which ones haven’t been confirmed yet.
