Paranormal Activity VR Demo Heading to Theatres This Week with HTC Vive

    Back in June 2015 VRFocus reported on the news that developer VRWERX was working on a new entry into the popular Paranormal Activity horror franchise in the form of a virtual reality (VR) videogame named Paranormal Activity VR. The experience is set to arrive on the Oculus Rift, HTC Vive and PlayStation VR head-mounted displays (HMDs) next year. For those that can’t wait until 2016, however, VRWERX has today announced that a demo for the title will be on display at select AMC theatres across the US from tomorrow.

    The demo of the title running on the HTC Vive is being showcased around the country to coincide with the latest release in the film series, Paranormal Activity: The Ghost Dimension. The sixth and final instalment in the series opens on 22nd October with 19:00 showings. The free experience will be located at AMC Theatres including Los Angeles, New York, Boston and San Francisco and will give players a taste of the first-person survival horror experience, which will also be coming to non-VR platforms. A full list of locations can be seen below.

    “The timing couldn’t be better for the reveal of our Paranormal Activity VR Game Demo,” said Russell Naftal, Co Managing Partner of Beast MG/VRWERX. “With the Paranormal Activity VR Game Demo, we’ve created an entirely unmatched horror experience on this amazing new platform. We can’t wait for everyone to play the full game this spring!”

    VRFocus will continue to follow Paranormal Activity VR, reporting back with the latest updates on the title.
