As if this week couldn’t get any better (it’s a short one), Sony has just announced the production of three brand new VR experiences featuring David Attenborough that will be exclusively available on PlayStation 4 and PlayStation VR. I mean just think about it, Sir David Attenborough narrating things and playing the role of host, while you explore the amazing landscapes and animals in glorious 360 virtual reality? It’s a dream come true really.
The interactive movies include David Attenborough’s First Life, Cocos: Shark Island and Atomic Ghost fleet, which makes the decision to go and get yourself a VR headset all that more alluring.
Here’s the description for First Life:
First Life VR: takes viewers on a journey into the heart of an ancient world with one of the greatest naturalists of modern times, Sir David Attenborough. Together you explore the ancient Cambrian ocean in this 15-minute film, which invites you to unearth the secrets of the evolution of the first life on Earth. Here you meet Earth’s earliest inhabitants, coming face to face with extraordinary extinct sea creatures including the fearsome Anomalocaris and the curious looking Opabinia. First Life is a fully rendered 360 CGI environment created by award winning SFX studio ZooFX who have created graphics for Hollywood films including Gravity. The experience has been shown in some the world’s leading cultural organisations including London’s Natural History Museum and the Australian Museum in Sydney, but now thanks to PlayStation VR you can watch this incredible experience without having to leave your sofa.
