We’ve been ready for an official Star Wars digital actuality expertise for a while. With the film popping out subsequent month, that point is virtually now. In an announcement at the moment on StarWars.com, we acquired some updates on what to anticipate.
Right here’s what they needed to say:
Coming on December 2 is a new digital actuality expertise developed together with Google and Verizon. It will feature the primary-of-its-type serialized Google Cardboard Virtual Reality (VR) expertise that mixes a compelling story, which ties instantly into the opening of Star Wars: The Drive Awakens, with the very newest chopping-edge Virtual Reality know-how. The Google Cardboard Virtual Reality expertise will stay within the official Star Wars app and is accessible on each iOS and Android units.
Sure, not solely will there be content material, however Google’s placing out some Star Wars-themed Cardboard thingy-doos to view the stuff. Overlook the “Cardboard isn’t actual VR” argument for a second…you’re going to need to test it out.
You possibly can snag one of many themed Cardboards in a Verizon retailer on December 2nd…solely. There’s 4 totally different ones, and I’m positive that they’ll develop into collectible. As does something bodily having to do with Star Wars. Good rating by Verizon. The content material will probably be out there on the Star Wars official app for iOS and Android.
The group behind the content material itself, Industrial Mild & Magic’s ILMxLAB, has been cranking away on creating immersive content material for no less than six months, so it’s gotta be good.
When you wait, Star-Wars-Up your Google apps.
