Virry VR for PlayStation Takes You to a Safari
PlayStation has released another interesting non-gaming experience for its Virtual Reality system, Virry VR, which takes you real close to Kenya’s wildlife.
The Ultimate Virtual Reality Safari on PlayStation
Virry VR will let you see the amazing African fauna as close as you can possibly get, the experience includes everything from quite rhinos taking a bath to wild lions eating on their preys. All footage was taken on Lewa Downs, a protected UNESCO heritage site. The place is full of the most exotic and beautiful animals, leopards, hyenas, zebras, and even elephants.
“From feeding lions with slabs of juicy meat to sharing mud baths with rhinos, Virry VR provides users with unique wildlife experiences through some of the most breathtaking real life VR filming to date.”
The virtual reality cameras used in this footage allowed Virry VR to record animals from the shortest distance possible, 2 centimeters away from the camera.
“This allows users to engage directly with wild animals through interactive scenarios; in one the player is asked to shake their controller to place meat on the savannah, shortly afterward a lion comes right up to the player and even appears to lick their face.”
There are bad news, though, Virry VR is currently available only for the European version of the PlayStation Store and Sony hasn’t said anything yet if the safari experience might reach to US users. But we put our hopes up and are confident about it because this isn’t the first time a game gets into Europe before entering the US. We will keep you updated.
