Hot on the heels of season 3 of the Netflix original series DreamWorks Voltron: Legendary Defender, we’re proud to present a new cinematic, episodic VR experience called Dreamworks Voltron VR Chronicles. Developed by Digital Domain, in collaboration with Universal Brand Development, this unique adventure puts the user in the role of the Blue Paladin, Lance, as you’re placed at the center of a massive conflict between the Voltron force and the Galra Emperor, Zarkon.
Episode 1: Seeds of Corruption
When Lance discovers the remains of a lost alien race deep within enemy space, he releases an unstoppable force that threatens to corrupt the Paladins’ control over both their Lions and Voltron. Jumping into the heart of the adventure, you must overcome the corrupt force and relentless threat of Zarkon as you struggle to solve the ancient mystery and fight your way to victory.
Fans of the show will be thrilled to know that each of the TV show’s voice actors have lent their amazing voice talents to the experience. We were also excited to involve the showrunners who provided some of their writing expertise and thorough knowledge of the Voltron universe. It’s been Digital Domain’s plan to ensure that DreamWorks Voltron VR Chronicles is as authentic as it gets. Once you get your hands on the experience, we hope you feel the love and the insane amount of hours we’ve put into creating this cinematic VR adventure!
The cinematics in this episode feature a visual style reminiscent of the animated TV series but presented for the first time in fully immersive 360° VR! The use of VR technology allows for more dynamic storytelling and incredible in-your-face action sequences. The experience will also feature moments of interactivity where the user takes control of Lance’s actions. These interactive moments include several highly engaging puzzles as well as exciting missions where the user pilots the Blue Lion, battling Galra forces with an array of highly advanced weapon systems.
Developed by Digital Domain, a leading creator of in-house original content, visual effects and immersive experiences, DreamWorks Voltron VR Chronicles will be available for purchase at PlayStation Store starting September 26.
All of us at Digital Domain look forward to you getting your hands on this VR experience! We absolutely, positively cannot wait to hear what you think. For those of you who simply cannot wait, pre-order it exclusively at PlayStation Store today!
