Sony Pictures Virtual Reality today announced Spider-Man: Homecoming VR, a new multi-platform promotional VR experience based on Columbia Pictures’ Spider-Man: Homecoming, one of the most biggest superhero movies of the summer, in theaters July 7.
Guided by the helpful artificial intelligence unit built into the new Spider-Man suit, Spider-Man: Homecoming VR offers players the chance to suit up as Spider-Man, hone their web-shooting skills, and sling high above New York City in pursuit of the Vulture. Spider-Man: Homecoming VR will be available for free across all major VR platforms, including PlayStation VR, HTC Vive and Oculus Rift, starting June 30, leading up to the July 7 theatrical release of Spider-Man: Homecoming.
“Spider-Man is the most beloved superhero in the world, so we knew Spider-Man: Homecoming VR had to be something special. Fans can wear the suit, fire the new web shooters – THWIP! – and swing through the air in a faceoff with The Vulture. It’s every fan’s fantasy turned into virtual reality,” said Jake Zim, Senior Vice President, Virtual Reality at Sony Pictures.
Leading up to its in-home release, fans can experience Spider-Man: Homecoming VR at special events and select movie theaters worldwide, starting this weekend at select Cinemark Theaters in the US and at the Cine Europe tradeshow in Barcelona.
Spider-Man: Homecoming VR was produced by Sony Pictures Virtual Reality and developed by the award-winning agency CreateVR, using industry-leading Dell Precision workstations powered by Intel.
