There are plenty of PSVR titles vying for my attention, so the few PSVR video experiences that don’t fall into the category of short game, have somewhat passed me by, until now. Chernobyl VR Project, a journey to the abandoned city of Pripyat.
We’ve all seen the pictures and run about the digital recreation in Modern Warfare, but Chernobyl VR Project takes interactive gaming experiences and meshes them with eduction to tell the story of this nuclear tragedy through the medium of VR.
The work has been undertaken by cameramen bold enough to explore the radioactive area, creating 360 movies, panoramas and compiling data so that 3D mapping can be conducted to recreate the area in VR.
The project has existed for some time, releasing on Steam in September last year. Currently it’s still listed as early access, but the developer has promised that with the PSVR release, early access will end.
A tour around Chernobyl and Pripyat from the safety of your own VR headset is something I am really looking forward to.
Chernobyl VR Project will be available on PSVR ‘in the near future’.
