HBO has partnered with Survios to launch “Westworld Awakening,” a virtual reality game based on the TV series “Westworld.”

Set during the events of “Westworld” season 2, “Westworld Awakening” is a narrative-driven, single-player stealth exploration game. It transports players into the shoes of a host within the Mesa facility who has suddenly attained self-awareness.

“HBO is known for producing some of the most compelling shows, offering creative storylines and complex characters that keep our viewers coming back for more,” says Aaron Nonis, vice president, interactive and immersive experiences, HBO. “Through VR experiences, we are bringing these fictional people and places to life for our viewers and letting them interact and engage with our shows in new, immersive ways. ‘Westworld Awakening’ is the perfect fusion of the right creators and story, the right IP and the right platform that allows us to create the next-generation playground for our ‘Westworld’ fans.”

Developed in collaboration with “Westworld,” the game is currently live in more than 400 VR arcades worldwide and available for download on Steam, Oculus, and Viveport.

“Westworld” is the latest sci-fi series to get the VR treatment. The BBC series “Doctor Who” recently was leveraged for a virtual title by game studios PlayStack and Maze Theory.
