NatGeo, Oculus Partner on Antarctic VR

NatGeo, Oculus Partner on Antarctic VR

National Geographic and Oculus have partnered on a virtual reality experience that takes users on a trek across Antarctica.

The 30-minute experience takes explorers on a journey across the snowy tundra with a kayak ride and rock climbing included. Explorers must survive a snowstorm during their brief virtual expedition.

“National Geographic continues to experiment in the immersive storytelling space,” says Jenna Pirog, senior director, immersive experiences, National Geographic. “This latest partnership with Oculus and Force Field is in line with our mission to entertain with a purpose. We’re using the latest visual technology to spark curiosity about our world and enable people to better understand it.”

National Geographic’s VR experience will launch on Oculus later this spring. It will join other VR titles from companies such as Hasbro.
