Sólfar Studios immersive virtual reality game, Everest VR, which allows players to experience summiting Mount Everest is now available for HTC Vive via SteamVR.
Built using Unreal Engine 4, Everest VR allows players to experience all of the thrills of scaling the world’s most famous mountain through a sequence of first-person experiences.
With a spectacular visual authenticity and a high amount of interactivity, players will be able to embark on a journey which includes notable milestones and events from Base Camp, the Khumbu Icefall, Hillary Step, Camp Four, and the ascent to Summit. Additionally, Everest VR features God Mode allowing users to take in the sweeping views from a breathtaking vantage point standing above the Himalayas.
“For the first time, people will be able to experience the thrills and milestones of climbing Mt. Everest from the convenience and safety of virtual reality devices,” said Kjartan Pierre Emilsson, co-founder and CEO of Sólfar Studios.
“While many have called 2016, ‘The Year of VR,’ a majority of the public is still unfamiliar with the space. We see the release of Everest VR as a way to showcase the power of the medium, by delivering a transcendent experience that goes far beyond the goal of winning a game – allowing users to experience the physical and emotional sensation of conquering one of world’s greatest wonders.”
The minimum required specifications to enjoy Everest VR on HTC Vive are a Windows PC with 8 GB RAM, an Intel® i5-4590 or greater CPU, an NVIDIA GeForce GTX 970 or better or an AMD RX480 or better GPU.
