20th Century Fox has already announced one virtual reality (VR) experience for the upcoming San Diego Comic-Con on 24th – 27th July 2014 based on its X-Men film franchise. Now the company has revealed that it will have a second exhibit that uses the Oculus Rift head-mounted display (HMD) at the show, this time based on its supernatural police drama television series, Sleepy Hollow.
In this new VR experience users will travel to the town of Sleepy Hollow, New York, where they will be given a warning from resurrected Colonial soldier, Ichabod Crane and eventually come face-to-face with the show’s Headless Horeseman. The experience will be located at the Petco Interactive Zone/Lexus Premiere Lot on 100 Park Boulevard (Cross Streets of Park Boulevard & Imperial Avenue) in San Diego.
20th Century Fox isn’t the only company to utilise the Oculus Rift at this year’s Comic-Con. Film studio Warner Bros. recently revealed that it would be bringing a new experience based on its upcoming Into the Storm film to the show. A range of VR supported videogames are also expected to be on display. VRFocus will continue to follow any and all news surrounding VR, reporting back with the latest.
