Last year mobile developer Supercell created a 360-degree video for its massively popular videogame Clash of Clans. Now the studio has done it again, this time delivering an immersive video based on the Hog Rider characters.
Just like the first video, Clash of Clans: Hog Rider 360° takes a humorous jaunt into the videogame’s universe, following a team of Hog Riders as they head into battle. Hog Riders are burly blokes wielding massive hammers whilst riding hogs (funnily enough). In Clash of Clans their special ability allows them to jump over walls, directly attacking enemy defences.
The sees the team jump the enemy wall and charge straight through the base, with explosions and electrical bolts flying everywhere. Then a magical healing circle is put down restoring some health. Suddenly then rider in front activates a hidden spring trap hurtling several riders into the air and up into the clouds. As they start to descend an arena comes into view, with several battles raging on. Upon landing the riders come across a giant skeleton which then ends the video.
You can watch it below, controlling the video viewpoint with the mouse or WASD keys. But for the best experience load it up through the YouTube app on a smartphone and use a virtual reality (VR) headset.
