Universal, Digital Domain Announce Voltron VR Chronicles
Today, Digital Domain and Universal have announced Voltron VR Chronicles, a new virtual reality game for HTC Vive, Oculus Rift, and PlayStation VR based on the Netflix animated series Voltron: Legendary Defender.
In Voltron VR Chronicles, the player will take the role of one of the paladins of Voltron to participate in space battles, solve puzzles, and complete challenges. Not much gameplay has been shown so far, but it's fair to speculate that the game will be a brief experience similar to Batman Arkham VR and PlayStation Worlds, due to its $14.99 price point. The game will be released on September 26, but PS VR owners who pre-order it today will get a 20% discount.
The first season of Voltron: Legendary Defender premiered on Netflix on June 10, 2016, with the second season premiering on January 20. The third season, which is half the length of the previous two seasons, premiered on August 4 and the fourth season will premiere on October 13. The series is notable for being made by some of the same people and the same animation studio behind Avatar: The Last Airbender and The Legend of Korra.
