With Paranormal Activity: The Ghost Dimension slated to be the series’ finale, fans thought they could look forward to some closure. However, this thought turned out to be incredibly wrong. Paranormal Activity is moving on to bigger and better projects.

Accompanying the final film is a virtual reality game demo at select AMC theaters across North America. The first person survival-horror game debuted on October 23rd and fans rushed to give it a try. 

The demo for the game is using the new HTC Vive virtual reality system, which received resoundingly positive remarks at GDC conference earlier this year. Even though the demo is only playable on the HTC Vive, there are plans to release the game on another VR platforms such as  PlayStation’s Project Morpheus and the Oculus Rift. 

If the game is successful, Beast Media Group plans to continue the series through the new medium. Is Paranormal Activity the gateway game that leads to a path of success for virtual reality? I’ll let you guys be the judge so head on over to any of these local theaters to test it out.
