Fans of Netflix’s Stranger Things can get immersed in the show’s world with Stranger Things: The VR Experience, available now.
The interactive game is currently available for free on the PlayStation Store, with a few hardware requirements. PlayStation 4 owners will need the PlayStation VR headset, PlayStation Camera, and two PlayStation Move controllers to run the game. Players will find themselves in the Byers’ home, which has the iconic holiday lights strewn above Joyce’s hastily created alphabet wall. Like most VR games, players can then examine the area in first-person and 360 degrees. One motion controller controls your flashlight, while the other is used to move and answer the telephone. Just remember with the first-person gameplay there are bound to be a few jump scares in the mix.
While a build for HTC Vive was reportedly demoed during 2017’s San Diego Comic-Con, there has been no formal release announced for the platform. Players without a PSVR headset can watch the experience below with Google Cardboard or on a standard device for a non-360 experience. Of course, the video spoils the game, so proceed with caution.
Despite the VR experience launching well after season 2 of the show released, it seems the game will cover events from the first season of the sci-fi horror series. For a different game that leads into and includes the show’s most recent season, BonusXP’s Stranger Things: The Game for iOS and Android provides a 16-bit top-down adventure.
Stranger Things: The VR Experience is available now for PlayStation VR.
