Step inside a dystopian near-future Los Angeles with Blade Runner 2049: Replicant Pursuit, coming to Gear VR on July 21!

We partnered with Alcon Interactive Group to bring Blade Runner into VR with a trio of experiences from three different developers. This gives fans the chance to explore one of science fiction’s most memorable worlds from multiple perspectives.

In the first installment, from Turtle Rock Studios, you pilot the iconic spinner to track down and “retire” a rogue replicant.

Attending Comic-Con? Check out the Blade Runner Experience, where we blend VR with physical space for heightened immersion, including a replica of the White Dragon Noodle Bar. No badge? No problem! The installation is open to the public July 20 – 23 (first come, first served).

We’ll release two more interactive Blade Runner experiences (available on both Gear VR and Rift) around the film’s premiere in October. Not only will these experiences give people a taste of this beloved neo-noir universe in a uniquely visceral way, they’ll also expand the overall story for a transmedia encounter like no other.

Until then, we’re patiently counting electric sheep.
