The Game Of Thrones Title Sequence Gets A 360° VR Upgrade
If you’re a Game of Thrones fan, there’s a good chance you’ve always wanted to wander around inside the world of the show. Now you can—kind of. HBO, Facebook, and Oculus have joined forces with Elastic—the company behind that iconic opening—to create a 360° virtual reality version of the show’s title sequence. This takes you out of the passive spectator role, allowing your eyes to wander wherever they wish for an exciting immersion in all things Westeros.
Part of the fun of this experience is VR’s suitability for Easter egg hunting. By following your curiosity, you are likely stumble upon a variety of carefully hidden curiosities. If you want to save yourself some time on trial and error, Pocket-lint has shared a couple suggestions: (1) take a peek under the Braavos Titan for a uniquely grotesque sight and (2) look no further than your shadow for a potential dragon sighting.
The sixth season of Game of Thrones premieres April 24 on HBO. Fire up Chrome and immerse yourself in the excitement below.
