Planet of the Apes comes to VR

The FoxNext VR Studio has announced it'll be bringing the popular film franchise Planet of the Apes to virtual reality in April with Crisis on the Planet of the Apes VR,

“VR has always held the promise of bringing together the cinematic storytelling of film and the deeply immersive interactivity of games. Crisis on the Planet of the Apes VR takes this potential to the next level,” said Brendan Handler, SVP & GM, FoxNext VR Studio.

“We set out to give the fan a lead role in this dark Planet of the Apes world – to feel the ape’s strength, power and movement as he fights his way to safety.”

Due to release on April 3rd on PlayStation VR, Oculus Rift, and HTC Vive, the first-person action-adventure VR game is set in-between the Rise and Dawn of the Planet of the Apes movies. Players will assume the role of a primate captured and forced into deadly conflict with humans, fighting for their lives as they attempt to escape captivity.

Produced in partnership with Imaginati Studios, FoxNext say that Crisis on the Planet of the Apes VR will see players "climb, jump and shoot through the chaos of a violent new world to escape with your fellow apes and return home to Caesar."   

Check out the teaser trailer below:

“The Apes franchise supplies the perfect opportunity for players to become part of an apocalyptic world from the perspective of a different species for the first time ever,” Martin Alltimes, CEO, Imaginati Studios.

“We wanted to balance visceral combat with a plot-driven narrative that leaves you questioning your innate allegiance to humanity.” 

Crisis on the Planet of the Apes VR will be available on April 3 on PlayStation VR, Oculus Rift, and HTC Vive for $22.95.

Brother QL-820NWB Professional Label Printer

It’s easy to set up, it’s compact and quiet when printing and to top if off, the print quality is excellent. This is hands down the best printer I’ve used for printing labels.

The print quality also does not disappoint, it’s clear, bold, doesn’t smudge and the text is perfectly sized.
