Experience the Freedom of the Just Cause Wingsuit
In one of the strangest, yet most appropriate, promotions in gaming history Avalanche studios have released a virtual wingsuit tour of Medici, the setting for the upcoming Just Cause 3. The app will allow players to glide around the the lush fields, quaint villages and metropolitan areas of this fictional Mediterranean country. Players can even get their hands on a Just Cause 3 cardboard cut out VR headset that can turn their phones into the ultimate (fake) VR wingsuit experience.
Check out the press release and trailer below for more info on this crazy promo.
We’re excited to announce the release of ‘THE WINGSUIT EXPERIENCE’ a 360 Degree VR app brought to you by JUST CAUSE 3, which is available today for free download to iPhone, iPad and Android devices.
Join Rico Rodriguez as he skydives and wingsuits his way across the beautiful Mediterranean island of Medici. Using your smartphone’s gyrometer, the app offers the world’s first 360-degree in-game, interactive video experience, allowing you to freely move the camera to rotate the view of the world below.
The experience can be further intensified through use of Google Cardboard – and other VR goggles – which allows thrill-seekers to experience the app in VR, moving the camera viewpoint with your head as if you are flying in a Wingsuit behind Rico.
“In order to show the world of Just Cause 3 in 360-degrees, in-game, we’ve captured over 10 TB of high resolution data to bring you this experience,” explains Ron Bakker, founder of Mindlight, the developer of the Wingsuit Experience, “this will allow you to immerse yourself in the most explosive sandbox ever made, ahead of the game’s release this December.”
THE WINGSUIT EXPERIENCE, brought to you by Just Cause 3 is available now on both the App Store, and the Android Store for free.
