The Farm 51’s Chernobyl VR Project has become one of the most highly anticipated educational virtual reality (VR) experiences since its unveiling back in April 2015. In that time the project has undergone a Steam Greenlight campaign and become a mainstay for VR events across the globe. Now, early adopters of VR have the chance to vocalise their interest in the project through a pre-order campaign.
Built using Reality 51, The Farm 51’s proprietary technology, and Unreal Engine 4, Chernobyl VR Project uses advanced 3D scans of locations and buildings, spherical photography, stereoscopic videos and augmented reality solutions. Everything is fully adapted to state-of-the-art VR headsets, such as Samsung Gear VR, HTC Vive, Oculus Rift and PlayStation VR.
Available to pre-order via G2A.com now, Chernobyl VR Project pre-orders are presented more like donations. Interested parties have three options for payment amounts, of which a greater percentage is donated to charities supporting victims of the disaster. 20% of purchases of ‘Bronze’ edition, 30% of purchases of ‘Silver’ edition, and 60% of purchases of ‘Hall of Fame’ edition will be distributed with additional help of the following prominent organizations and individuals:
