A new expanded Fantastic Beasts Virtual Reality experience is out
Pottermore announced a new version of The Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them VR Experience on Google Daydream and PlayStation VR. After their demo in 2016, they've expanded it to create a full on Fantastic Beasts virtual reality experience, letting Potterheads and wizards alike climb inside the world of Scamander's suitcase.
Pottermore revealed that: “As you move from zone to zone, you can come face-to-face with Graphorns, Bowtruckles, Occamys, Nifflers and a truly spectacular Thunderbird. You’ll also be able to perform spells – spells that will let you actually interact with the creatures, adding a whole new layer of realism. And the beasts themselves are quite imposing – trust us, you haven’t felt real awe until you’ve stared an enormous Occamy in the eye...”
One of the reasons this new VR upgrade to the program into a full-fledged VR experience is that it marks a return to focusing on Scamander's favorite living creatures: those who aren't human.
It also gives fans of the Potter series the experience that many of us have dearly wanted: the use of a wand. The VR experience package comes with a small hand-held controller that, when the VR program is on, turns into a wand, and casts spells, both on the surroundings and on the creatures, themselves.
And why not dress like Newt Scamander for a all-rounded Fantastic Beasts experience.
