Comic-Con 2015 kicked off with an awesome Preview Night this past Wednesday, which included the unveiling of Legendary's new VR app. Now, hot on the heels of that debut, which featured three unique virtual reality experiences viewable on the new Google Cardboard, Legendary is bringing the Warcraft and Crimson Peak experiences to a wider audience by publishing them to YouTube 360 (Chrome browser necessary), Google's recently launched streaming video service that lets viewers look in any direction. Not just where the camera is pointing, without the need of any additional hardware.
Now, fans all over the world will be able to enter the world of Legendary's newest titles by visiting YouTube 360 and exploring these experiences, which launched at SDCC 2015, as immersive 360-degree video, or through Google Cardboard. To join in the fun, visit Google Cardboard right now! We have two clips from this amazing experience, though they only hint at the wonder the true VR experience holds. We have a description of both immersive worlds, followed by the video itself.
