Popular American cable TV channel AMC has launched the AMC VR app for Gear VR and Daydream featuring 360 video content, movie trailers, and more.

Now available on Gear VR and Daydream (and as flat apps on iOS and Android), the AMC VR app allows users to enter the worlds of original series such as The Walking Dead, Into the Badlands, and more.

Viewers can experience scenarios such as being trapped in a car and needing to survive the night from The Walking Dead, or getting Hong Kong-style martial arts training from the Into the Badlands fight camp. The ‘Screening Room’ in the app grants a look at recent AMC original series trailers and behind the scenes videos. Below is the list of the app’s initial content lineup:

The Walking Dead (Directed by Greg Nicotero)

  • Attacked Pt. 1: Trapped – You’re trapped in an abandoned car. Can you last until help arrives?
  • Attacked Pt. 2: Surrounded – The walkers are closing in now, and time is running out.
  • Attacked Pt. 3: Devoured – Unfortunately, not everyone makes it out alive in this world.
  • Attacked Pt. 4: Herd – You’re the walking dead. Join the herd.

        Experience is what you have when you consume media, not the media itself. Thanks for the tip though!

    That’s pretty awesome. Really hoping Telltale makes a VR Walking Dead game someday.
