BBC Brings VR Nature Experience ‘BBC Earth: Life in VR’ to Daydream

News Bits


BBC Worldwide and Google have partnered to bring a new BBC Earth VR experience to Daydream. Dubbed BBC Earth: Life in VR, the computer generated experience takes the user to the Californian coast, and the bustling underwater world filled with sea life nearby.

Production studio Preloaded says that much like a conventional documentary, Life in VR has a “strong narrative voice to tell a core story,” but critically features an open world design that they say both provides “agency and rewards exploration.” Preloaded also says the experience was meticulously researched, and designed with VR newcomers in mind.

The educational experience boasts a number of popular animals which were featured in the BBC Blue Planet TV series, including sea otters, giant squids, great white sharks and sperm whales. You’ll even get a chance to shrink down in size to see microscopic sea life in action.
