Mr. Mercedes, the AT&T Audience Network mystery thriller TV series based on the titular Stephen King novel, is getting a VR escape room soon.
Dubbed Mr. Mercedes: Lair Escape, you step into the basement lair of one of the scariest killers from the mind of Stephen King, Brady Hartsfield (aka ‘Mr. Mercedes’). The VR escape room tosses you into the photorealistic recreation of the psychopath’s lair where you’ll have to solve various puzzles to find your way out. The title is said to incorporate footage directly from the set of Season 2 of the series.
Mr. Mercedes: Lair Escape was created by VR Playhouse, Double A Labs, and AT&T AUDIENCE Network, and was developed with Unreal Engine and Nurulize Atom View, a tool for volumetric data processing, color management, and delivery.
The title is headed to Viveport, HTC’s digital storefront for HTC Vive games, on July 22nd.
Mr. Mercedes: Lair Escape is currently available for demo at San Diego Comic Con, lasting from July 19th to July 21st. RSVP is required, so if you’re at Comic Con this weekend, click here to sign up.
