‘Voltron VR Chronicles’ is Coming to All Major VR Platforms in September


Based on the Voltron: Legendary Defender series from Netflix, DreamWorks is launching a single-player game coming to PSVR, HTC Vive, and Oculus Rift on September 26th. Called Voltron VR Chronices, the game promises to deliver an immersive Voltron narrative alongside the chance to pilot the Blue Lion, stand on the bridge of the Castle Ship, and solve interactive puzzles and challenges.

Developed by Digital Domain InteractiveVoltron VR Chronicles puts you in the shoes of Lance, the blue Paladin of Voltron, giving you the duty to pilot the Blue Lion in your battle against the Zarkon’s forces.

According to a PlayStation blogpost, the game is only the first episode in a multi-episode VR series and will be presented both as passive storytelling (i.e. cinematic cutscenes) and “moments of interactivity where the user takes control of Lance’s actions.” The interactive moments feature puzzles, piloting missions, and combat missions where you battle Galra forces with the series’ fantastical sci-fi weapons.

The TV show’s voice actors will also be voicing their respective characters in the show. Showrunners from Voltron: Legendary Defender also collaborated with Digital Domain to make sure the game’s universe was accurate in every way possible.

Pre-orders are already available for PSVR at the 20 percent discounted price of $12. The regular price on all platforms is $15.

    Wow. My kids are going to LOVE this. We are huge Voltron fans around here because the new series is just so good. And we’re big VR fans too. This is going to be great!

  • Be the most obnoxious paladin of all of them…

    And I’ll form the head!

    Wait a second. Blue lion? BLUE lion?

    Not gonna lie here, I just wanna connect my dynotherms, raise my infracells, and form blazing sword in VR. This is really close to a childhood dream come true here. I don’t much care which Voltron I’m driving as long as I get to drive Voltron and not A FOOT.

    Okay, that’s a lie. If this was the original Voltron I would be so foaming at the mouth excited that I wouldn’t even notice I was driving Voltron’s foot.
