Sony to release Spider-Man: Homecoming VR on July 7


Sony Pictures Virtual Reality has revealed that Spider-Man: Homecoming VR, a new multi-platform promotional VR experience based on Columbia Pictures’ Spider-Man: Homecoming will release on July 7.

Guided by the helpful artificial intelligence unit built into the new Spider-Man suit, Spider-Man: Homecoming VR will offer players the chance to suit up as Spider-Man, hone their web-shooting skills and sling high above New York City in pursuit of the Vulture.

Spider-Man: Homecoming VR will be available for free across all major VR platforms including PlayStationVR, HTC Vive and Oculus Rift, starting June 30, leading up to the film’s theatrical release.

“Spider-Man is the most beloved superhero in the world, so we knew Spider-Man: Homecoming VR had to be something special. Fans can wear the suit, fire the new web shooters — THWIP! — and swing through the air in a faceoff with The Vulture. It’s every fan’s fantasy turned into virtual reality,” said Jake Zim, Senior Vice President, Virtual Reality at Sony Pictures.

Leading up to its in-home release, fans can experience Spider-Man: Homecoming VR at special events and select movie theaters worldwide, starting this weekend at select Cinemark Theaters in the US and at the CineEurope tradeshow in Barcelona.

 Spider-Man: Homecoming VR has been produced by Sony Pictures Virtual Reality and developed by the award-winning agency CreateVR, using industry-leading Dell Precision workstations powered by Intel.
