Gearing up for the return of The Walking Dead, which is heading into its 8th season on Sunday, October 22nd, AMC has released VR videos called The Walking Dead 360 Experience.
As of now, there are four 360 Experience videos. First you’re trapped in a car, then the walkers close in on you, you’re then torn apart and eaten, and finally, you stumble along in a herd.
These are best viewed using any VR gear you might have. Or, if you don’t have a carboard VR box, like the one I got from a magazine a few months ago, you should watch it full screen on your desktop/laptop computer. Scroll around with your mouse to get the 360 experience. The second video was the most startling.
The Walking Dead 360 Experience (Pt. 1): Trapped
The Walking Dead 360 Experience (Pt. 2): Surrounded
The Walking Dead 360 Experience (Pt. 3): Devoured
The Walking Dead 360 Experience (Pt.4): Herd
