Experience Megadeth in Virtual Reality
Released on January 22, Megadeth Dystopia Virtual Reality Experience includes five performances filmed in 360 degree video, an interview with the band, a produced 360 degree music video, and a Virtual Reality environment for fans to interact with each other.
The Experience is available on Google Play, the Apple App Store, and is coming soon to Gear VR.
The VR experience, which accompanies Megadeth’s fifteenth studio album, is the first major VR experience packaged with a new album release.
A special Megadeth VR Cardbox Deluxe Pack is available for purchase and contains a Megadeth VR Headset, a Megadeth Dystopia CD, and the CEEK app access code to gain access to the performances.
The five songs included with the app are Fatal Illusion, The Threat is Real, Dystopia, Post American World, and Poisonous Shadows. The Megadeth VR Cardbox Deluxe Pack can be purchased on the CEEK website, or Megadeth’s website, and also at major retailers such as Bestbuy and Gamestop.
The Megadeth Dystopia VR Experience was executive produced by CEEK president, Mary Spio and directed by Blair Underwood with EON Reality providing the Virtual Reality backbone that powers the app. When put together, fans are able from anywhere to experience the power of Megadeth’s performances from anywhere in the world all from their smartphone.
“We are extremely excited to have partnered with EON Reality to use their VR gaming and simulation engine, vast expertise and knowledge to make this project a reality,” said Mary Spio, CEEK VR founder and president. “Together we have created a robust social platform for distributing the Megadeth VR Experience and much more. Our goal with CEEK is to release singular experiences throughout the year, grow our content along with our audiences, and ultimately become the goto stop for the best in VR Concerts, 3D Movies and truly amazing experiences and the Dystopia VR Experience is the tip of that iceberg.”
