Launch of Titanic VR

Notice of Interim Results

 

VR Education (AIM: VRE; ESM: 6VR), a leading virtual reality ('VR') technology company focused on the education space, is pleased to announce the launch of Titanic VR, the Group's highly anticipated immersive gaming experience, which will be available for PC, Oculus Rift, HTC Vive, and Windows Mixed Reality from 2:00pm (BST) today.

 

The Titanic VR game allows users to experience the tragic events of the doomed ship through the eyes of a survivor and to virtually explore the wreck on the seabed as she looks today. The game features a fully immersive and historically accurate animated experience which tells the story of the evacuation to lifeboats, based on the eye witness testimonies of survivors of the 1912 tragedy. 

 

The project began its life through a Kickstarter campaign in early 2017. Motion capture technology and extensively-detailed maps of the shipwreck were used to create an accurate 3D depiction of the Titanic, setting the scene for an educational game where players are tasked with navigating the wreck using their submersible and ROV. The game features eight dive missions and seven lab missions.

 

David Whelan, CEO of VR Education, said:

 

"I am delighted to launch Titanic VR following the success of Apollo 11, which has been downloaded over 130,000 times since its launch in 2016.  Titanic VR is a factually animated experience that tells the famous story of the sinking of RMS Titanic as witnessed by survivors. As well as creating a realistic VR experience that tells the story of the tragedy in a compelling way, the game will also serve as a valuable resource for discovering more about the stricken ship through a realistic exploration experience, using detailed maps and 3D models of the historic wreck site. We have used motion capture, face-scanning technology and professional voice actors to immerse users in the story and enable them to relate to the people involved. In developing this we wanted to create an accurate portrayal of events, so it is not only educational, but also emotional and very engaging.

 

"We are confident that Titanic VR will be a great success and will update investors on early-stage demand at the time of the Group's interim results."

The Group will announce its interim results for the six months to 30 June 2018 on Tuesday, 18 September 2018. The Group will be hosting a meeting for analysts at 10.45am at the offices of Buchanan, 107 Cheapside, London EC2V 6DN.
