Launch of Raid on the Ruhr "Dambusters"

 

VR Education (AIM: VRE; Euronext Growth: 6VR), a leading virtual reality ('VR') technology company focused on the education space, is pleased to announce that the commercial release of its latest showcase experience, "Raid on the Ruhr", will take place on 29 March 2019 and will be available on Oculus Rift, HTC Vive and Windows Mixed Reality devices.

Raid on the Ruhr is a virtual reality education experience based on the famous Dambusters mission of May 1943. A team of bomber and night fighter veterans were assembled from every part of the Commonwealth under a new squadron, codenamed Squadron 'X', to deliver the brainchild of inventor Barnes Wallis, the 'bouncing bomb'.

Raid on the Ruhr allows users to experience the mission first hand and to fly the famous Lancaster bomber on its journey from the UK to the industrial heartland of Germany, the Ruhr valley.

David Whelan, CEO of VR Education, said:

"Following on from our highly popular and award-winning experiences Apollo 11 VR, Titanic VR and 1943: Berlin Blitz, we are delighted to announce the release date of our next title, Raid on the Ruhr. Building on our previous research with the BBC while creating the Berlin Blitz experience, we have created this new title from the ground up providing users with more control as they fly the Lancaster to its target and drop the famous bouncing bomb on the Möhne and Edersee Dams.

"This title adds to our back catalogue of immersive experiences and provides more assets and content for our ENGAGE platform where educators and corporate trainers can create their own learning content."
