The company, which develops virtual reality apps, games and experiences, expects the PlayStation VR version of Apollo 11 HD to be available in the second quarter of 2019.
The new high-definition version builds on VR Education’s original Apollo 11 VR showcase experience, which launched back in 2016 and has been downloaded more than 145,000 times since.
Apollo 11 HD allows users to witness the moon landing first-hand in virtual reality, from the viewpoint of the US astronaut Neil Armstrong.
The new HD version is a complete rebuild of all the assets from the original experience with new models, new textures and new animations.
“The original Apollo 11 was built when we had a small team of three working for the group,” said chief executive David Whelan.
“This new version enhances the user experience greatly as we have had the time and expertise to give the experience a level of polish not achievable before, due to new technology and overall talent available at VR Education today.”
He added: “The coming year represents the 50th anniversary of the moonwalk and we believe Apollo 11 HD will be in high demand throughout the next 12 months and beyond.”
