The Oculus Quest is Facebook’s new all-in-one virtual reality headset that the tech giant hopes will help to take VR mainstream.
Apollo 11 is retailing for €9.99 and is available on the Oculus Quest store from launch.
“We expect the Oculus Quest to be extremely popular globally and for this platform to quickly become the most used VR device, enticing many new users to jump onboard,” said chief executive Dave Whelan.
“As Apollo 11 VR was one of the most popular VR applications when it was released over three years ago it makes complete sense to release an updated version of the application on the Oculus Quest, providing the Apollo 11 showcase experience to people new to VR.”
He added: “2019 is also the 50th Anniversary of the moon landing and we expect to see strong demand for this title through the year.”
VR Education launched the original Apollo 11 VR back in 2016, but it released an update, high-definition version at the end of last year. In total, it has been downloaded more than 150,000 times.
The experience allows users to witness the moon landing first-hand in virtual reality, from the viewpoint of the US astronaut Neil Armstrong.
In afternoon trading, shares in VR Education had rocketed 14% higher to 10p.
