A new dimension for “What If…?”

The new mixed reality experience features the iconic Watcher character, who calls on players to face dangerous variants from across the Multiverse. And the person chosen for this crucial mission is you. The experience is an immersive game within a story, which can appeal to people of different ages.

In the trailer, Wong appears and is tasked by the Watcher with teaching the player how to cast spells and master the power of the Infinity Stones. Although Wong accepts the task somewhat reluctantly, he becomes her mentor on this epic journey. Players will also find versions of characters such as Thanos, Hela, Red Guardian, among others. Check out the trailer:

ILM Immersive promises a deeply immersive experience. “Entering breathtaking environments, players will transition between mixed and virtual reality as they explore new and iconic MCU locations,” the company said in a statement. “Fans will use their hands and eyes to interact with the world around them, becoming immersed in stunning visuals and spatial audio, working to save fate from reality as they live their narrative journey. Together, these innovative features and more will remind players that time, space and reality are more than a linear path.”

Launch details on Apple Vision Pro

“What If…?” will be available on Apple Vision Pro starting May 30 and can be purchased as a free app for a limited time. However, interested parties need to be aware that the Apple Vision Pro costs $3,500, making this experience a significant investment.

The reality is that hardly anyone will decide to buy Apple’s new mixed reality glasses just because of this experience, but sometimes it can become a turning point for those who were already loving the device and waiting for a good excuse to buy. Remembering that the Apple Vision Pro is not yet being sold here in Brazil.

In addition to uniting the passion of many Marvel fans, the release of “What If…?” in mixed reality on Apple Vision Pro represents a significant advancement in the way users can interact with their favorite stories in a more immersive way.

“What If…? – An Immersive Story is the result of what can happen when the incredible talent of ILM Immersive, Marvel Studios and Disney+ comes together to push the boundaries of technology in the service of telling our stories in new and exciting ways.”said executive producer Shereif M. Fattouh “This project touches on the heart of the desire our studios share to constantly experiment and innovate, and thanks to the capabilities of Apple Vision Pro, we can place you directly inside a Universe that means so much to all of us. I can’t wait for fans to become the hero in this completely new way.”
