Some big movie studios have taken to launching VR experiences in order to create hype for their upcoming movies and that’s precisely what 20th Century Fox is doing for the much-awaited Assassin’s Creed movie. A collaboration between the studio, AMD, and Dell’s Alienware is going to bring an Assassin’s Creed VR experience to select AMC theaters across the United States.
AMC theaters in New York City, Los Angeles, Austin, and San Francisco will show a virtual reality experience based on the Assassin’s Creed film starting December 1st through January 2nd.
The participating theaters will be supplied with free Oculus Rift kiosks where visitors can check out the VR experience. The footage itself is going to be premiered tonight at The Game Awards and will be released for free as well through Oculus Video for the Oculus Rift and the Samsung Gear VR.
Participating locations include Century City 15 in Los Angeles, Orange 30 in Orange, California, Lincoln Square 13 in NYC, 34th Street 14 in NYC, Barton Creek 14 in Austin, and Metreon 16 in San Francisco.
These select AMC theaters will run the Assassin’s Creed VR experience during afternoon hours starting at around 2 or 3 pm every day up until 10 pm. Assassin’s Creed movie itself is scheduled for release on December 21st.
