HTC Vive Brings Ready Player One VR Experiences to You

Visit the OASIS with your Vive.

HTC Vive and Ready Player One today announced eight pieces of virtual reality content inspired by Steven Spielberg’s new action adventure, “Ready Player One.” All eight pieces of content can be enjoyed on Vive, at home or at location-based VR arcades across the country and will be free to download on Viveport and Steam before the film’s March 29, 2018, release, with multiple experiences debuting at 2018 South by Southwest (SXSW) Conference and Festival for press and attendees.

“’Ready Player One’ has inspired both the current and future state of the VR industry and Vive is in a unique position to deliver on the promise of VR today,” said Joel Breton, GM of Vive Studios. “We’ve brought together a group of our favorite developers to bring content inspired by ‘Ready Player One’ to life in a way that resonates with audiences long after they have left the theater.”

People come to the OASIS for all the things they can do, but they stay for all the things they can be. With millions of permutations, the "Ready Player One: Avatar Creator" lets you create your own highly detailed OASIS persona. You can share your custom Avatar with friends and fellow Gunters.

In the "Battle for the OASIS" you need to help to save the OASIS by defeating waves of IOI Sixers. Advance through the trenches of Planet Doom towards the snowy planes that surround Anorak’s Castle. With an arsenal only possible in the OASIS, you must stop IOI from gaining control.

In the "Rise of The Gunters" VR experience, you fight against a nearly invincible army of highly trained IOI Sixers. Proceed with caution as you defeat Sixers, collect their coins, find power-ups and survive a merciless onslaught of hyper-explosive kinetic action for as long as it takes. The OASIS is yours. Take it back. Battle the IOI by yourself or with up to two fellow Gunters. You find all upcoming Ready Player One VR experiences described on the Vive blog. The HTC Vive is on sale on
