Latest news

    20th Century Fox’s VR game division FoxNext VR Studio today launched their Planet of the Apes-themed game for PSVR, HTC Vive and Oculus Rift. Called Crisis on the Planet of the Apes VR, the first-person action-adventure game takes place between the events in Rise of the Planet of the Apes (2011) and Dawn of the Planet of the Apes (2014), where you play as an intelligent ape imprisoned in a heavily guarded scientific facility.

    Update (04/03/18): ‘Crisis on the Planet of the Apes VR’ is now out, and with a fresh launch trailer to boot – linked above and at the bottom of the article. The original article announcing the game follows below.

    Original Article (02/27/18): Produced in partnership with Imaginati Studios, the game takes place during the throws of the deadly strain of Simian Flu which has decimated the human population. You, an ape with human-level intelligence, are tasked with escaping the testing facility by banding together with your fellow primate test subjects, and returning to Caesar, the series’ intelligent chimpanzee leader. Yes, you’re an ape with an M-16 and a grudge.

    Crisis on the Planet of the Apes VR is slated to arrive on all supported VR platforms on April 3rd for $15.

    “The Apes franchise supplies the perfect opportunity for players to become part of an apocalyptic world from the perspective of a different species for the first time ever,” Martin Alltimes, CEO, Imaginati Studios. “We wanted to balance visceral combat with a plot-driven narrative that leaves you questioning your innate allegiance to humanity.”

    FoxNext had a hand in several VR experiences including Alien Covenant: In Utero VR Experience (2017) and a 360 behind-the-scenes look at the making of Isle of Dogs (2018) film made with Felix & Paul Studios, but Planet of the Apes VR is FoxNext’s first VR game as such. The studio’s second VR game based on the Alien franchise is also currently in production.
