The Walking Dead Meets Virtual Reality? New Content For Milk VR Announced At CES
Virtual reality is Samsung's next big thing. To this end, they've created the dedicated platform Milk VR to run with the Gear VR System. Samsung has committed itself to putting out new and exciting content for users and they're working with the people who brought you The Walking Dead to do it.
The announcement came at CES that there was a special video project that would be added to the curated video line up for Milk VR, the video platform newly attached to Gear VR.
It was further revealed that the same company that created the hit show and comic series, The Walking Dead will also be creating content to run the Gear VR that would be available through Milk VR reported Road To VR.
Although it does not explicitly say that it will be zombies, David Alpert, EVP of Skybound Entertainment, did have some insight as to what the episodes would look like. The new content will be a mystery/suspense thriller and would be shown in an episodic format.
Considering that the company's main export is The Walking Dead and a look at its other titles is heavily on the side of creepy but also super heroes, there's no real telling what will come out of this.
This comes on the tails of Samsung's recent announcement regarding Milk VR, the new platform that will work in conjunction with Gear VR. Milk VR is a curated selection of VR experiences that will be exclusive for use with the Gear VR system.
