Description: Experience what it feels like to climb Mount Everest through a sequence of immersive first person locations as you strive to reach the top of the world. Incomparable visual fidelity combined with player agency in a VR journey that feels both real and emotionally stunning. Prepare for your expedition at Basecamp, traverse the terrifying Khumbu Icefalls, scale the dizzying Lhotse Face to overnight at Camp 4, ascend the perilous Hillary Step, and finally conquer the summit of Everest.

Enter God Mode to reach a unique vantage point of the Himalayas only possible in VR. Towering over the mountain range, this is a stunning VR diorama where you can survey the mountain at human size or at 1500x scale. Follow the path of 18 historical expeditions. EVEREST VR is a powerful first introduction to VR, designed not as a conventional game but as an accessible experience that focuses on the strengths of VR to transport you to impossible locations.

Review: While most people are not going to get much use out of this app, those who plan to climb Everest or one of the surrounding mountains will find it invaluable. With so many facts and interest points crammed into it, you can tell the team who made this have put a lot of time and effort into it. It looks great and even I found most of it interesting even if I have no intention of climbing it. Anyone with even the slightest bit of interest in mountain climbing will enjoy this, but it’s more an instructional experience than any game or enjoyable experience, but that only goes to show how much effort was put into making it.
