Description: Welcome to Immersive Combat – where Vikings, pirates, knights and cyberpunks fight in a strange and mysterious cinematic VR universe. What links all these warriors from different periods and places? Follow the stories and characters of the award-winning series to find out.

Review: Immersive Combat is the first-ever action series in 360 VR. The idea is it will place you in the action and give you the ability to feel what the character is feeling and really feel part of the action, rather than simply watching it. This first demo features several styles of fighting and some amazing locations. The quality of it is very impressive indeed and no stitching problems that I could find anyway.

There are all sorts of fighting styles and battles going on in this demo. From Kung Fu to Muay Thai and even some sword to sword Medieval Combat, there really is a good range of styles and the scenery they have used in each one is just as impressive.

Immersive Combat is indeed a brave try to bring something new in the world of 360 video entertainment and watching the demo, certain parts looked amazing like the fighting on the ships and the fans with colourful blur trails, but some of the closer, hand to hand, weapon to weapon combat is a little…well…fake looking. The problem with being able to look where you want is that you will see the faults, the soft / acting punches if you want to see them. The success of this series will, of course, depend a lot on the scenarios they are taking place in. Sometimes an action scene no matter how well rehearsed can be lost in the scenery behind it and never is that truer than with 360° video.
