Nostalgic action-adventure title Ready Player One is due to be released in cinemas on 29th March, 2018. With virtual reality (VR) such an important part of the story of the book and film, naturally there will be VR experiences to complement the release. No less that eight VR experiences inspired by Ready Player One are due to release on HTC Vive.
