AMC recently announced that it has launched a new VR app where fans of “The Walking Dead” and “Into the Badlands” can immerse themselves in the worlds of their favorite TV shows right along the shows’ stars, including Ally Ioannides.
The channel made its first foray into the virtual reality world after the Season 8 premiere of “The Walking Dead” on Sunday, October 23, when AMC released a 360-degree extended scene video of the episode’s final scene.
Viewers could access the scene and learn more about the storyline and the characters than they did in the series.
Mac McKean, an executive at AMC, released a statement about the AMC VR launch, explaining, “with the launch of AMC VR, we are pleased to bring shows like ‘The Walking Dead’ and ‘Into the Badlands’ to life in an immersive and experiential way. Viewers want to enter the worlds they watch on AMC, and this app brings them there.”
The AMC VR app will also include two “Into the Badlands” VR experiences, one of which is called “Virtual Reality Fight Camp”, and features series stars Ally Ioannides, Daniel Wu, and Aramis Knight in a choreographed fight teaching you martial arts moves.
You can access AMC’s new virtual reality app on iOS, Android, Gear VR and Google Daydream to check it out for yourself.
