|July 8, 2019
The Germans have lost the battle for control over the Atlantic. The once
feared Grey Wolves are on the run and the German WWII U-boat fleet is
suffering heavy losses. In 'Das Boot VR Demise' you are trained to command a
German World War II submarine on the mission to intercept and sink enemy
freighters to interrupt the supply line of the allied forces. This unique
interactive VR experience is based on the successful 2018 TV series 'Das
Boot' and the legendary original 'Das Boot' movie.
Will you be successful on the hunt and save your sailors and the U-boat
from sinking to the deep and unforgiving sea?
Immerse yourself as the captain and steer the fully interactive WWII
U-boat silently through hostile waters. Use the periscope to search for your
targets and enemy warships. Dive deeper and switch to silent running when
allied ships are closing in. Close the valves to avoid water breaking in and
keep a cool head when depth charges hit the hull. Relive the most intense
moment of the legendary 'Das Boot' and experience the tension of naval
warfare under the sea in this 8- 10 minute single-player experience.
From the Press Kit:
“Das Boot” VR on Hologate is the first ever installment of the iconic
anti-war story on current gaming platforms and will be based on the upcoming
same-named TV series directed by Andreas Prochaska and coproduced by Bavaria
Fiction, Sky Deutschland and Sonar Entertainment using motives from the
novels "Das Boot" and "Die Festung" written by Lothar-Günther Buchheim.
The groundbreaking multiplayer experience produced by remote control
productions (rcp) and developed by Aesir Interactive will launch later this
year on the leading location based VR system Hologate in parallel with the
new high end TV series “Das Boot”.
In the “Das Boot” VR experience on Hologate players are sent back to 1942 to
command a class VII type German WWII U-boat and complete a dangerous mission
based on historical events. In the North-Atlantic Sea, the crew is on the
silent hunt for a convoy of Allied freighters but instead encounters a
British destroyer. In a desperate diving maneuver the crew is trying to
escape but the fierce attack of the destroyer won’t let them get away. In
this immersive scenario the up to 4 players will have no other choice than
to work hand-in-hand under full pressure or to sink into the dark depths of
The Hologate system is perfectly suited to let players experience the
tension of naval warfare and the confinement under the sea in the most
immersive way possible. “We are intrigued that the first game experience of
“Das Boot” is coming to the innovative Hologate platform that really can
make players feel the pressure of warfare under water” says Hendrik Lesser,
CEO remote control productions. The system allows a cooperative multiplayer
setup for 1-4 players which is simply tailored for the 4 different roles the
“Das Boot” VR experience offers on the stations of the U-612 like periscope,
steering and torpedo room.
Das Boot VR will be released on Steam in a few months.
“Das Boot” has been licensed for games by Bavaria Fiction and has been
funded by the FFF in the Prototype production.
