Check Out Firewatch’s Lookout Tower up Close and Personal in VR

on October 22, 2016 9:46 AM

Campo Santo continues to allow people to explore their game Firewatch in new and interesting ways. This time they’ve taken advantage of the VR app Destinations to allow players to see the game in a whole new dimension.

Only the protagonist’s watchtower is available to poke around in with either the Oculus Rift or HTC Vive but it still sounds like a lot of fun. Firewatch contained a lot of small details that added a lot to an already engaging story so seeing these elements up close sounds fascinating. The devs even commented:

…while messing around in it the other day, I picked up and then dropped the twenty-sided-die in his desk drawer and it rolled underneath his chair. Then, because I was using the Vive, I had to get down on the actual floor and reach under there to get it.

The VR lookout experience is free alongside with the Destinations app. If you look around enough you might just find a slow moving creature waiting to be your pet!
