What is the Nissan Rogue Star Wars virtual reality experience?

We told you back in December about the awesome new 2017 Nissan Rogue: Rogue One Star Wars Limited Edition model, which was created in conjunction with the latest film in the “Star Wars” franchise, “Rogue One: A Star Wars Story.” That partnership continues with the release of a cool new virtual reality experience timed with the release of the film on home entertainment platforms. What is the Nissan Rogue Star Wars virtual reality experience? Read on for the details, including where you can find it!

Check out the Nissan Star Wars display from the 2017 Chicago Auto Show!

Details about Battle Test: A Nissan 360-Degree Virtual Reality Experience

Nissan has surprised us with another collaboration with Lucasfilm Ltd. by bringing us “Battle Test: A Nissan 360-Degree Virtual Reality Experience.” The special edition of the Rogue was released when the film hit theaters, and a fun television commercial promoted the connection between the brands. This immersive virtual reality experience was filmed at the same time as the commercial, but this time people won’t just be passively watching the action unfold on their couches!

“With this experience, we’re putting fans right in the middle of the action. One of the many goals we set out to accomplish through this wildly successful collaboration was to engage current and potential customers, and we’ve done that through a variety of opportunities including television commercials, auto shows and in dealerships.”

– Jeremy Tucker, vice president, Marketing Communications & Media, Nissan North America, Inc.

With this VR experience, fans are placed in the center of a simulated battlefield from “Rogue One: A Star Wars Story,” and they’ll get to experience the optional suite of Nissan Intelligent Safety Shield Technologies available inside the 2017 Rogue. Such features include Forward Emergency Braking with Pedestrian Detection, Blind Spot Warning, and Around View Monitor with Moving Object Detection.

“Battle Test: A Nissan 360-Degree Virtual Reality Experience” is now available on Oculus, Steam, Samsung VR, Discovery VR, Jaunt, Daydream, and Littlstar. It is also available on the Nissan Facebook and YouTube pages.

Fans of the Rogue (and of “Star Wars,” of course) will experience cinema-quality visual effects from Industrial Light & Magic, as well as custom sound design from Skywalker Sound. Have fun!
