We first reported on Disney Movies VR last month when we learned that Disney planned on providing streaming access to virtual reality content via trademark registrations.
Today, we have learned that the free app has gone live on Steam in the utilities section.
Available on Steam for Windows operating systems 7, 8 and 10 and compatible with HTC Vive virtual reality headsets, the app’s description reads as follows: ‘Transport yourself into the wonderful world of Disney from your very own living room with Disney Movies VR. This app is a fully-immersive experience where you visit themed worlds, including Disney, Marvel and Lucasfilm, and interact with some of your favorite characters in their natural environments. Choose from multiple scenes in Disney movies including The Jungle Book, Captain America and Star Wars and be a part of the action! Disney Movies VR is your ticket to full immersion into the many Disney experiences optimized for virtual reality. Brought to you by the imaginative minds at Disney. ‘
Although the Steam page notes support for Oculus Rift is also supported, the service’s official website notes support only for the HTC Vive and says other systems will be supported in the future.
Current content is a combination of new and previously released 360 degree videos for Disney Parks, Marvel, Jungle Book, Star Wars and more.
