Let’s imagine your experience in virtual reality

D-Day: imagine yourself in the shoes of a parachustist and jump on the marshes

By watching this film in virtual reality you find yourself among the soldiers in a C47 and you jump with them on the day of the landing.

It is still dark in the late night of June 5 to 6, 1944. You are seated among your brothers in arms in this deafening roaring plane. You are focused on the objective given by the command: recapture the marshes and the town of Carentan. Then it’s the signal. What do you feel ? Fear? Pride? Both ? No time to think about it, you have to jump.

The fall is interminable. Around you, they are hundreds to descend towards the ground, towards the enemy without being able to direct the parachute. Where will you fall? Among the Germans? In the cold waters of the Taute? On the steeple of a church?

A virtual combat experience to touch the real.

After you are equipped, you enter the arena: The scene takes place in France during the summer of 1944, your section has received the order to defend this position at all costs, but the task is tough and the enemy is everywhere. Many of them have fallen around you and you are left alone, protected by bags of sand which seem ridiculous to you. The Germans are dozens and shoot at all costs, they are on foot, in tanks, in planes… to defend you and save the city, you have a machine gun, a Colt 45, grenades and even ‘a bazooka but will it be enough? Will the promised air reinforcement be there? Your strategy and your courage will determine the outcome of the fight.

Choose the right scenario and the right weapons!

The soldiers had no choice, the scenario was written, but you have the choice between three situations and the choice of weapons. Do not be mistaken ! You will find yourself in difficult and sometimes stressful situations. Make sure you are in good physical and mental condition.

A virtual fight but a real emotion

Cette expérience de combat virtuel est intense. Très vite vous serez plongé au cœur du combat et oublierez où vous êtes. Vous allez vous retrouver dans des situations difficiles et parfois stressantes. Assurez-vous d’être en bonne condition physique.
