The Black Eyed Peas recently unveiled a brand new virtual reality experience, in conjunction with Oculus, for its Marvel zombie-themed graphic novel, Masters of the Sun.

The title says it all as this is not a game, but an experience. You will be able to engage with your augmented reality environment, but you will not play it, like you would a video game. The project was revealed at Sundance Film Festival and will link up on the Oculus Gear VR headset.

The graphic novel was released in July of 2017 by Marvel. It’s a futuristic zombie-apocalypse thriller that ‘mixes L.A. gang culture, B-boy-ism and Egyptology’. The story tells a heroic tale of a hip-hop group, led by Zulu-X, from East L.A., which must battle an ancient alien god that was sent to Earth to continue a ‘Black Curse’ of turning drug dealers and gangsters into zombies. The book is meant to deliver a ‘powerful social allegory in the form of a new movement’.
