Experience what it feels like to climb Mount Everest in a series of first person challenges as you strive to reach the top of the world. Incomparable visual fidelity combine with player agency in a VR journey that feels both real and emotionally stunning.

Step into a first-person, photo-realistic experience like no other, as you join an expedition to reach the summit of Mount Everest. Developed by VR studio Sólfar in partnership with RVX – the Nordics’ leading visual effects and animation house – EVEREST VR is designed from the ground up for virtual reality.

Key Features:
Experience Everest in 5 iconic scenes. Prepare for your expedition at Basecamp, traverse the terrifying Khumbu Icefalls, overnight at Camp 4, ascend the perilous Hillary Step, and finally conquer the summit of Everest. 

After completing your first summit attempt, unlock God Mode to reach a unique vantage point of the Himalayas only possible in VR. Towering over the mountain range, this is a stunning VR diorama. 

EVEREST VR is a powerful first introduction to VR, designed not as a conventional game but as an accessible experience that focuses on the strengths of VR to transport you to an impossible real world location. 

Powered by Unreal Engine, EVEREST VR pushes the envelope of real-time graphics to deliver AAA visual fidelity that is unparalleled in virtual reality applications. 

Optimized for the HTC Vive, EVEREST VR scales from a uniquely satisfying and comfortable standing experience to one that takes full advantage of large room-scale Play Areas.

What's New

In this update, you´ll find the first expansion to God Mode. Originally a still diorama scene of Mount Everest and surrounding peaks, we have now added the first feature update to this mode:

Zoom In & Out to fully explore iconic points of interest. Using the trigger buttons on your Vive controllers, now you can zoom in and out of multiple scales as you view and traverse the map. From a near view scale of 1:50 meters, up to 1:1500 meter scale, this mode gives you a fantastic and varied perspective on one of Earth´s most iconic peaks, not to mention vistas that no human will ever experience in real life! Look out for the little people (aka climbers), if you crouch down in 1:50 scale they´ll come into focus.

Teleport along the historic climbing route used by Edmund Hillary and Tenzing Norgay in their 1953 expedition, the first successful attempt on Everest summit. On the Tibetan side of Everest, follow the climbing route along the North Ridge, used by the first Chinese expedition to climb the North Face and reach Everest summit in 1960.
