The Jigsaw VR advert experience, releasing earlier than the movie, will likely be within the type of a “Virtual Room” which is a brand new instrument Unity desires to make use of to showcase VR’s rising potential for promoting. Throughout the Digital Room, users will work together with objects, study in regards to the upcoming movie, after which have to determine how one can save themselves in a “truly visceral and entertaining experience” as so put by Lionsgate’s SVP of Digital Advertising and marketing David Edwards within the announcement’s press launch.
