Ahead of Spider-Man: Homecoming hitting theaters next month, Sony Pictures Virtual Reality has announced that Spider-Man: Homecoming VR is coming to PlayStation VR, Oculus Rift, and HTC Vive on June 30 for free. You can see gameplay beginning at 0:55 of the above video.

Here’s the description:

For the first time, you can suit up as Spider-Man and see what it’s like to be the world’s favorite superhero. Learn the ins and outs of your brand new Stark Industries upgraded webshooters and master different web types as you race to complete fast-paced targeting trials – but you’ll have to learn quickly… The Vulture is on the loose and coming for you. Sling high above the city in a dramatic confrontation before pursuing Spidey’s deadliest enemy.

Based on the all-new 2017 film, the Spider-Man Homecoming VR Experience is a fun and thrilling first-person look inside the world of your friendly neighborhood Spider-Man.

Sony’s Jake Zim added, “Spider-Man is the most beloved superhero in the world, so we knew Spider-Man: Homecoming VR had to be something special. Fans can wear the suit, fire the new web shooters – THWIP! – and swing through the air in a faceoff with The Vulture. It’s every fan’s fantasy turned into virtual reality.”

You’ll be able to try the VR Experience at select theaters in the United States over the next few weeks.

Sony’s other Spider-Man game, Marvel’s Spider-Man from Insomniac Games, is scheduled to release in 2018 for PlayStation 4. After their big E3 gameplay reveal, Insomniac is already back at work shooting new scenes for the game.
