Here’s more information from Solfar Studios:

Hailed by critics for its stunningly immersive content, Everest VR invites users to explore the breathtaking landscape of Mt. Everest through a multitude of vantage points and first-person experiences. Following momentous launches on HTC Vive and Oculus Rift, Everest VR is making its way to PlayStation VR and can be downloaded now from the PlayStation Store for $14.99.

“When we set out to develop Everest VR, our mission was to traverse a new frontier for virtual reality,” said Kjartan Pierre Emilsson, co-founder and CEO of Sólfar Studios. “We wanted to push the boundaries of what VR technology is capable of doing and create an immersive experience so realistic that it evokes an emotional response. Since its initial release for HTC Vive last year, we have continued to expand upon Everest VR with exciting new content. We’re thrilled to be able to have PlayStation VR users summit Mt. Everest in VR, starting today.”

Everest VR guides adventurers through a sequence of first-person experiences while ascending Mt. Everest. The journey includes notable milestones and interactive events including Base Camp, the Khumbu Icefall, Hillary Step, Lhotse Face, and the ascent to the Summit. PlayStation VR users can choose to experience Everest VR with either the PlayStation Move motion controllers or the DualShock 4.
