coming to the Oculus virtual reality platform! Immerse yourself in the
fun and excitement of Deer Hunter within a 360-degree virtual reality
environment. Experience the sights and sounds of walking through the
lush forests of the Pacific Northwest as ducks fly overhead, then travel
to the dusty plains of the Central African Savannah as you hunt the
world’s most exotic animals! Look around the entire landscape and seek
out your prey, but watch out for attacking predators including bears,
wolves, and cheetahs! Enjoy virtually endless customization of your
weapons as you upgrade magazines, scopes, stocks, barrels and more.
