Access to virtual reality is reserved for those with the money for fancy and expensive hardware, right? Wrong. MTN’s Beyond VR, a subscription service powered by South Africa’s best mobile network, offers access to VR experiences without need of fancy hardware.
All it takes is a web browser or a smartphone screen, with a cardboard VR headset or even full-on VR hardware being optional, and anyone can experience virtual reality. This is thanks to the magic of MTN’s superfast 5G network and a little something known as adaptive streaming which ensures that it’s always possible to have the experience you’re after.
Beyond VR offers both augmented reality (AR) and virtual reality (VR) outing to MTN’s customers but it doesn’t stop there. Also on the menu are a range of 360-degree video presentations that will put viewers into places and situations around the world they may never access in person. But it’s really all about the game. Or, rather, games.
Whether you’re a fan of puzzles or platformers, racing or shooters, MTN’s virtual reality platform has a game that’ll suit your tastes. From sedate to frenetic, there’s something to match everyone’s pace, and there are even multiplayer experiences to explore.
Play your way
These virtual offerings don’t rely on expensive hardware, opting instead to exploit MTN’s 5G network and similar technology to that powering your favourite streaming service to bring these experiences to as many South Africans as possible. If they’re on MTN’s network and have a smartphone, exploring space, fantasy lands, and other otherworldly locations is within reach.
That doesn’t leave folks with fancy gear out of the loop. It just includes everyone without it. Anyone who visits the Beyond VR site, whether it’s on a desktop web browser or a smartphone (yes, or a VR headset), can access the experiences inside. These innovative experiences will change the way you think of what’s possible while using a smartphone and MTN’s service is expanding all the time.
Get it on MTN Play
For just a minor daily, weekly, or monthly subscription fee, potential players can have a virtual world at their fingertips. The ability to stream these games means they can be experienced anywhere there’s a cellular signal – and with MTN, that’s the entire country.
So make the jump. Fall into something completely new and novel, no matter who you are. Experience seamless, latency-free virtual experiences from the comfort of wherever you happen to be holding your smartphone. Take your gaming experience beyond VR.
