Brace Yourself For This VR Journey Through Westeros In Minecraft

Winter has arrived on the Minecraft Game of Thrones-themed server, WesterosCraft, and one Virtuix employee braved virtual Westeros on-foot on the Omni treadmill. Virtuix Omni has released a demonstration of a developer using the Omni and the Oculus Rift virtual reality headset to traverse iconic locales from the show, including The Wall and Castle Black.

The WesterosCraft server is about 501 square miles in size, roughly the size of Los Angeles, according to the server's website. After fast-forwarding through the clip of the demonstrator climbing The Wall's steps, he looks over the edge of the other side and jump off, mimicking a falling motion inside the Omni.

For more on Omni, check out our hands-on impressions from this year's GDC and our list of the seven things we learned about virtual reality at GDC. You can also check out our coverage of Oculus and Sony's Project Morpheus from E3 2014, including a dialog between editors Kim Wallace and Jeff Marchiafava and a video chat featuring Kim and Mike Futter.
