Wallace and Gromit's new VR adventure, The Grand Getaway, launches on Meta Quest today (7th December 2023), and includes a hilarious Mixed Reality experience called Jamtastic!
'The Grand Getaway' invites fans to step directly into the world of Wallace and Gromit to enjoy a brand new story and play an active role in the adventure.
The story begins as holidays are on the horizon for the duo...bringing the opportunity to test out their latest contraption, 'Auto-Caddy'. But Wallace has got his dates mixed up and it turns out that they need to be on the other side of the country in just half an hour! This calls for the duo to dust down their faithful Rocket, but a mishap with the controls sends Wallace, Gromit and Auto-Caddy hurtling off course...the scene is set for this to become a holiday to remember!
The action plays out on the Meta Quest all-in-one headset*, and the project is a co-production between Aardman, Atlas V, No Ghost and Albyon. The Grand Getaway is a fully self-contained, single player game, and all interactions are with the characters of the storyworld only. Ben Whitehead, who has been voicing Wallace since Peter Sallis' retirement, plays the part of Wallace.
