A graphic novel from Will.i.am and the Black Eyed Peas is being adapted for the Gear VR to release in 2018.
The sci-fi story from Will.i.am will feature the voice talent of performers such as Queen Latifah, Rakim, Ice T and Jamie Foxx, and in the trailer below you can hear Marvel comics’ Stan Lee narrating.
Master of the Sun appears to draw from Egypt mythology set against a backdrop of social commentary when “aliens attack, releasing a curse that turns drug dealers and gangbangers into zombies.” From the description:
Armed with a deep love of hip-hop culture, Zulu-X must work together with his crew to unlock the mysteries of an ancient order and save their city.
Given that the project is coming to Gear VR it would be surprising if it didn’t launch on Oculus Go as well, the $200 standalone headset on the way early in 2018. Software on Gear VR will be fully compatible with Oculus Go.
Masters of the Sun releases in January 2018.
