An impressive new video from YouTube channel Corridor Digital explores what would happen if a virtual reality headset could transport you into a real-life version of Grand Theft Auto–and it does this with Grand Theft Auto V‘s Trevor.
Steven Ogg, the actor who played Trevor in the game, guides the headset’s user through a sort of tutorial. This happens on the streets of Los Angeles, where many of the sights that are the norm in GTA V–jets crashing into things, cars smashing into each other, and so on–are unfolding. Before watching, do note that the video is not safe for work–this version of Trevor is as vulgar as his in-game counterpart.
The visuals may not be at the level of quality in a Hollywood movie, but it is still a really well-realized production. That’s to be expected from the team behind the Battlefield Rush video you may have seen recently.
An accompanying making-of video (below) shows how this was all put together in just a week’s time. It was written in two days, locations were scouted in two days, and filming then took place in about a day and a half.
