Red Bull Media House has launched its own virtual reality platform, and it requires a strong stomach. With a focus on extreme sports, it attempts to replicate some of the most exhilarating outdoor experiences for armchair fans, including cliff diving, skiing, helicopter aerobatics and urban exploration. You can access all of the above at Red Bull VR. It’s available on desktops, tablets and smartphones, but you’ll undoubtedly get the best experience by slotting your handset into a VR headset, such as Google’s Cardboard. Before you do it’s worth sampling a selection of slightly less extreme VR experiences, which you can easily track down through the 360-degree filter on YouTube.
The technology is known to induce nauseous feelings in some users, and Red Bull’s ‘extreme’ approach is unlikely to agree with everyone. The company has promised to keep updating its VR portfolio with new sport, travel and music 360-degree content.

You’ll Be Able To Play PUBG’s New Map ‘Codename: Savage’ Soon
PUBG Corp. has just announced another round of testing for their new, smaller island map soon. This round of testing will be live from this Thursday, May 10 at 10 PM to Monday May 14 at 7am. This new map is quite smaller than the current maps of Erangel and Miramar. The island map is based on southeast Asian terrain, with plenty of hiding spaces, ensuring a unique and exciting battle royale experience.
In particular, it will feature landscape, foliage, and more inspired by the PUBG Team’s trip to Thailand and the Philippines. The Steam update also revealed the official name for the new map: Sanhok. With testing coming soon and a release this summer, I can’t wait to give Sanhok a shot. I’ll be sure to test out this radical new map and see if it shakes up the gameplay in the ways PUBG Corp. hopes it will.
‘PUBG’s’ Codename: Savage Map Has a New Name – Variety
Developer PUBG Corp. revealed the map, codenamed Savage, earlier this year. It’s inspired by a wide variety of islands across southeast Asia, including some in Thailand and the Philippines. Members of the PUBG art team visited them earlier this year. It was the first time they scouted out a location specifically for the game’s development.
It will allow players to vote for which map they want to before the start of a match. It’s a feature many players have asked for since the launch of the game’s second map, Miramar. A fourth map based in Russia is in production as well. PUBG Corp. will begin testing Sanhok on Thursday at 7 p.m.
PT. Everyone who owns a copy of the game will be able to try it out.
