If you’ve ever wanted to be an actor and an astronaut, your time has come. The Martian VR Experience immerses the user in the 2015 movie, “The Martian.” The player takes on Matt Damon’s role of astronaut Mark Watney, performing various tasks on Mars. Viewers can walk through dust storms on the Red Planet and even drive a rover. The VR experience is being released this week for HTC Vive and PlayStation VR. The Martian VR Experience seems to replicate everything except Matt Damon’s salary.
