You’ve seen the movies and there are plenty of video games that let you play as a member of The Avengers, but none are as immersive as this new 360 degree simulator from Samsung.  Launched to coincide with ‘Age of Ultron,’ this simulator actually allows you, guided by Maria Hill herself, to step into Avengers Tower and defend it against an army of Ultron drones, as Black Widow, Captain America, Hawkeye, The Hulk, Iron Man or Thor and to team up with others to combat the robot army.

Among the teammates featured in the promotion are Green Bay Packers running back Eddie Lacy, professional surfer John John Florence, cyclist Fabian Cancellara and soccer star Lionel Messi.  And some girl who plays as Black Widow, because you know, two X chromosomes.

First, you can check out the promotional videos that give you an idea of what to expect:

Well, at least they show that a guy CAN play as Black Widow if they want.  And a wee lass can play as Hulk.  So all’s fair.

And now, using your Android phone or Google Chrome, you can experience a simulation of the 360 degree experience.  (It works best on a phone or tablet.):


Obviously, the point is to sell the Samsung Galaxy S6 and the Gear VR Headset, the tech you see the folks in the ads donning to really get the full experience.

So are you due for an upgrade soon?  If so, does the possibility to become one of the Avengers enough for you to consider the Galaxy 6?  And what about that headset?  Pretty nifty, huh?

Which Avenger would you like to play as the most?
