A new virtual reality game lets you step inside the Harry Potter universe and meet Newt Scamander's collection of fantastic beasts.

I've been a bit of a VR skeptical for a long time. I can't think of anything worse that putting on a virtual reality helmet and standing in the middle of my living room feeling weirdly disconnected from my surroundings just to play a game.

But the new VR game set in the Harry Potter universe makes me really want to give it a try. The game, which is available now, is based on the 2016 'Fantastic Beasts And Where To Find Them'.

The game promises to let players see the wizarding world like never before and based on the teaser video posted online this week, looks amazing.

The VR experiences lets players step through Newt Scamander's suitcase and explore his magical world in a breathtaking cinematic interactive experience. You'll get to meet and interact with six beasts from the movie, practice spells, and immerse yourself in the magic like never before.

'Fantastic Beasts And Where To Find Them VR Experience' is available on Vive, Daydream, and Oculus. It also available on Samsung Gear VR, however the physical wand controlled is not available on this platform. Sadly, there's no news on a Playstation VR version of the game.
