Something exciting is coming to Austin, Texas for the 2015 SXSW Festval, especiallly for the Divergent series fans out there, as Samsung and Lionsgate have teamed up to create and bring a new Oculus virtual reality experience based on the upcoming sequel to the Divergent series, Insurgent. This will provide fans and attendees a unique experience into the world of the Divergent series.

Some of you may have been lucky and already had the chance to try out the ‘Shatter Reality’ VR experience as it has been touring Ameica since the first stop in New York last month. However the 2015 SXSW Festival will be the only stop in Texas, so make sure you stop by to try it out while you still have the chance to. If you miss it your last chance will be when they tour San Francisco from 21st to 22nd March, 2015.
