Step into the games with new VR videos

YouTube’s become a global destination for people who love watching gaming videos. And we want to take gamers’ viewing experience a step further by exploring how VR videos can put them right at the center of the action. That’s why we partnered with gaming creators and publishers to experiment with the production of 360 and VR videos. What’s come out of those experiments, from “League of Legends” to “Minecraft,” was pretty exciting.

From Let’s Play to trailers, there’s a really wide range of gaming content on YouTube, and a lot of these different style videos are now also becoming available in VR. You can check out gameplay from global creators as well as gaming-themed live action videos celebrating games like “Call of Duty.”

Game publishers are also getting involved in VR gaming videos in a big way, from the immensely popular “Clash of Clans” 360-degree video by Supercell to documentaries uploaded by “World of Tanks” publisher Wargaming. Even eSports organizations are producing content for VR, uploading 360-degree content from top events like the “League of Legends” World Championship Finals.

But what if you just want to chill and watch some gaming-themed entertainment content? We got you covered with videos ranging from the classic “Red vs. Blue” series to Stampy’s “Wonder Quest.”


To give you a taste of gaming experience in VR, check out the playlist above for some of our favorite videos so far. It’s a good cross section of the kind of gaming videos we offer in VR, many of which can make you feel like you’re standing inside the game itself. You can watch these videos using the YouTube VR app available on Daydream or with Google Cardboard. If you don’t have a headset, don’t worry, you can still get the 360-degree video experience on your mobile phone or desktop.

Ryan Wyatt, Head of Gaming Content, recently watched “Clash of Clans: Hog Rider 360°.”
