Marvel fans will soon be able to step inside the MCU and Multiverse. On Wednesday, Marvel Studios and ILM Immersive announced What If…? – An Immersive Story, an hourlong interactive experience coming soon via app for the Apple Vision Pro

The first interactive Disney+ Original story will be connected to What If…?, Marvel’s animated series that explores alternate timelines in the Multiverse. In What If…? – An Immersive Story, fans become the heroes in this journey that will cross into new realities. Per Marvel.com’s description, app users will “come face-to-face with Multiversal variants of their favorite characters, learn the mystic arts, and be tasked with harnessing the power of the Infinity Stones.”

“As a kid, my favorite stories were about worlds beyond my own, advanced technologies, and heroes traveling across space and time. What If…? – An Immersive Story is the next evolution in how we tell our stories, where fans across generations can experience them and live out the adventure alongside their favorite heroes,” Dave Bushore, director and executive producer, said. “This experience kicks the door open to the Marvel Universe, and it’s a glimpse of what I’ve been waiting for my whole life.”

Step inside the Multiverse like never before…
