National Geographic: Explore VR is a VR exploration game in which the player explores exotic locations. The base game features a single location to explore: Antarctica. Through three different activities (kayaking, ice climbing and sheltering during a storm) the player is tasked with finding a lost penguin colony. During the activity the player can take photographs of the environment and animal encounters. Multiple photo challenges are included which reward trophies in the lodge which serves as a main menu. All the photos in the lodge can also be viewed and put on the wall or shared with Facebook. Further locations are added through DLC.
