Typically at most conventions, the shows/films that are featured will have a panel, question and answer session, and possibly have autographs. Audience Network’s Mr. Mercedes time at this year’s San Diego Comic Con, will be quite the experience.

Those attending the con will be the first to play the virtual reality game called, “Mr. Mercedes: Lair Escape.” The game will not only tell the past events from the series, but what’s to come. The whole event is perfectly titled, “Mr. Mercedes Immersive Experience.”

In its entirety, the Experience will include, per AT&T’s press release:

  • Augmented Reality Adventure Game –Download the app to embark on an AR-driven investigation helping Detective Bill Hodges crack the case and claim a reward if you succeed.
  • Virtual Reality Escape Room Game – Be fully immersed in a virtual escape room inside Brady’s lair. Escape before time runs out or you’re trapped forever!
  • Recreating the Physical World of “Mr. Mercedes” – The show’s set designers are recreating Finders Keepers, Mercy General Hospital and Brady’s lair using actual props.
  • Bringing Brady to Life Through Projection Mapping – 3-D light projection will creepily bring Brady to life in his hospital bed. Is he in a coma or did you just see him move?
  • Lenticular Photo Experience – This photo op will transform the participant’s face into Brady’s along with a socially shareable GIF.
  • Private Screening Room – Media, VIP and lucky fans will get the chance to watch a sneak peek of season 2.

Pre-registration is currently available for the event. “Mr. Mercedes Immersive Experience” is set to occur at 643 G St, San Diego, CA 92101 from Thursday July 19th through Saturday July 21st from 10am-6pm PT daily.

In terms of the panel for Mr. Mercedes, more information will be announced shortly.

The second season of Mr. Mercedes is set to air on Wednesday August 22nd at 10pm ET/PT on AT&T Audience Network.
