Users take on the role of Lance, pilot of the Blue Lion from Dreamworks Voltron Legendary Defender. Digital Domain describes to story of the first episode:
When Lance discovers the remains of a lost alien race deep within enemy space, he releases an unstoppable force that threatens to corrupt the Paladins' control over both their Lions and Voltron. Jumping into the heart of the adventure, you must overcome the corrupt force and relentless threat of Zarkon as you struggle to solve the ancient mystery and fight your way to victory.
Digital Domain is developing the experience in collaboration with Universal Brand Development. The voice actors from the original show are also voicing the characters in the experience.
