Lanesborough, MA, June 29th 2020: Indie developer and publisher Vintage Digital Revival is inviting patrons of all ages to an unforgettable journey aboard the Britannic, the sister ship of the infamous Titanic. Britannic: Patroness of the Mediterranean is a stunning recreation of the ship on STEAM™ offering the ability to explore the ship and discover details about its story, architecture and contributions to the First World War.




The Britannic has a fascinating story. She was the third ship in the Olympic Class trio, who, like her older sister ship, Titanic, was cheated of a promising career. Until now, no-one has seen her in this state since she sailed the Mediterranean. In this wonderful virtual museum and tour of the famous ship, you are courtly granted exclusive access to her rich story and architecture. Fans of ocean liners are in for a real treat as gems of historical nuggets surface. Britannic was taken over by the British government partway through construction and was used as a floating hospital during the First World War. Having never carried a paying passenger, she struck a mine near Greece and sank with a loss of 30 souls.


Britannic can now be explored in authentic onboard environments in a wondrous VR and non-VR version, depicting her as both the Hospital Ship she was and the Ocean Liner she was intended to be. Produced using Unreal® technology you can experience key areas of the fantastic vessel and witness a real-time sinking animation, as well. See if you can escape the ship before she sinks!?! You can roam the decks or use a free-for-all camera to fly around enjoying the rich details. Emphasis has been on historical accuracy and the title has been produced by a talented team of historians in a collaboration with wreck divers, archivists, and other experts to ensure history is brought to life in the most impressive way possible.



  • Fly-around camera mode
  • A thoroughly analyzed, playable real-time sinking mode
  • A complete explorable exterior
  • A unique history essay written by Britannic historian and wreck owner Simon Mills
  • VR-Support
  • Xbox® controller compatibility
  • Historical tidbits galore!
  • Several historically accurate interior spaces in both “Hospital Ship” and “Ocean Liner” states
