HD images from Mars 2030 VR experience

Mars 2030 VR is the latest education-focused virtual reality simulation set on Mars. It has been launched for the HTC Vive and Oculus Rift headsets, soon to come to PlayStation VR, and has been developed in partnership with NASA. MARS 2030 centers on open world exploration, covering ~40 square kilometers of the Mawrth Vallis region, accurately mapped and modeled using MRO HiRISE satellite data. Taking on the role of an astronaut, players traverse Mars and collect geological samples that uncover the planet’s past.

Here are some HD quality images from the game (open link in new tab to view in full resolution):
