Sony developed a game with the United States Airforce for players to simulate a HALO jump out of a C-130 aircraft

Sony worked with the United States Air Force to create a virtual reality game in which the player launches from a C-130 aircraft to conduct a ‘High Altitude, Low Opening’ (HALO) jump. The game is called Air Force Special Ops: Nightfall. During the nighttime HALO jump, a player controls the speed and direction of the parachute, attempting to fly through gates and identify enemy targets throughout the fall. Upon landing, players continue the game with a combat mission.

The game is available for free from the PlayStation store; however, a PlayStation VR headset is required to play.
