Viewers can enter the OASIS in 4K later this year.

In an early announcement to retailers, Warner Bros. is prepping Ready Player One for 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray and Blu-ray. In addition, a 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray Best Buy Exclusive SteelBook and a Blu-ray Best Buy Exclusive SteelBook will also be available. An exact release date has not been announced yet, but the discs are now available for pre-order.

Meanwhile, a Blu-ray 3D version was also previously listed on Best Buy but has since been removed so it's not yet clear whether the studio will end up offering one.

The film is set in 2045, with the world on the brink of chaos and collapse. But the people have found salvation in the OASIS, an expansive virtual reality universe created by the brilliant and eccentric James Halliday (Mark Rylance). When Halliday dies, he leaves his immense fortune to the first person to find a digital Easter egg he has hidden somewhere in the OASIS, sparking a contest that grips the entire world. When an unlikely young hero named Wade Watts (Tye Sheridan) decides to join the contest, he is hurled into a breakneck, reality-bending treasure hunt through a fantastical universe of mystery, discovery and danger.

Exact specs and supplements have not been detailed yet, but the Blu-ray will feature 1080p video and the Ultra HD Blu-ray will feature 2160p video.

Suggested list price for the Ultra HD Blu-ray is $44.99. Suggested list price for the Blu-ray is $35.99.
