Although its production is today in decline compared to the hatching it experienced between 2015 and 2018, the analysis of some of the most recent immersive journalistic features allows us to notice that the development of technology has contributed to overcome several of the limitations we found in the first productions. In this sense, the use of advanced techniques such as photogrammetry achieves a higher level of viewer participation by allowing them to move through space, offer very realistic images, recreate shocking moments or remote places and achieve a closer approach to the protagonists and witnesses of each story. These possibilities are described in this text. In the final part, we offer an updated list of best practices to promote the viewer's experience within the immersive journalistic story.
