UBISOFT ANNOUNCES NEW LOCATION-BASED FAR CRY® VR: DIVE INTO INSANITY
Location-Based VR Adventure Launching in 2021 at Zero Latency VR Venues Worldwide
PARIS, September 10, 2020 — Today, Ubisoft announced Far Cry® VR: Dive into Insanity, a new location-based experience developed in partnership with Zero Latency VR. The game will take a group of up to eight players back to the Rook Islands, the setting of Far Cry® 3. Captured by Vaas and his henchmen, players will explore the island and fight for survival together. The game will launch in 2021 exclusively at Zero Latency VR locations, which include more than 45 venues in 22 countries.
Zero Latency VR’s unique setup provides players with props and plenty of space to move, allowing them to become immersed in the adventure. Far Cry® VR: Dive into Insanity’s mechanics are simple and intuitive, giving players the freedom to discover the vast, colorful world of the game. Collaboration and teamwork will be key for players to find their way through the deranged warlord’s jungle gauntlet.
By partnering with Zero Latency VR, Ubisoft is continuing to reinforce its position in the location-based VR market. Ubisoft’s entry into the multiplayer free-roaming VR space builds on the success of its experiences like Notre-Dame VR, as well as its VR escape games and rides, to offer players a new way to experience Ubisoft’s beloved worlds.
“When it comes to creating dynamic, memorable gaming experiences, free-roam location-based VR expands the possibilities. Far Cry® VR: Dive into Insanity will offer players around the world the opportunity to immerse themselves in the rich setting of Far Cry® 3 and take on its iconic villain,” said Deborah Papiernik, VP New Business, Ubisoft.
“We are excited to be working with Ubisoft to bring the world of Far Cry® 3 to VR,” said Tim Ruse, CEO, Zero Latency VR. “It’s going to be a special experience for fans to return to Rook Island in this incredibly immersive new way.”
