VRstudios, a leading provider of globally acclaimed VR solutions for LocationBased Entertainment (LBE) is pleased to announce the release of the VRcade Arena system and Attraction Management Platform software. Designed for turnkey installation and operation, and leveraging patent pending technology, the VRcade Arena is a warehouse-scale virtual reality platform providing multiplayer capabilities that allows up to eight simultaneous users to interact with each other as they participate in a new generation of full-motion, immersive and competitive gaming experiences.
The VRcade Arena is built on VRstudios’ Attraction Management Platform™ (AMP). AMP integrates 1st and 3rd party hardware and software while providing a comprehensive support and operational environment for entertainment venue owners and operators. AMP enables easy installation and efficient operations including support of essential day-to-day functions required by the facilities’ technicians, operators, and managers. Using role-specific login access, AMP gives businesses and individuals the tools they need to easily operate their VR attraction, manage hardware, software, user profiles and content, gather important data and analytics and view valuable operational reports.
The VRcade Arena has been specifically designed for commercial entertainment destinations, such as theme & amusement parks, family entertainment centers, cinemas and casinos. AMP allows attraction owners and operators to increase their Return on Investment (ROI) through informed decisions about VR as a part of their business. Protecting their investment, AMP supports the integration of industry standards, innovative technologies and content as they become available.
“We are excited to release the VRcade Arena, delivering on an original vision of the company conceptualized over five years ago,” said Dave Ruddell, VRstudios’ cofounder and Chief Architect. “From our 40+ VRcade systems installed around the world, we have learned what it takes to build and manage an arena-class product that can push the limits and best practices of the growing LBE industry. The VRcade Arena enables an exciting new level of immersive out-of-home experiences for everyone, from casual VR enthusiasts to serious eSports competitors.”
The VRcade Arena content strategy includes new VRcade branded titles along with 3rd party titles developed through licensing and co-production agreements. Together with the highest quality industry creative partners, the company plans a robust catalog of gaming experiences for the VRcade Arena that will provide access to unparalleled, fully-immersive VR experiences. The system will ship with content specifically designed to leverage the unique features that can only be experienced in a location-based arena-scale system.
