LONDON, UK, May 13th, 2019 – Today, Ubisoft announced that the VR Escape Room experience Beyond Medusa’s Gate is now available at more than 100 location-based entertainment centres across the US and Europe. Beyond Medusa’s Gate is an incredible, larger-than-life virtual reality adventure that is designed as a co-operative multiplayer VR experience. Players will be transported to the world of Ancient Greece where they must team up in order to solve a series of complex puzzles that include various activities, including interaction with ancient objects, climbing, shooting arrows, and more.

Developed by Ubisoft Blue Byte, Beyond Medusa’s Gate is the second experience available on the Ubisoft Escape Games platform and is set in the re-creation of Ancient Greece from Assassin’s Creed® Odyssey. Teams of two or four players will have 60 minutes to work together and find a way out of a vast Aegean coastal cave, where the legendary ship of the Argonauts is anchored. To successfully escape, players must use cooperative teamwork, problem-solving skills and precise timing to solve riddles and find their way out of this room-scale experience. As part of the immersive VR experience, players start the adventure by choosing their avatar among six diverse characters and can customize them with ancient Greek accessories.
