meetspaceVR are today launching a new title by Zero Latency VR and Ubisoft. Far Cry® VR: Dive into Insanity, a free-roaming virtual reality experience in London (Wembley), Birmingham and soon to follow Nottingham. Prepare to come face-to-face with Vaas as you are transported into the world of Far Cry® 3. Fight your way across Rook Islands’ vast environments as you and your group dive deeper and deeper into the jungle. You’re about to discover the definition of insanity.
 

“We’re always looking for new ways to provide our players with the very best entertainment the free-roam VR industry has to offer, and Zero Latency’s new Far Cry® VR: Dive into Insanity experience is exceptional,” said John Lilley, CEO of meetspaceVR.
 

“Zero Latency worked closely with Ubisoft to make sure the action-packed world of Far Cry would  feel authentic for fans and entice new players as well.”
 

“Bolstered by Zero Latency’s one-of-a-kind concept, arena scale free-roaming VR is an excellent way for gamers and non-gamers alike to explore the vivid world of Far Cry. We’re thrilled to offer a game that brings people together to create memorable moments” said Deborah Papiernik, VP of New  Business at Ubisoft.

 

Zero Latency VR’s unique experience provides up to eight players with props and plenty of space to move, allowing them to become immersed in the tropical paradise of Rook Islands before being kidnapped by Vaas and his army of henchmen. Far Cry® VR: Dive into Insanity’s mechanics are simple and intuitive, giving players the freedom to discover the vast, colourful world of the game.  Collaboration and teamwork will be key for players to find their way through the deranged warlord’s jungle gauntlet and get off the island together.

 

“There is massive pent-up demand from both our current and new customers alike. I think we have all suffered from a little cabin fever! We are already getting back to previous levels of bookings and cannot wait for the summer holidays to kick off in earnest. For those that are “staycationing” we want to make it one to remember”. Said John Lilley, CEO meetspaceVR.
