Last year Ubisoft and location-based entertainment (LBE) company Zero Latency announced an exciting partnership that would see the Far Cry franchise brought into virtual reality (VR). Today, they’ve announced that Far Cry VR: Dive Into Insanity is now available at select Zero Latency locations worldwide.
Far Cry VR: Dive Into Insanity is a free-roaming, multiplayer shooter for up to eight people, taking them to Rook Islands the setting for Far Cry 3. With each session clocking it at around 30 minutes, players have to fight their way across the island, dealing with plenty of henchmen before confronting the main villain himself, Vaas.
Just like Zero Latency’s other VR titles, players will be able to freely explore the environments, dealing with enemies from all sides with their haptic guns, which can provide a realistic rifle or shotgun feel with pump-action mechanics.
“We’re always looking for new ways to provide our players with the very best entertainment the freeroam VR industry has to offer, and our new Far Cry VR: Dive into Insanity experience is exceptional,” said Tim Ruse, CEO of Zero Latency VR in a statement. “We 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, 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.
Far Cry VR: Dive Into Insanity is available at 33 of Zero Latency’s locations around the world (there are 45 locations worldwide) so you’ll need to check your local one to see if they have it available. The launch continues the LBE industry’s move towards a wider reopening as local pandemic restrictions begin to ease. For further updates, keep reading VRFocus.
