Ubisoft has been more deeply involved in VR development than most AAA-caliber game studios. From their early work on titles like Werewolves Within, Eagle Flight, and Star Trek: Bridge Crew to their latest release with Space Junkies, and now a seemingly growing line of Assassin’s Creed-themed VR escape rooms, they seem extremely invested in the industry.
Last year we wrote about Escape the Lost Pyramid from Ubisoft and Blue Byte games and earlier this year we covered the announcement of Beyond Medusa’s Gate, a follow-up born from that same partnership. Today, Ubisoft officially announced that Beyond Medusa’s Gate is not just a limited release but is actually now available at over 100 location-based entertainment centers across the US and Europe.
As you can deduce from the topics, Escape the Lost Pyramid was a tie-in for Assassin’s Creed Origins while Beyond Medusa’s Gate is designed as a tie-in for last year’s excellent Assassin’s Creed Odyssey. In the VR escape room teams of two to four players show up together in person and don VR headsets to be transported to another world. In the game groups have an hour to find a way out of a coastal cave where the 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,” U 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.”
