Ubisoft’s new Assassin’s Creed VR experience allows you to step inside the Animus for the first time ever.
Escape The Lost Pyramid is a new location-based VR escape room that’s set in the world of the popular gaming series (more specifically tying into last year’s Assassin’s Creed Origins). Up to four players can explore the Lost Pyramid of Nebka, entering a simulation that puts you in the shoes of several lost explorers. Across 60 minutes players must solve puzzles and use items like a bow and arrow in order to make their way out of the room.
You can check it out in the trailer below, though there’s no actual footage of the virtual game itself (apparently Ubisoft thought it was a better idea to show a man simply imitating firing a bow and arrow, which gives us flashbacks to Palmer Luckey’s Time Magazine cover).
This isn’t the first Assassin’s Creed VR experience we’ve tried; we also went hands-on with Temple of Anubis at E3 this year, which looks like a largely similar experience.
Currently Escape The Lost Pyramid is available in four locations across the globe, including two sites in the US, one in Germany and one in France. You can find out more about booking a slot at the game’s official website. Sadly there’s no word on a home release for the experience, though I wouldn’t hold my breath.
