VRcade PowerPlay “Sport of the Future” Now Available in New 2-6 Player Arena Formats

Athletic, Match Play eSport Offers Range of Virtual Arena Sizes
Suitable for All Location-Based Entertainment Locations

September 5, 2018 – Redmond, WA – VRstudios®, the leading provider of commercial, large-scale, free-roaming, multiplayer virtual reality (VR) solutions for Location-Based Entertainment (LBE) businesses, announced today additional configurations of its VRcade® PowerPlay™ eSports product brand. Following the release of its flagship VRcade Arena for 8 players, PowerPlay is now available for smaller arenas supporting match play between 2-6 players. It is available as a turn-key solution and a new attraction for existing OptiTrack-based arenas.

PowerPlay is powered by AMP™, the VRcade Attraction Management Platform, which centralizes integration of system technologies, attraction content, operations, performance analytics, and remote support. AMP is being utilized to deploy and operate hundreds of VR attractions around the globe. Together, VRcade PowerPlay and AMP create an eSport solution for LBE operators to quickly add “Sport of the Future” VR attractions to their business.

“With multiple configurations of PowerPlay, we are bringing the next generation of eSports to all LBE venues,” said Chanel Summers, VRstudios’ Vice President of Creative Development. “No matter the size of your facility’s footprint, LBE operators and businesses can offer this highly physical, engaging, and unique game.”

These new configurations showcase all the unique features and capabilities of VRcade PowerPlay including:

  • An intensely athletic, free-roaming team sport.
  • eAthletes move naturally as if they were on a real-world playing field, including running, ducking, and jumping to beat the competition.
  • Highly replayable competitive matches.
  • Exciting spectator engagement through live action and streamed in-game broadcasts.
  • Customizable for brands, themes, and big IP assets.
  • Requires no special facility, additional physical infrastructure or props.

Each arena size provides a different PowerPlay eSport experience, as various configurations encourage different team strategies and maneuvers, pace of play, and physical movement. VRstudios offers full turn-key solutions and support for upgrading existing OptiTrack systems.

VRcade PowerPlay is available now and can be ordered directly from VRstudios. Requests for product information, demonstration or purchasing should be directed to John Walthall, Vice President, Business Development.   john.walthall@vrstudios.com
