Virtual reality Arcade The Void partners with Lucasfilm and ILMxLAB immersive entertainment wing of Industrial Light and Magic to develop a new list of experiences based on the properties of Disney and Marvel Studios, with the first Ralph Breaks VR ] debuting this fall.
The company describes its games as "hyperreal" experiences, in which players wear headphones, tactile vests and backpack computers to immerse themselves in the game world. FastCompany reports that the partnership will include five new games, the first of which is Ralph Breaks VR and that another game "based on an unrevealed Marvel movie" will be released next year . The company debuted Ghostbusters: Dimensions just before the film resumed by Paul Feig in theaters and released Star Wars: Secrets of the Empire last winter.
The ongoing partnership with Disney is not a surprise: the company invested in the launch of virtual reality last summer. The Utah-based company also announced plans to expand to nine additional cities and indicated that it is interested in expanding globally.
