VR Escape Room: Escape The Lost Pyramid, now available across the US and Europe
Location–Based VR Escape Room Experience Challenges Players to a Collaborative Team Adventure
SAN FRANCISCO, November 7, 2018 — Today, Ubisoft announced that the VR Escape Room Experience Escape the Lost Pyramid is now available in several locations across the US and Europe. Escape the Lost Pyramid is exclusively available at location-based entertainment venues and is designed for cooperative multiplayer VR experiences. All current and future locations can be found at ubisoftescapegames.com/escape-the-lost-pyramid. With the development and operation of this new experience, Ubisoft continues to strengthen its position in the location-based VR market.
Developed by Ubisoft Blue Byte, Escape the Lost Pyramid is the first experience available for the Ubisoft Escape Games platform and is set in the re–creation of Ancient Egypt from Assassin’s Creed® Origins. Two or four players team up and have 60 minutes to find a way out of the pyramid of Nebka. They will experience a larger-than-life adventure where they will encounter thrilling team challenges and puzzles while being immersed in the VR game world. The only way to succeed is for players to communicate and work together.
“We saw an opportunity to use our game design expertise to push the Escape Room experience beyond what’s physically possible, to offer players a highly immersive adventure for a once-in–a–lifetime collaborative experience,” said Cyril Voiron, executive producer for Ubisoft Escape Games. “Escape the Lost Pyramid is just the start. We are creating more co-op escape experiences for the Ubisoft Escape Games platform and are excited to let players experience how memorable state-of-the-art VR can be.”
The next experience is currently in development – for release in early 2019 – and will be set in the world of the recently released Assassin’s Creed® Odyssey.
