Australia’s Splendour Festival Turns To VR In 2021

Published

on

With the global pandemic still hindering live concerts, Australia’s Splendour festival is turning to VR for this year’s iteration.

SplendourXR, as the event is called, is happening on July 24 and 25 on the Sansar platform and features a full recreation of the traditional Byron Bay venue. That means you’ll be able to visit the virtualized event with a PC VR headset or just normally on a browser or device of your choice. Khalid and The Killers are headlining the event – but what does that actually mean?

A spokesperson for the show told us artists would feature in different ways during the show. Each will have pre-recorded their set specifically for the festival, but some will be appearing on screens and others using “cutting edge technology”. We haven’t seen any of the show for ourselves so just bear that in mind. Appearing on Sansar should mean the festival runs smoothly from a social perspective, but we’re yet to see a live music performance that really captures the in-person experience. That doesn’t mean they’re without merit, though.

Also on the bill for this year are CHVRCHES, Band of Horses and Denzel Curry. You can see the full line-up on the official website. In addition to music, the festival says it will feature several other experiences in social VR, like a virtual yoga session (maybe don’t wear your headset for that one).

Tickets to Splendour XR start at early bird pricing of $19.99 for a single-day ticket and $34.99 for a weekend ticket. That lasts until June 10, and tiers keep increasing in price as the event moves closer.

Waltz of the Wizard’s Natural Magic Update Confirmed for July

Published

on

Virtual reality (VR) developer Aldin has been teasing its next big update for Waltz of the Wizard since 2020. Called “Natural Magic” its set to feature new locations as well a reworked spell casting system to make it feel, well…more natural. Today, as part of a slew of VR announcements to kick off the Electronic Entertainment Expo (E3) 2021 this week the studio has confirmed the update will arrive next month.

Previous updates like the “Telepath” movement system added incremental improvements, whereas Natural Magic will be Aldin’s largest expansion to date. Starting off in a peaceful courtyard sandbox where players can practice and play with the new magic system, they’ll find intuitive controls to pick up distant objects or unleash devastating attacks. This is useful as the other area is the Fortress, a sprawling location home to the Observers, interdimensional beings that harness magic to control time and space.

These “Observers” are the bad guys, of course, and to get to them players will encounter a variety of enemies to wield their magic against. The Fortress also houses hidden artefacts which might be useful. It’s also the first location the developer has built that is procedurally generated, so each run-through will be slightly different.

Waltz of the Wizard: Natural Magic will have plenty of other interesting features for hours of entertainment, including mic input which turns a players voice into magical soundwaves to attack foes, enemies with detachable bodyparts and believable defensive reactions, and user health shown by their fingers turning skeletal.

Waltz of the Wizard: Natural Magic is set to launch on 6th July 2021 as a free update for existing owners of the videogame. There is a slight caveat in the fact that the update will be for SteamVR and Oculus headsets but not for PlayStation VR. Aldin’s CEO Hrafn Thorisson previously said in November 2020 that future updates for the headset were on hold due to the lack of info regarding a PlayStation VR 2 (at the time).

For further updates on Waltz of the Wizard: Natural Magic, keep reading VRFocus.
