HTC Vive Will ‘Unveil Game-Changing VR Headsets’ At ViveCon

Published

The website for HTC’s upcoming ViveCon event claims the company will reveal “game-changing VR headsets” during next month’s show.

Announced earlier in April, ViveCon is a free two-day event running on May 11th and 12th. The company already promised news for the show, and a recent tease suggested we’ll see a new headset revealed too. Over on the event’s official website (thanks to Nikolai Dragnes for the tip), the company asks viewers to “Take a front-row seat at the VR event of the year as HTC VIVE unveils game-changing VR headsets, software, and platforms to take your experience to another level.”

New VR Headsets Coming At ViveCon

That confirms we’ll be seeing a new VR headset during next month’s show, but it also leaves it open for more than one reveal too. Earlier this year we reported that HTC is planning to release another standalone VR headset in 2021. That’s something that’s likely to be aimed at enterprise customers if it releases in western markets.

If HTC is planning to talk about another device, could it be the Project Proton concept headset it first spoke about last year? The ultra-light device was introduced with several possible form factors, such as connecting to external devices via 5G or plugging into a smartphone. The company did predict to UploadVR that 2021 would see the rise of the all-in-two headset.

What do you think HTC will reveal at ViveCon? Are you going to be watching the show? Let us know in the comments below!

Ultimate Fishing Simulator 2 VR Casts off in 2022

Avatar

Published

There are a couple of good virtual reality (VR) fishing videogames out there one of which is Ultimate Games’ Ultimate Fishing Simulator VR. If you’re a fan of digitally hooking a few fish then good news, the studio has announced that a sequel is on the way, with the official launch scheduled for next year.

Being developed by Polish studio MasterCode, Ultimate Fishing Simulator 2 VR promises more highly detailed, realistic fishing the series is known for. There will be a diverse range of fisheries all based on real-world locations like American Jackson National Park – Snake River, as seen in these screenshots. Locations will feature different seasons and there will be new dynamic water effects to further immerse players in the experience.

Being a fishing simulator the videogame will include various techniques such as spinning, float, ground and fly fishing, sea, ice and beach fishing. Of course, there will be a varied selection of fish to catch but none have been mentioned just yet. The fish will also come with new AI systems which should make them harder to tempt onto the hook.

“Our goal is to set new standards when it comes to fishing simulators. Work on Ultimate Fishing Simulator 2 has already suffered some delays, which is simply due to the fact that we want to deliver the game in the highest possible quality. The new instalment will significantly differ from the first one,” said Rafał Jelonek, COO at Ultimate Games in a statement. “We are preparing many different improvements and completely new elements. In a nutshell – Ultimate Fishing Simulator 2 includes, among others, vastly improved graphics, additional third-person perspective mode (TPP), as well as new dynamic water and fish AI systems.”

“When creating Ultimate Fishing Simulator 2 we did not concentrate solely on avid fishing enthusiasts. We are working on two game modes – one of them will be simplified and aimed at new players, including those who have not had any contact with fishing before,” Jelonek adds. Additionally, instead of solo fishing players can also enjoy online PvP and co-op multiplayer fishing.

Ultimate Fishing Simulator 2 VR is scheduled to debut as a Steam Early Access title towards the end of 2021, with the official launch taking place across all platforms in 2022. It’ll support headsets including Oculus Rift, HTC Vive, Valve Index and Windows Mixed Reality. A non-VR, demo version of Ultimate Fishing Simulator 2 is available now via Steam if you want to take an early look. For further updates, keep reading VRFocus.

Rovio and Burger King Deliver an Angry Birds WebAR Experience

Avatar

Published

on

Rovio Entertainment has managed to bring its Angry Birds franchise to most mediums, with a couple of virtual reality (VR) videogames as well as augmented reality (AR) titles under its belt. In its latest venture into immersive gaming, the company has teamed up with Burger King and AR specialist Zappar to offer an Angry Birds WebAR experience through promotional packaging.

Burger King x Angry Birds

Utilising Zappar’s WebAR tech, Burger King diners can access the Angry Birds experience by scanning QR codes on various items and meals. These range from King JR kids meals and other box packaging to plush toy tags and even signage at select Burger King locations.

Once the Angry Birds WebAR title starts players will see three eggs appear. Waves of Hatchlings will then try and steal them with players having to defend the eggs by tapping on the Hatchlings. While this will shoo them away, players can also deploy catapults that fire slime to hamper the Hatchlings efforts. After a while player will be rewarded with a unique power-up where the camera swaps to a selfie viewpoint. This allows players to blow away all the Hatchlings, safely returning all the eggs to the nest.

“We’re thrilled to partner with Zappar and Burger King to create this unique AR experience for Angry Birds fans,” said Katri Chacona, Director, Brand Licensing at Rovio Entertainment. “The accessibility of WebAR and wide availability across thousands of Burger King restaurants make this an incredible opportunity to connect with consumers in new ways.” 

Burger King x Angry Birds

Zappar’s ZapWorks platform has powered numerous app-based AR campaigns for several years with its WebAR technology one of the most recent features. It means that brands don’t need an app for a particular marketing campaign as it can all be run on the web. Expect to see this type of promotion become far more commonplace as brands connect with customers, especially as 5G-enabled devices allow for faster streaming.

VRFocus will continue its coverage of WebAR, reporting back with further updates.
